The New Los Angeles Folk Festival celebrates the emergence of new L.A. folk in all its shapes and contrasts. It's traditional and experimental, acoustic and electronic, throwbacks and progressive ideas. They expect to draw as many as 1,000-1,500 people in 2012, up from about 750 last year.

The New Los Angeles Folk Festival is now accepting submissions for the 2012 edition of the festival. Artists will be compensated, with the exact amount to be negotiated. There is 1 slot reserved for a Sonicbids artist.
