Festival Description

Begun in 1989 and held during the second week of July and geared to the whole family, the Førde Folk Music Festival offers a multicultural display of traditional, folk, and world music from all corners of the globe, along with courses, exhibitions, festival parades, dance fun and children’s activities. The themes change slightly from season to season, but the focus tends to be on Europe, with additional music from exotic places such as Mongolia, Malaysia, South Africa and Canada. Leading Norwegian folk musicians are featured alongside the 250 festival artists.
