Theres no organization, no schedule, no events, few spectators. Its not a festival. Its just Fano an annual gathering of many thousands of kite makers and fliers, mostly European, on nine miles of Danish hard sand beach during a week in June. Vehicles can be driven right out onto the sand and there they are used as staging points as fliers fly their kites, meet friends, and party. An island in the North Sea, Fano is well north (on a level with Copenhagen), so the sun doesnt really set in the summer and flying goes on around the clock.
