Tønder Festival is characterised by authenticity, high quality and, above all, unique experiences. Since 1974 the musical oasis has grown into the most recognised international folk-roots festival in the North, attracting thousands of guests each year. Tønder presents names that cannot be heard anywhere else, from folk and roots to country and indie-rock, that are always delivered straight from the heart by new voices and acclaimed veterans alike. As much as it might sound like an old cliché, Tønder Festival isn’t like all the others. There are no pop stars and no loud electronic DJs to be seen on the music programme.
