Far from madding crowd: Denmark's quiet festival

 

Summer is a time for big music and sports events in Europe and the U.S., with huge crowds and big names. But this weekend, Denmark is hosting a new and quieter festival featuring a smaller program of music matched with discussions and food events, held in and around an island castle.

The Heartland Festival expects to draw about 6000 visitors to its programs, which include musicians such as Mark Ronson, The Flaming Lips, Kvamie Liv and Sun Kil Moon. There will be talks by performance artists, architects and artists, including Brian Eno—and a culinary program featuring top chefs.

The venue for the event is Egeskov Castle, a popular tourism target on the southern island of Funen. For more details from TheLocal.DK, click HERE
