The Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival is back this summer with more shanties, great venues and incredible atmosphere. Join us in beautiful Falmouth this June for three days of non-stop shanties at various venues throughout the town.
The 2016 performance schedule will be available soon, featuring 59 groups over 23 venues.
Welcome to one of the biggest maritime music festivals in Europe! The town will play host to hundreds of hours of free to attend shanty performances, with only our special Gala Concert ticketed, and proceeds going to the RNLI. Falmouth will be filled with music, singing and infused with a great community spirit. The Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival is held at multiple venues throughout the town with main stages being Seasalt Stage on Custom House Quay, Skinners Stage on Events Square (Discovery Quay) and Seven Stars Stage on The Moor.
