Hooray, we'll sell festival passes in 2022!

Finally, Farsund Folk Festival 2022 is approaching.
We are kicking off the year by starting the sale of festival passes. The festival pass is like a baby egg. It gives you access to five concerts, a lot of music and you save money. It is unlikely to get better!

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.
