We can hardly believe the second postponement of Whirl-y-Fayre to the 5th-7th August 2022. As we speak in early May 2021, there is much to be positive about current Covid progress in the UK but so many uncertainties remain. We feel we are unable to confidently commit funds at this time, not least and not only due to lack of Covid cancellation insurance. In addition government guidelines, although promising, are still to be ratified. The license department have made it clear that they are bound by whatever rules may still be in place. Coming out of the pandemic also presents a wide range of other obstacles which we feel are insurmountable and would jeopardise keeping the Fayre the beautifully intimate event we have come to know so well. We feel we must protect Whirl-y-Fayre and do everything we can to make sure that the next Fayre is the best one so far and not at risk of being the last. To this end we plan to keep our early bird tickets on sale for the time being to encourage as many as possible to help us by investing in our future together, although full refunds without booking fee deductions are available by request at any time from wow@whirl-y-gig.org.uk We hope, once again, to carry over the complete roster of artists and contributors to next year and our website will reflect this with updates as they occur.

Whirl-y-Fayre is more than just a small festival and more than just a dance event. From beyond the realms of ordinary reality it connects with the sublime, with each other and with the magic of life. Whirl-y-Fayre is a beautiful gem, a global dance event with humanity at heart, where people of all ages and places can make discoveries and share experience, where we can be free!
Whirl-y-Fayre is like no other, the biggest and best little festival where every element blends perfectly together to create a unique vibration sustained by love, laughter and one sound 24 hour music programming. At every moment artists contribute to one flowing trip, perfect in time and situation, musicians of all ages and places.
At Whirl-y-Fayre, that special ‘something in the air’ is tangible and felt by all, and it binds everything together to produce a complete experience for everyone. Happy happenings also include the Krafty Kids Tent, Robbie’s Psy Art and the expanded Goddess Temple workshops and healing garden. You can rely on Glenda’s bender in our 24 hour Café together with Peter’s bar open from mid-day until 2am. Within the magic realm you will also find a story-telling Tipi, the Energy Collective and of course a never fading fire pit.
Voted ‘Best Family Festival’ by readers of Green Parent magazine and finalist in the NOEA Small Event of the Year Awards, Whirl-y-Fayre is recognised as a heart-warming joyful community where close friendships blossom, where we feel intimacy with earth, sun, moon and each other. It is an event difficult to describe and a moment impossible to miss.

“I have to say, that being more of a larger festival goer, I felt unsure what I had let myself in for. However, nothing could prepare me for one of the most mind-blowing events of my life. ”
(Steve Tremmel)



“Dear Whirl-Y-Tribe, Thank you from the deepest recesses of my heart for such a special weekend of good vibes, huge rainbows and a field full of faeries and fun.”
