Where is my favourite act playing?’ and ‘What time is insert festival stalwart here playing?’ are questions you need ask no more! Presenting you with this year’s Gig Planner in full. Every venue, every act, every time slot (or at least correct at the time of publishing) are now available for you to print off and plan your weekend. BUT do remember as a completely free festival if you do enjoy this year’s event, then please consider putting a donation in one of our collecting pots. The full gig guide will be available in our printed programme for a suggested £2 donations, that includes features, highlights, must-sees, interviews, artist bios and much more!

Across the weekend you’ll notice our volunteers roaming the festival with money pots. We often get asked where these donations go! For 27 festivals we’ve kept Leigh Folk completely free, we’re a registered arts charity and organised totally by a small team of dedicated volunteers in their spare time. Your donations go to paying for the acts we book, staging, signage, printing, insurance, security, van hire… you can imagine how much there is to organise.
You’d be surprised how much of a difference the street collection makes. You may have exchanged your donation for one of our printed programmes, or maybe you’ve just enjoyed your time with us – whatever the reason – next time someone walks by or you pass one of our information points, please consider putting something in the pot.
