The Denmark Festival of Voice is an intimate festival, held every year over the May long weekend in the beautiful south coastal town of Denmark, Western Australia. A project of Denmark Arts, the Festival is a celebration of the human voice, with one focus being community singing, and each year brings together an inspiring lineup of local, national and international artists in a cappella and accompanied ensemble, group and individual performances, spoken words, story telling, poetry, experimental voices and such from the edge including an array of workshops. The Free Fringe has the streets of Denmark resonating with song all through the festival.
In 2018 the festival is in it's 14th year.
Voices from the past:
'Congratulations to (..) all at the Arts Council. FOV the Best! (...)Sublime and stunning on so many Levels...and simply world-class!Thank you for bringing this Treasure to Denmark and more...it is beyond words. - Dr Loretta do Rozario
'Firstly, congratulations on a wonderful program, it ran smoothly and seamlessly. Secondly, what a line up - more congratulations are deserved. The variety of acts provided for a wide selection for the participations of the festival. I spent most of my time between St Leonards and the Civic Centre as I was drawn to the more 'spiritual' performers (if you could call them that). For me these performances were not only wonderful artists but what they presented was perspective shifting and thought provoking. It broadened and widened my consciousness to the all that is in this life and beyond. Thank you to those who thought and created the opportunity for these artists to be present. Thirdly, all the artists where available for connection and conversation. Fourthly, Although I mostly attended the more 'spiritual' performances; because of the depth of acts I was able to attend many other genres of voice. All amazing. Lastly, the availability of the food at the Bamboo Hut was a great idea - loved the Dahl. Overall, thank you for an amazing festival - the best I have attended here in Denmark. It is world class' - Shirley Motteram/ Denmark Resident
'Moments of euphoria, moments of reflection on how lucky I am to be where I am, moments when I think: if what I've seen so far would be all there was, I would be satisfied.The 2015 Denmark Festival of Voice will undoubtedly nestle in my memory as one of the best. (...) - Anala Linckens in Denmark Bulletin
Festival a joyful celebration. (...) It seemed like it was the best festival ever as it stretched and expanded into the streets and cafes around town. More than 100 locals sang their way through the SUPA IGA before making their way outside for an open-air concert. World artists brought their music and sacred texts to share with us. (...) In a world so often divided by walls and wars of culture and religion, it was a privilege to experience so many of such moments of connection and joyful celebration together. By Sunday afternoon it seemed as if half the town had a permanent smile on their faces. Thank you again to everyone who took part, and to everyone who worked so hard to make it possible' - Neil Riddell in Denmark Bulletin Letters
