Castlefest brings a mix of many styles of folk music.

You have bands like The SIDH with a very modern style of folk to Sunfire with their country folky feel, to Russkaja with their polka folk madness.

One other style you will be able to enjoy is the Pagan Folk. There are quite a few bands at Castlefest playing different styles of Pagan folk, Prima Nocta with their bagpipes and drums, Waldkauz with their dance-able tunes, Cesair (do I need to say more), Vael who will give you music in honour of the Celtiberian wolf god, and so many more.

Besides listening to this music you can also up your knowledge on the pagan folk scene at the Academy!

On Friday from 16.30h you can join CeltCast’s Alex Sealgaire in the academy tent with Waldkauz , RASTABAN and Vael , to get to know more about this beautiful style of folk!

You shouldn’t miss out!

When you’re visiting Castlefest 2019 and you love to dance then balfolk is an experience you shouldn’t miss out on!

Balfolk contains all kinds of dances, from a romantic Mazurka to an energetic Polka. Most dances are danced in couples but some of them are danced in groups, which is a lovely way to meet new people!

If you don’t know the steps yet, don’t worry: on Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning there are balfolk workshops with the music of Paracetamol who play bittersweet folk with a hint of jazz.

During Castlefest, there are several bands where you’ll be able to practise your newly learned balfolk skills.

Cesair plays mythological music which is perfect for some mellow dances. Both Asynje and VIRELAI perform music with Scandinavian roots which is guaranteed to get your feet moving!

Waldkauz can be both wild and dreamy, leading to a variety of dances. If it is an energetic polka or uplifting waltz you love to dance, then both Sunfire and Pyrolysis are worth a visit!

Other bands who are known to attract “balfolkies” are RASTABAN , Vael and Brisinga . Oh, and rumour has it that perhaps on Saturday after the Wicker there will be a jam session with balfolk music at the Meadow Stage.

In other words, Balfolkies, experienced and new, see you at Castlefest dancing to your heart’s desire!!!

We’re also gearing up for Castlefest!

Even though we’re still recovering from an amazing Fantasy Forest, we’re also already gearing up for Castlefest !

We will be there dancing to amazing Balfolk sounds. We will be paganfolking our hearts out to Waldkauz , Vael , Drusuna , RASTABAN and more. We will be experiencing the combinations that form Belga Boys and Varend Volk . We will be diving deep into ourselves with the almost meditative music of Cesair and Brisinga , and we will be partying untill we fall over with bands like Euzen , Sunfire , The SIDH , Pyrolysis , La Horde , Harmony Glen and so many more! This just might be the last festival we ever visit, as we’re not actually sure how to survive all of this yet, but we’ll give it a valliant effort 😉

But also, let’s not forget that we will be presenting several parts of the Castlefest Academy, two of which have already been published, one about festival organisation and one about Pagan Folk, which will all be massively interesting to see, but will also include you, as you can ask all your questions as well!

We hope to see you all at Castlefest, for hugs, talks and dances! And should we meet, know that with our new banner also come new badges, dedicated to Castlefest. As usual these were designed by our own Rosanne and this time they incorporate TWOIA, the faerie known as The Wonder Of It All. We will give them away to those of you we meet at the festival and exchange a hug or a smile. If you want your own personal badge to add to your collection, or start a collection with, be quick about it as we only have a very limited amount to give away!
