The 39th annual Vancouver Folk Music Festival, the premiere folk and roots festival in the heart of the city, has announced its full slate of headlining evening concerts.

Mark your calendars for July 15-17 at Jericho Beach in Kits, as crowds of 40,000 are expected to see 60+ international, national, and local acts. From blues to bluegrass, Celtic to banjos, Hawaiian, electro-trad, acoustic and spoken word, the legendary diversity of VFMF is sure to get Vancouverites moving to old favourites and new discoveries.

Early bird pricing runs out this Saturday, so you have a few more days to score discounted tickets to one of the best community-based weekends in town.
