What it’s all about

GNUF is a celebration of the ukulele, of music, of talent, and of community. We fill Huddersfield with fun, laughter, and of course, ukuleles. Bringing the best international ukulele artists, innovative performance art, immersive musical experiences, it’s a family-friendly, surreal, and beautiful festival.

Fabulous Festival

Jake Shimabukuro - Artist

Second to none! It has the spirit and community feeling like no other that I’ve ever attended!

Peter Luongo - Teacher, Workshop Leader, & Artist

One of the best festivals on the planet

Jay Molina - Artist

Great Atmosphere. Something Truly Special

Andy Eastwood - Artist

I have travelled the world in search of the ultimate ukulele festivals. GNUF is the absolutely, hands down, best one I have been to! Brilliant workshops, performers, merch market! And the most welcoming, friendly Uke players to be found anywhere! Just go!

Lauraileen O'Connor - Attendee

The people are the highlight for me; meeting musicians and fans, hanging out, learning new skills, appreciating talent (and the bizarre) and being able top it off with a jam every night is amazing. I’ve been back every year

Christopher Osbaldeston - Attendee

For anyone who has ever been to a GNUF event before, this is not just another ukulele festival, it’s a return to what I think is the best ukulele festival there is
