National Folk Festival Canberra - 18 to 22 April, 2019

Theres something about folk festivals, being surrounded by quirky, creative, intelligent and subtle magic for a few days leaves you feeling both grounded but enlightened in equal measure. From spoken word to Australian Soul performers to comedy to a Kidzfest, your synapses will be firing on all cylinders while you twirl your way through a jam-packed five day program.

The entire program can be found here. Be sure to make the most of the Culture Loop shuttle, dropping you at all the must-do attractions around the city for the golden price of $0! First stop is right outside the hostel, and enjoy the ride!
