Folk+, sponsored by Grassy Hill Entertainment, is the virtual add-on to the 2023 Folk Alliance International Conference, featuring peer sessions, breakout groups, social events, premiering of exclusive content from the in-person conference, and more.


Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with other industry professionals from around the world in FAI’s new online community platform, Chorus! The goal of Folk+ is to respond to the demand for virtual content and make our annual conference accessible to as many people as possible.


You do not need to attend the in-person conference to have access to Folk+. Registration is pay-what-you-can, ranging from $0 to $75. As a non-profit organization, we appreciate your support at any level. 

NEW DATES: Folk+ has been moved from February to March 8-9, 2023.
