The Inter Varsity Folk Dance Festival (IVFDF) is the UK's longest running folk festival offering a series of concerts, ceilidhs and barn dances from a selection of folk artists.

The 6nd IVFDF takes place from Friday 1st until Sunday 3rd March 2013, at University of Sheffield, Sheffield, in South Yorkshire.

Line-up

Mawkin, Blackbeard's Tea Party, Professor Elemental, Bell Hagg Orkestar, Pilgrims' Way, Hekety, Luke Brady's Scottish Dance Band, Stick Shift, Sciorr:Staged, and The Albion Band. There's more still to be announced.

The festival is 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.
