Dear Port Fairy Folk Festival Friend,

The Festival office has been busier than ever planning for your 2020 Port Fairy Folk Festival, from the artistic program to refining the site, and volunteers working away on everything from installations to researching the all important toilet facilities - every facet of the festival is up front and centre, and we are very focussed making the festival brilliant and building on what we did in 2019 to reduce our waste impacts. 

Thanks to Wannon Water, we were able to significantly reduce the use of single use plastic water bottles, by bringing in great tasting tap water from nearby Hamilton, and encouraging patrons to fill up their water bottles at one of the many water refill stations.
We also introduced an additional waste stream – organic recycling. We are happy to report that more than 3.7 tonnes of food waste was collected this year, and taken to Camperdown Compost.
Our Recycling Fairies were a fantastic resource, helping people dispose of their waste, and helping to keep contamination rates low.
All up, we were able to halve the amount of waste sent to landfill this year! This is an awesome effort and we thank everyone who contributed to this result.
We have lots of improvements planned for the 2020 Festival, and look forward to reducing our impacts further, and will keep you posted on all initiatives.

Subscriber tickets on sale 12:01 am 2 September - 
All ticket holders can go in the mix to win a magnificent Maton guitar

Subscriber tickets will go on sale at 12:01am 2 September. Make a note of your ticket number and you can once again have the chance to win a beautiful Maton guitar.  All ticket holders are eligible to enter by answering some simple questions which will be announced in mid August. 

The lucky winner will receive the new Maton S808, a delightful addition to the well established and much loved Maton 808 range.

This guitar produces a tone that is a complete surprise given the small size of its body. Scalloped bracing and a 95mm soundhole combine to make the Sitka Spruce top super responsive across all frequencies.

The solid Qld Maple back and sides provide a crisp, clear character to the tone and the full depth of the 808 body provides a deep, clean bass response.

An Ovangkol fingerboard and bridge add presence to the treble frequencies making this guitar ideal for fingerstyles or more intricate flat picking styles. 

We will commence announcing our 2020 line up on 26 August. 
The 44th festival: March 06 – 09, 2020
