The third Folkstation Festival takes place from Friday 9th until Sunday 11th July 2010. Located at the Havenstreet Steam Railway, on the Isle Of Wight. The festival has been built up from a 'fringe' group of folk musicians who gathered together to play at railway events over 35-year history of the railway.

Line-up

The first acts confirmed are headliners Spiers & Boden, along with Deborah Hodgson, Lucid, Andrew McKay & Carole Etherton, Vicky Swan & Jonny Dyer, Capella, Windwytch, Kathy Wallis, Spare Parts Concertina Band, Hilary Ward, and Patti Smith & Ned Clamp. Friday will see a Folk Club led by Downlands Folk, and a Ceilidh featuring the Caulkheads. The festival will offer a selection of local Isle of Wight acts and headline acts from the UK. There will be a mixture of stage events, concerts, a ceilidh, workshops and traditional dancers.


Tickets

Early-bird tickets are available at the 2009 price of £35, with tickets for under 14s priced at £10. This offer is available until 31st January 2010. To download the booking form, click here.

Camping

There will be full weekend camping adjacent to the station (fortunately the trains don't run after tea-time so camping is in a peaceful, rural location).

Travel

Car ferry
Inclusive discounted ferry tickets can be booked through the festival office. Alternatively bookings can be made with either Wightlink or Red Funnel ferries.

Passenger ferries
Passenger ferries run from Southsea (Hovertravel), Portsmouth Harbour (Wightlink Catamarans), and Southampton docks (Red Funnel's Red-Jets). Foot passengers can also travel on any of the car ferries. Bus route 9 from Newport takes festival goers to Wootton Station where they can catch the steam train to Havenstreet.

Train
Through tickets to Havenstreet can be purchased anywhere on the UK rail network via Portsmouth Harbour station and the passenger ferries to Ryde. The steam railway links to the island train system; just catch the train from Ryde (from the pier head or the Esplanade) and change at Smallbrook Junction to travel by steam straight into the festival site at Havenstreet.

Plane
The festival site also has two airfields.

More information will be here when available.
