Fanø is a little island off the south-west coast of Denmark about 12 minutes away from the mainland by boat and though the North Sea might not summon tropical vistas the west coast of the island is one long sandy beach.
And in July it’s home to Fanø Free Folk Festival.
The organisers say:
“Once again Fanø Free Folk Festival has the pleasure of inviting you to 3 days of glorious and bold meetings between experimental sounds and folk roots in the heart of Sønderho – one of the most beautiful villages in Denmark, situated on the isle of Fanø.
‘Fanø Free Folk Festival offers a diverse and international program between folk music, experimental improvisation, psychedelic music, sound art, field recordings and much more. In total you can hear more than 20 acts.”
