Shanty festival in Southern Norway – Flekkefjord
On the 15th of June 2019 there will be a Shanty festival in the pittoresque city Flekkefjord – The International Maritime Folk Festival. All events are free of charge.
There will be music for all ages – and tastes. Enjoy music from all over the world, that has followed
sailors and seafarers around the seven seas through generations.
The festival will bring you a mix of traditional shanty music and modern sailor’s tunes. You will get to
meet singers from Norway, Poland, Germany and Holland. White sails, great music, awesome food and
a friendly atmosphere is on the menu.
If you have some time to spare, we recommend a visit to the city museum, a hike on one of our marked
hiking trails, some great shopping in Flekkefjord city centre, or refreshing rail biking at Flekkefjordbanen.
Flekkefjord has lots of attractions.
Welcome to the International Maritime Folk Festival!
