DFDF (Das Frühlingsfest der Filksmusik) is a filk convention held in Bad Salzdetfurth, Germany in late spring or early summer. Unlike FilkContinental, it is held in a hotel rather than a youth hostel, and so far it has had only European guests. The first DFDF was held in 2009, growing out of the Filky Days relaxacon. The name is a play on Das Frühlingsfest der Volksmusik, a large German folk festival.

The founders include Steve Macdonald.
