Listen to Folk on the Rocks live all weekend with Cabin Radio

Live festival music returns to the NWT this weekend as Folk on the Rocks’ 2021 edition takes place in Yellowknife. Catch the whole thing on Cabin Radio

You can listen to almost 30 hours of continuous live coverage through the Cabin Radio website or Cabin Radio app, starting on Friday at 7pm and continuing on Saturday and Sunday from 12:30pm till late.

Cabin Radio, one of the festival’s major sponsors, will again broadcast live from a special studio next to the Cabin Stage at the heart of the festival. You’ll hear a mix of live performances from the Main Stage, Beer Garden Stage, and Cabin Stage alongside interviews with many of the acts.


If you’re heading to the festival, check out our merch tent at the top of the Cabin Stage. And watch out for the Mud Dunk Tank operating nearby on Saturday, featuring your chance to dunk a celebrity or two to support CIBC Run for Our Lives’ Mud Bucket Challenge in aid of northern cancer care.

(Advance notice: If you want to dunk Ollie in mud, he’s scheduled for 7:30-8:30pm. Also available: Caroline Wawzonek 2:30-3:30, Katrina Nokleby 3:30-4:30, Niels Konge 4:30-5:30, Rebecca Alty 6:30-7:30.)
