This list of the top neofolk bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Neofolk groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all neofolk bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest neo folk bands of all time, since the most famous neofolk artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best neofolk music.

You can click on the neofolk band names to see more information about that particular notable neofolk group. If they're near the top of the best neofolk artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top neofolk bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the neofolk band names themselves.

Ben Harper and Florence and the Machine are only the beginning of the items on this list. Rock the vote (not the boat) by clicking thumbs up on your favorite items. What will come out on top in the end? Acid Mothers Gong? Mike Oldfield?

All important, significant and iconic names in neofolk music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new neofolk bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of neofolk, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into neofolk music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good neofolk bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent neofolk bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best neofolk bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest neofolk musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular neofolk bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

You can change the order of this list by having your friends vote too. (87 items)
