The northern Viru Folk music festival (9-11 August, 2013) focuses this year on Swedish culture. The musical section of our main programme relates to Sweden and includes several performers of Swedish origin; our movie programme is also Swedish-flavoured. The environment and photo programme are also influenced by this year’s Swedish theme, as is the children’s programme.

This year, as usual, there are three large outdoor stages in Käsmu and there is also plenty of music on the four smaller stages. In addition, street musicians fill the festival’s main street with instrumental music.
