There’s a Folly Fest app!

This year, you can have Folly Fest right at your fingertips with our new app. The great people at Rytech Digital have developed a beautiful app just for Folly Fest!

The app includes the full schedules for all music stages, as well the schedule for the Performing Arts Stage and workshops. You can also find the full artist lineup, with links to artist websites, youtube, and Facebook. Love a band? Share them with your friends with a quick link to Facebook, or add them to your favorites to receive alerts, and never miss a thing. On the app, you’ll find information on the silent disco, including the Full lineup of DJs, and a quick link to buy VIP Silent Disco passes to skip the line, and always have a pair of headphones at the ready.

The app also helps Folly Fests’ Green initiative become even simpler. It breaks down the 5-bin waste management, so you can make sure as much waste as possible is diverted from the landfill! Another awesome feature is an interactive map of the Folly Forests around New Brunswick. A portion of all ticket revenue goes to planting small deciduous native fruiting trees and shrubs around the Maritimes. With the map, you can zoom in on all the forests that are located around New Brunswick, to see the impact that Folly Forests is making!

To top it all off, the app shows the current weather in Gagetown, NB as well as a 7 day forecast, to make sure you are prepared for anything on Folly Weekend. To see all the magic for yourself, download the app now for free on your Android or iOS device at:

We would like to extend our gratitude towards Jeff Coleman for helping us out with this amazing app.

Folly Films

New this year to Folly Fest, we are excited to introduce Folly Films in partnership with the NB Film Co-op. A New Brunswick organization dedicated to providing an environment in which members can develop skills in film and video production, as well as promoting independent film and video in New Brunswick.

Folly Fest has been committed to supporting artists of all disciplines, and the addition of Folly Films to the 2017 edition of the festival is our newest expansion.  Selected films will be screened between Yippee stage performances, at the Courthouse, and near the Main Stage. Whether you are a filmmaker or projectionist looking for an audience for your work, or you are looking to relax in the grass, drink a Graystone beer, and watch a local film, Folly Films has something for everyone.
