The conference will be hosted by Fira Mediterranea, one of the most important showcase festivals for traditional music & arts and an active member of EFN.

Festival Het Lindeboom 2022 (France)
Het Lindeboom is a major trad folk festival in France. For its XXth anniversary, the organisers have prepared a fantastic program. We are happy that they offered a slot to Tsuumi Sound System who will take the stage on July 23 who have inspired a whole generation of contemporary trad folk bands in Europe with their steady rock “sound”.
