Festival by Nämforsen

The time of year when the nights starts to get longer in the forests of northern Sweden, we re-light the fires that have been burning here for thousands of years. In the first weekend of August eight thousand people gather in the small village of Näsåker to enjoy music, dancing, poetry and love, in a beautiful landscape of forests, rivers and hills.

Urkult is an eco-friendly, folk and world music festival that has been around since 1995.
