Live performances

Most of the live performances at English Folk Expo are presented by Manchester Folk Festival, a festival of export-ready English folk, roots and acoustic music.  All delegates have access to relevant Manchester Folk Festival programme as well as additional delegate-only showcases and receptions.

Artist announcements are made via this website from March – July each year, with artist applications closing at the end of February.

Around 40 artist showcases take place during EFEx each year, in venues from 80-2,500 capacity.
