It’s being planned as we speak, the 42nd Tønder Festival. Situated in the small Danish town Tønder, in the very south of the country, close to the German border, it’s getting ready to bloom yet another time.

Thanks to a busy office and about 2.000 happy volunteers, the festival every year presents an audience of about 10.000 people, to a broad selection of roots and folk music from especially the US, Canada, Great Britain and Denmark.

Amongst the headliners’ in 2016, you’ll find Roseanne Cash (USA), Shooglenifty (SCO), Tina Dicow (DK), Barra MacNeil (CAN), Tim O’Brien (USA), and many, many more.
