We are Ireland's first Gender Balanced Festival

There are many reasons why The Folly is special!

One of these is the fact that it’s the first gender balanced festival in Ireland! This means that there are equal numbers of male and female acts performing!!! In the music industry male performers currently outnumber female 5:1 but not at The Folly!

“We realised that there was a need for a gender balanced festival, so we decided we would have the first one!”
