De Plattfööt, (German pronun­cia­tion: [ deː platfœt œt])founded 1979, are a folk music-duo from the German State of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, with the two singer-songwriters and guitar players Peter Wilke and Klaus Lass.

Their musical style is a mix of folk music, blues and country and western, and they sing most of their humorous songs in Low German. Their most famous hits are "Disco up'n Dörp", "Fru Püttelkow ut Hagenow", and "De Isenbahnboomupundaldreier" ("The Railroad crossing-bar-up-and-down-turner").

De Plattfööt means The Flatfeet in Low German. They hold true to their motto: "Kort is dien Leben un lang’ büst du dod. Minsch, blot nich argern, ne, lachen deit good!" ("Short is your life and long you are dead. Man, do not worry, no, laughing is good!"), Rudolf Tarnow.
