Folk On The Dock producers have been keen to provide a platform for new, diverse and emerging talent since its launch in 2016. Testimony to this is the inclusion of Liverpool award-winning singer songwriter Robert Vincent, who returns this year as a headline artist following his first appearance two years ago in a small venue at Folk On The Dock.

Grammy nominated lyricist and double Ivor Novello award winner Chris Difford, the co-founder of Squeeze, will also be performing. Janice Long, Daoiri Farrel and Robert Vincent will also be there.

This year's festival is spreading beyond the confines of Albert Dock, along the waterfront into the Museum of Liverpool. Not only will there be ten stages, but music will be played on boats around the water's edge and in the Maritime Museum.
