TFF Rudolstadt is Germany’s foremost festival of roots, folk and world music. Held in the central region of Thuringia, it’s also one of the top world music festivals in Europe. It takes place annually from the fi rst Thursday in July until the following Sunday and attracts up to 25,000 people daily.
TFF Rudolstadt dates back to 1955, when the 1st Festival of German Folkdance was organized in Rudolstadt. It evolved into an East German celebration of folk dance with strong East European participation. Following German reunifi cation, in 1991 the festival was relaunched with a completely new concept. Initially a forum for the traditional folk scene designed to bring Germans from east and west closer together, TFF rapidly grew into a world music festival of international renown.
