The Spiral Earth directory of folk, roots, blues and world music festivals in Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, County Durham and Tees.
Festival dates, and indeed, whether to actually stage a festival in 2021 are questions vexing all festival organisers at the moment. Many events are scheduled with new dates from when they are normally held. Where dates are announced we have them below, some haven’t announced yet but check their websites for further info.
