The Sixth Two For Joy May Bank Holiday (All Day) Folk Festival changes location to the legendary Passing Clouds in Dalston. 13 bands take over the entire venue with stages upstairs and down, showcasing the hottest emerging talent from the UK folk scene. Heaps of local bands and bands from all over the country converge for a jam packed folk out, bringing the Fire in the Mountain Festival vibe to deepest Hackney.
 
The event starts at 1pm with a small market and a programme of free workshops for all the family. Come early for wood-fired Pizza, proper coffee, a smoothie stall from the Fire in the Mountain traders. Relax with the Sunday papers and be entertained by bands in the splendid top floor “lounge” at Passing Clouds, or get active with the workshops downstairs.
