Lars Jakob Rudjord premieres his work on Kjempe - Jo.

I have been fascinated by the walker "Kjempe-Jo" ever since I heard Annbjørg Lien play it a few years ago. And when I discovered that the man who gave the name to the mowing was one of my ancestors, I simply had to address this, says Rudjord.

This year's first artist release - press release 21.04.2021

The board of Farsund Folk Festival decided early on that it would be a festival in 2021. We carried it out in 2020, and then we thought that of course we would be able to arrange a festival also in 2021. We just did not quite know how. We have quietly worked with several scenarios, discussed different concepts and been in contact with different artists and bands. We have now arrived at a sketch, a framework for a festival that makes us feel confident in taking care of both the musical content and infection control.

Information about the corona and the implementation of the festival

We promise to do our utmost to carry out a safe festival where the magical musical memories are left behind, not covid 19 and infection tracking. At all our events, we will carry out a risk analysis that also involves the conditions surrounding the risk of infection, and will facilitate that we can all comply with the applicable rules.
