Music, sun, beach and water. Those are the words to describe the festival of Samsø. For four days in July the little island located in Kattegat transforms itself into what the organisers believe is the cosiest festival in Denmark. It was back in 1989 that a group of Samsø inhabitants decided to see if the island was ready to arrange a music festival. The founders all enjoyed going to other festivals in Denmark, so they felt it was time for their island to have its own. They wanted to create a festival that was both welcoming and relaxing for its visitors, but most of all it had to be cosy.
