The L2F Lichfield Festival of Folk 2020

It is with great sadness that we have decided, as a result of government recommendations and continuing uncertainty, to cancel L2F Lichfield Festival of Folk 2020.  All other Lichfield Arts events until the end of October, including the Fuse Festival, the Blues & Jazz Festival and the September and October Guildhall concerts have also been cancelled.

We appreciate the understanding of all the artists that we had booked for this year’s L2F, and look forward to having them perform for us in the future.  On that note, we are pleased to announce that the dates for L2F Lichfield Festival of Folk 2021 have been confirmed: we will welcome friends old and new back to our beautiful city from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th October 2021.

We do have something to keep music alive for this summer, though.  Carrying on from the popular and successful Songwriting Competitions of previous years, L2F is pleased to announce that we have initiated for this year only a Songwriting Challenge.

Given the unprecedented events that have had such an impact on the music business during 2020, our challenge for songwriters is to create a song that explores aspects of the theme of ‘Lockdown to Freedom’, or LtoF.  L2F wants your LtoF creations, and we invite both new and established artists to explore and interpret that theme in its widest sense.  We will share entries on our website and other social media platforms and promote your work to a wider audience.

Details of the Songwriting Challenge, together with rules and an entry form, can be accessed through the link on the left of this page.

In the meanwhile, stay safe and well and keep checking back here and on our Facebook page for the latest updates about L2F Lichfield Festival of Folk 2021.
