Welcome to IVFDF 2013

Friday 1st March to Sunday 3rd March



IVFDF is the country’s longest continually running folk festival, aimed squarely at students (although anyone who feels they can keep up is welcome) and run by a different university each year. IVFDF is a non-stop weekend based (fairly broadly) around traditional forms of music and dance.

In 2013 for the record breaking 8th time it will be hosted by Sheffield.


  • Ceilidhs with Black Beards Tea Party, Hekety
  • Concerts with The Albion Band, Pilgrims’ Way, Sciorr Staged, Bell Hagg Orkestar, Professor Elemental
  • Morris Tour
  • Contra with Stick Shift
  • Scottish dance with Luke Brady’s Scottish Dance Band
  • Workshops


Tickets are available in advance of the festival in our shop, and from festival reception whilst the festival is on.  We will have plenty of weekend and individual event tickets available to buy during the festival, we have now sold our last in-door camping space, however there is a youth hostel quite close to our venues so if you still need some where cheap to stay please contact them.
