PEOPLE at Backes - on a hike in spring 2024!

In our concert series FOLK at Backes, you get up close to the artists throughout the year. In the spring of 2024, Backes Bu is being renovated, and we will continue the success from last autumn with PEOPLE on Vandring! You still get good concert experiences and a nice meeting place some evenings in the winter, but we take the concerts on a walk both here and there during the spring.

See the spring program here:
