  • Description


    Our Festival is Sweden's largest free festival. For two days, live music, performance, food and other delights are served in the scenic Nordanå area in Skellefteå. As always, the festival offers both small and big artists, national and local, something for everyone.

    From starting as a local affair, the festival has grown into a great cross-cultural event in the region and throughout the country. Everything based and built on the city's youth and its commitment to music and culture.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This festival is mostly run by volunteers. The goal is to have a great time all together and to enjoy a great moment of music and arts in the North of Sweden. If you are into music you will be surrounded by lots of Swedish artists in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. It is also the opportunity for you to discover what is involved in creating and coordinating a large festival and learn plenty of skills that could be useful in the future.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It's the opportunity for volunteers who are not from Skellefteå or Sweden to discover a unique area. The city is surrounded by nature, not far from the sea. Lots of lakes to swim in, many lovely places for a yummy barbecue or to try the classic "fika" or the famous "surströmming" (for the brave). The festival is in the middle of July so you will experience the midnight sun!
