Trade stands for the this year’s English Folk Expo have now sold out. If you would like to be added to the waiting list for a trade stand please register your interest here and we will contact you if a stand becomes available.

English Folk Expo welcomes music industry representatives from the UK and across the world to this showcase of professional, export-ready contemporary and traditional English folk, roots and acoustic music artists. If you are a music programmer and have a budget that can be used to book these artists for your festivals or events we would be interested in inviting you to EFEx. Alternatively, if you work in another part of the industry which supports artists (such as a music agency) we would be interested to hear from you.

Delegate places are limited and so it is important for us to get the broadest and most appropriate range of delegates to attend the event. This will help maximise the professional opportunities for the showcasing musicians. We therefore politely request interested delegates to complete the below form in order for us to assess your application to attend EFEx.

Please include international codes if necessary.

Data Protection

Data entered on this site will be used by the EFEx Team to run the next EFEx event including using your photograph, bio and contact details in our pocket guide and app (subject to your approval), and for processing your payment information. EFEx will keep this data stored through an encrypted channel so that if you become a returning customer, much of the registration process is pre populated. EFEx will delete this data permanently if not used after 7 years, or if requested by you. As EFEx is a business to business event, all data we store are for our suppliers or potential suppliers, not general members of the public. We only keep information of contacts pertinent to the music industry. If you would like to see any data we hold on file for you, or would like us to permanently delete your data from our files, please email

We use Stripe and FX Payments to process any financial transactions. Both of these companies comply with General Data Protection Regulation. We will never pass your online data on to third parties, although contact details (including email, phone and organisation) that you have approved will be included in delegate lists which are circulated round attendees at EFEx, our funders and partners.
