Urkult is a folk festival, a meeting place and a source of booming inspiration

Every year for three days – people from all over the world arrive in Näsåker to share and celebrate different cultures, music and crafts among the trees above the beautiful river Nämforsen. The festival program, apart from the concerts, include workshops, poetry slam, children’s theatre and a wide range of both exciting & educational activities for both children and adults. Local craftsmen and organic food are trusty features at Urkults market and festival area.

In the heart of the festival is an organic amphitheater grown and designed out of the ground framed by steep pine covered hillsides that are characteristic for the landscape along the river. Urkult is known for its opening ceremony the Night of Fire – a unique performance that is created by different artists every year. Often the performance include drums, song or instrumental music, dancing and storytelling – and is always centered around the element fire.

Do as people have done for thousands of years and experience this place for yourself!
