Hello, dear ones! This year, as always, the 5th New Year's Eve*Folk Festival will take place at Colditz Castle near Leipzig from the evening of 27th December 2023 to morning of 1st January 2024. A 5-day dance holiday including a place to sleep and good food. Top Balfolk bands are waiting to get you dancing and there will be no shortage of workshops either. What better way to start the new year than to dance the night away with friends and music?


♥♥♥ 27th December
Please check the notice board at reception for the latest changes :-)

♥♥ 17th December
The dance and music courses are finally almost completely published. Some course leaders have not yet sent us a text. In these cases you will have to take inspiration from the course title.

♥ 8th December
We have finally uploaded the schedule for the bands. Unfortunately, the dance and music courses are still almost completely missing.

♫ 24th September
It is still too early for the detailed schedule. The bands need to give their approval for the first draft. :-) But here are the start and end times:
Start of the festival:
Arrival 27th December from 3 pm. That's when the youth hostel opens. If you arrive earlier, you can take refuge with us in the Landesmusikakademie and help with the set-up or just relax. Hot meal 5pm to 7pm at the youth hostel. First ball 7pm at the Landesmusikakademie.
End of the festival:
Departure 1st January. Breakfast 9am to 11am. Last ball 11 am to 12:30 pm.

♪ 17th September
Oh kids, how time flies. :-) We have of course not lost sight of New Year's Eve after the numerous summer dance evenings. Therefore on Friday 22 September at 8pm the presale is starting at our booking page https://eveeno.com/silvesterfolk2023.
Another band that will grace us on the side is the Hartwin Dhoore Trio. Wohoo!

♯ 16th July
After some delay we are creating the band descriptions for this little website. :-) Look forward to a great festival with Airboxes (BE), Noiranomis (BE), Mathæus Bech Quintet (DK), Nubia (NL/SE), Emily & The Simons (BE/UK), Familie Gerstenberg (DE), Duo FA (DE), Plume (FR), Marion & Steve (DE), La Sylva (FR) and GrandLoup (FR)
