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:
“Fanø Free Folk Festival is back – this time with a very special 10 year anniversary edition! We’re thrilled to announce the first 5 acts to Fanø Free Folk Festival – 10 year anniversary. Welcome to:
Stick in the Wheel (UK)
Kapela Maliszów (PL)
Bona Fide (DK)
We’re so grateful for all the support we’ve received through the years since we launched the festival as a crazy experiment in 2010. Since then we feel Fanø has become a home for the music that we love and an always welcoming harbour where different folk music traditions and free form experiments from all over the world meet and thrive. We think that that is worth celebrating, and celebrate we’ll do, when we return to Sønderho with the 10 year anniversary edition of Fanø Free Folk Festival.”
