English Folk Expo is the annual gathering for music industry representatives with an interest in the folk, roots and acoustic music sector in England.
We welcome anyone either working or volunteering in any part of the music sector to Manchester to network, innovate and discover with delegates from the UK and across the world at a showcase of more than 50 export-ready artists within this broad and diverse genre.
EFEx runs from Thursday morning to late Saturday night. 2023 dates are 19th – 22nd October. EFEx is held the weekend before WOMEX each year, with WOMEX starting on the Wednesday following EFEx.
In 2023, we are also delighted to host the European Folk Network conference alongside our showcase.
