10 years folkBALTICA – the Amber Road Festival

“The Amber Road Festival” is the title of our 10th jubilee festival from 7-11 May 2014. We will be travelling south along the ancient trade route from the Baltic to the Mediterranean, from Russia to Italy and showing the musical interweaving that occurs when different cultures meet.

But the focus will of course still be on music from around the Baltic. At the 10th folkBALTICA Festival we are for the very first time bringing together musicians from all ten countries bordering on the Baltic Sea for the first time.  This diversity is unique, and we are greatly looking forward to the musical encounters.

The Opening Concert takes place on 7 May at 20:00 in the Alsion in Sønderborg/DK.

Our new main concert venue is Deutsches Haus in Flensburg. The first main concert on Friday 9 May at 20:00 is dedicated to singing. At the second main concert on Saturday 10 May we will make a musical journey along the Amber Road. After the two main concerts the Festival Club will open its doors in the Imagine Bar of Deutsches Haus at 23:00.

The Final Concert is on 11 May at 20:00 at the Marienkirche in Flensburg.
