----------------------------------------------------

What do you get if you put some veteran pop and festival experts together to organise a completely new festival? A good festival, just like the old days. That was (and is!) exactly what the organisers of the Folkwoods Festival meant to aim.

In 1998 there were a lot of rumours about our target group, the folkies, being overlooked by synthesizer and guitar violence. Many people complained about festivals. They got thin beer in plastic cups and there were only fattening snacks available. They had to wait for hours to get tokens. They stayed at remote campsites with filthy chemical toilets and no showers. They could listen to some good bands, but there were no activities whatsoever for children.

In 1999 we managed to put our (slumbering) plans into action and in August 2000 the 1st Folkwoods Festival was born. a 5 star festival with beers (8 dfferent tastes) and other drinks in normal glass, food on normal plates, normal and clean toilets, enough seating if wanted. While other folk festivals tend to dilute, by presenting a wider program with a lot of pop acts and world music, Folkwoods mostly aims at European traditional music. This doesn't mean that we present traditional folk music only; within the borders of its style, Folkwoods is going deeper and wider. As a matter of course there is room for Irish, Scotish and Breton folk music, which form the basis for what usually is called 'folk'.

Folkwoods, however, broadens the geographical and musical perspective; from the USA to Italy, from France to Denmark, from traditional jigs and reels to electric guitar-folk and  singer / songwriters. It is a festival for people who like tuneful music from The Netherlands, Europe and the rest of the world!

The Folkwoods Festival takes place in a wonderful setting, in the middle of the woods, and is surrounded by provisions of an unusual high standing. 2.000 people a day at the most are allowed at the festival and campgrounds.
