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 60 export-ready artists within this broad and diverse genre.
About 200 delegates come to English Folk Expo from the UK and beyond. At our most recent showcase, we sold out of delegate places and so would encourage early registration to avoid disappointment.
English Folk Expo runs from Thursday morning to late on Saturday night. It takes place in venues around Manchester’s vibrant Northern Quarter. The next edition is 20th – 22nd March 2025.
