The historic Slacky Flat at Bulli will burst into party mode from 14-17th January 2010, when over 500 performers will converge for the 25th award-winning Illawarra Folk Festival.

The festival is nestled at the base of the Illawarra escarpment only 1 hour south of Sydney, so it is the perfect opportunity for Sydney-based travellers to visit via train and experience the true spirit of folk music, dance, poetry and storytelling. There is something for everyone from young to old with 11 venues to choose from. The Illawarra Folk Festival is family friendly and weatherproof.

So if you are coming to the Illawarra Folk Festival at Bulli on Saturday 16th or Sunday January 2010 then there’s no better way than to join the Folk Music Train departing from Central Station, Sydney.

Dedicated carriages will not only ensure you travel in comfort in the most eco friendly and safest way, but your festival will start when you step on the train. Musicians will entertain you on the trip to Bulli Station which is just five minutes walk to the Festival.
