Seto Folk is a festival where experience and inspiration buds from the fusion of music and nature. The festival takes place in Värska, Setomaa, and this year’s theme is “Facing the Forests”. This positively peculiar party starts on June 16th, 2017 and lasts for a whole three days.
Setomaa´s forests are full of wonders, deceivers and tricks. Therefore, even the performers have to balance that fine line between normality and craziness, most of the time surpassing it in their wildness. In fact, the on-the-edge-wildness is the middle name of Seto Folk with the previous themes “Üle piiri“(Over the border!) and “Näitame keelt” (Tongues out!).
In addition to great music and beautiful venues, there is a kids´ area for the little ones, a “lawn university” for thinkers, Fenno-Ugric Film Festival films shown in a cosy yurt for film-lovers and wonderful hikes for adventurers.
Bring the whole family – there is something for everyone. The festival program is continually being updated and a full schedule will be published very soon!
The archaic and genuine Seto culture can be experienced with all senses – you can listen and sing along to the Seto leelo, warm up your dance moves at a real Seto village party, learn traditional crafts and taste the authentic Seto foods.
