PEOPLE on Backes

Farsund Folk Festival arranges 5 - 8 concerts throughout the year in addition to the festival itself, which kicks off the last weekend in August.

Through our concert series, FOLK på Backes, we want to give you good folk music experiences of the highest quality all year round. With Backes Bu as a permanent framework around the concerts, we hope to build an intimate and open arena in the middle of Farsund center and perhaps build a permanent folk music scene here in the long run.
