The 2023 Euroradio Folk Festival (EFF) will take place during the Rudolstadt Festival in Germany on
7-9 July 2023, kindly hosted by ARD-MDR (Germany).
Kanteles, fiddles, accordions, balalaikas, throat singing, yodelling: these and many more can be heard at the annual Euroradio Folk Festival (EFF), where bands and artists redefine the frontiers of folk music through their ethno, jazz, traditional and crossover projects.
More than a mere festival, this event is a platform presenting the incredible diversity of musical genres and sounds of all lifestyles in European folk music.
The Festival venues have encompassed the length and breadth of Europe, from Førde in Norway to Segovia in Spain, and from Cork to Tallinn.
The EFF is well known for its live concerts, but perhaps even more for its radio transmissions. All the concerts are recorded and provided at no cost by the host to other EBU radio organizations as part of the Euroradio music exchange. On average, each concert is broadcast by 20 radio stations in Europe and beyond, with transmissions as far afield as the Asia-Pacific region and North America.
Listen to the playlist containing some of the acts selected by EBU radio organizations for the
2022 Euroradio Folk Festival. The offer is available in MUS under reference FM/2022/08/01/01-15.
