Tønder Festival

From being in 1975 a merely local arrangement the festival has gradually developed into an international event. Today the festival is looked upon as one of the great European musical events and has the reputation of having attained a high artistic standard due the international folk musicians playing at the festival. The festival covers a wide range of folk music from blues, bluegrass, singer-songwriters, cajun, zydeco, jazz, gospel to the traditional Irish, Scotch, English and American folk music. Known as well as unknown musicians play their instruments in the streets, sqares, pubs and on the seven official stages. 2014:
