The 9th Festival of Folk Rythm and Life

If you were to judge a book by its cover (or a festival by its name), you might be led to believe that FRL is just another folk festival full of bodhrans and fiddles. Well, that’s just not so! Although there is a definite laid-back atmosphere, and plenty of singer-songwriters, the Festival of Folk Rhythm and Life offers so much more.

If you were to judge a book by its cover (or a festival by its name), you might be led to believe that FRL is just another folk festival full of bodhrans and fiddles. Well, that’s just not so! Although there is a definite laid-back atmosphere, and plenty of singer-songwriters, the Festival of Folk Rhythm and Life offers so much more.

In fact, the diversity of musicians is extensive, spanning several genres from folk through to electronica. FRL welcomes both new comers to the scene and a number of Australia’s best-loved artists, including the likes of Archie Roach, Xavier Rudd and Sally Dastey. Musicians from across Australia and overseas arrive in droves each year, in 2004 over 70 acts will play over the 3 days of the festival to an expected crowd of 2000.
