This year sees Sidmouth Festival's Golden Jubilee and preparations are already well underway. Expect top performances from the folk and roots music scene including a Waterson Family Special with Norma Waterson, Martin Carthy, Eliza Carthy, a rare appearance from Mike Waterson and many other family members, Steeleye Span, Ralph McTell, and the Spiers and Boden Big Band. It is likely the organisers will want to make this the biggest and best Sidmouth festival ever.

To celebrate the Golden Jubilee there is a series of "Across the Generations" Concerts featuring many major artists including a Chipolatas special show with Taffy Thomas plus other famous family gatherings.

The Festival spreads into venues throughout the town with a massive range of concerts, dances and workshops to choose from. There are likely to be as many as 600 events over 8 days including international music and dance spectaculars, concerts, ceilidhs, workshops, processions, craft fair, a themed children's festival with plenty of craft activities, fun and games, and workshops and a festival youth programme.

There are usually several venues including the the Arena Stage, and a BBC sponsored marquee in town as well as a Festival Dance House giving you the opportunity to dance from morning until night with leading ceilidh bands.

The workshops offer an opportunity to try out many different styles of dance, sing with the festival choir or play fiddle, melodeon, guitar, bodhran, gamelan, concertina, accordion or percussion and so on.
