THE 45th annual Port Fairy Folk Festival has officially sold out.
Festival ticketing manager and vice-president Shane Lenehan said he was thrilled with the news on Friday, just hours before gates open on the iconic long weekend event.
"We are ecstatic," he said. "We're absolutely thrilled to go from a period as little as three months ago not knowing if we will be able to hold the festival to fully sold out event.
"The committee very excited, everyone's coming in with happy smiling faces and we are looking forward to another amazing weekend."
Event capacity is slightly reduced due to COVID-19, but Mr Lenehan said patrons can expect the same electric Folkie atmosphere.
"Crowd numbers will be similar to previous years, just a little less to make it more comfortable."
