2016 Priddy Folk FestivalThe weather was far better than forecast and ended being up just about perfect.
The music was amazing and definitely one of the best line-ups yet.
The atmosphere seemed even more relaxing than usual and large numbers of people picnicked on the Green throughout the weekend.

We hope these images rekindle wonderful memories of the festival weekend.

A few extra photos for your amusement.

We took the festival banner down Swildons Hole for a publicity stunt.
The aim was to highlight the support provided by the caving community and to explain why the main stage is called Swildons.
It was a memorable caving trip with music from The Drystones and cider courtesy of the Queen Victoria.

Brian and Brenda stood down from the festival having helped at just about every year since it started. They were presented with a card and some goodies during the festival weekend.

2014 Priddy Folk FestivalA great line-up and wonderful weather - perfect!
After two Priddy Folk Festival's with extreme weather, this year was really pleasant. Lots of sunshine with just a bit of light rain on Saturday evening.
The atmosphere started off relaxed and stayed relaxed throughout the weekend.

The official snappers have vastly different photographic styles and put together as a set their images look great!

2013 Priddy Folk FestivalThere's no doubt that this year was the hottest ever Priddy Folk Festival and the first time that seeking shade has been a necessity.
But what a festival !!!

Every year we seem to be saying that the latest festival has had the best line-up ever, but many people have told me just that about 2013.
Your chief snappers personal highlights include More Like Trees, Ushti Baba, the Saturday night Ceilidh with Balshazzar's Feast + Phil Bassindale, Celtech; all topped off by a capacity audience bouncing around with their arms in the air to the astonishing Treacherous Orchestra.
I've been told I missed many other memorable performances including Faustus, Flats and Sharps, The Firepit Collective, De Fuego and too many others for me to recall from memory. Sorry but I can't be everywhere, Priddy is getting too big for that!
And on deliciously surreal note - I watched Priddy Primary School re-enact the hurdles being destroyed by fire through the medium of dance.
Fantastic!

Right - the photos....

2012 Priddy Folk FestivalThis year Priddy Folk Festival celebrated its 21st birthday, and this was without doubt the wettest Priddy Folk Festival ever!
Almost the entire UK was under Severe Weather Warnings from the Met Office and on Friday evening Somerset hit the dizzy heights of a Met Office Red Alert.
All of us who were there can be rightly proud that we endured the weather - AND STILL HAD A GREAT TIME!!!!
The people who come to Priddy have always been what makes this festival special, and this year they proved they are the best!

The images have now been loaded from our four festival photographers - Duncan Simey, Alan Cole, Carole Knowles and Paul Hawley.
Still need to caption the images so you know who the bands are; but the images are up here!
If you have photos you would like to contribute to this gallery, please get in touch with Duncan via duncan@folkfestivalphotos.co.uk

The festival encourages these images to be used.
Artistes are welcome to use them on their websites.
Everyone else is welcome to use them on Facebook.
There are just a couple of caveats.
1) The photographer and festival get credited (e.g. leave the watermark intact).
2) Non-Commercial usage

For non-watermarked images, high resolution files and commercial usage, please email duncan@folkfestivalphotos.co.uk
