In The Future...2010 Folk Festival News, Aidan Knight + We Are The City, Fargo Temptations

>> Sunday, 14 February 2010

Early bird tickets for the 2010 Folk Fest went on sale yesterday.

A few noteworthy items:

For the first time in its history, The Winnipeg Folk Festival will have a capped attendance this year. With crowds at the folk-lovin’ event swelling to an almost-unmanageable size, the festival brass decided to limit daily attendance this year to 14,000.

In another festival first, camping passes will not be sold separately from the festival pass. This was implemented to curb the epidermis-removers who snapped up the camping passes and resold them on Kajiji for double.

Below are the adult early-bird prices. The festival is officially five days from now on - July 7th to July 11th this year - and is pricey, so be creative with the entertainment portion on your monthly budget. I know I'll have to be. Lineup announcements start trickling out in March.

  • 5-day festival pass w/ camping: $216.75
  • 5-day festival pass w/out camping: $181.75
  • Single day pass: $55
