July 4, 2015.
Truly the most amazing festival in Europe. No wonder the British newspaper the Telegraph called Sommerfesten “the most wonderful festival you’ve never heard of,” and in 2013 she echoed The Guardian. Indeed, even on the Internet information about this one-day music event is rather scarce.
Until recently the festival was free. But the growth as the number of visitors is limited to 5,000 people, and in 2011 was six times more) and the associated implementation challenges eventually forced the organizers to establish a fee for the ticket.
On Sommerfesten you meet big names — here are or artists with acoustic programs (including Damien rice, Fran Healy from Travis and Anna Ternheim), or not very widely known indie rock bands. The most important thing here is the atmosphere. On Sommerfesten each guest is haunted by the feeling that he was on a big family holiday. Another curious feature: visitors bring food with them, and anyone can try what others brought. For the money, sold only drinks.
