17 new acts have been added to the lineup for next year’s Port Fairy Folk Festival, more than doubling the itinerary for the four-day event.

The second artist announcement features a handful of international highlights, including the Australian debuts for the US’ John Craigie and Ondara, the UK’s Good Habits, and Canada’s Cat Clyde. Also announced to be making the trek are Judy Collins (from the US), Luka Bloom (from Ireland), Ralph McTell (from England) and the Sharon Shannon Big Band (again from Ireland).

The 2024 Port Fairy Folk Festival will be held over March long weekend (Friday March 8 to Monday 11) in the titular seaside town in southeast Victoria.
