Folk fest at Nämforsen

As the ravens fly and darkness returns to 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 some 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, hippie-style world music festival that’s been around since 1995.
