Now that festival season is in full swing, we’ve got a mighty cool scoop for y’all. We present to you, in all its majesty: the embedded Chordify Player! Go ahead and check it out on the Welcome to the Village Festival artist pages.
So when you’re organizing your busy festival schedule, you can play along with featured songs at the same time! There’s now no excuse not to bring your guitar or ukulele to the festival, because you’ll be totally prepared. Just click on the Chordify button and play along with the featured songs, using our brand new embedded player, without even leaving the festival web page.
This kickass three day festival will be held from July 15 to 17 and we’re pretty stoked. As you may recall, we hosted a stage with our friends from Welcome to the Village during Eurosonic, the biggest music showcase festival in Europe. And we’ll be teaming up with WttV again, to bring you more festival exclusives.
Village Sessions and artist portraits and Welcome To To The Village Channel
Our friends from InDeKringloop (IDK), will be filming a couple of intimate live sessions with a handful of the awesome artists playing at the festival. You’ve probably already seen IDK in action, but if not, check out one of our sessions from last year’s Welcome to the Village, with Blood Red Shoes and their song “Lost Kids.”

Can’t make it to the festival? Not a problem! Wood & Wire will be filming a mini documentary with artist interviews, very much like our own Backstage interviews, where these talented guys tell you all about how they learned to play their instruments.
And of course we’ve also got our special Welcome to the Village Chordify Channel, where you can discover some of the amazing songs of the different acts playing at the festival.

Welcome to the Village
For a grand total of three days, from 15-17 July 2016, Welcome to The Village 2016 will be the most beautiful little village in the Netherlands. Taking place in recreational area the Groene Ster just outside of Leeuwarden (the Netherlands), the festival is organised by a large group of young freelancers, their friends and more than 500 volunteers. Their aim is to create a melting pot of fabulous music, awesome international talent and delicious food all brought together in a streamlined and logical design. This very same recipe managed to sell out their debut festival in 2013 with 4,000 visitors and it has continued to grow since then with 6,000 and 7,500 visitors in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
The music programme is made in collaboration with the visitors, and in cooperation with organisations such as Subbacultcha, dEUS and Ticket to the Tropics. This year’s edition will feature 2ManyDJs, Alex Vargas, Black Mountain and Fresku, to name just a few. So what are you waiting for? Check it out! Grab some tickets, get the chords and play along!
