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 up to 10 000 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 festival was first established in 1995, and has always stood out as an alternative on the festival scene, with the ambition to make the festival happen in solidarity with human beings and nature. Food and drinks sold inside the festival area is organic, locally and ethically produced, as far as possible.

The music focus is on folk and world music with a goal to provide a interesting program for people of different ages and tastes. We also provide courses, workshops, seminars and a market place.

Children are important and have a central place at Urkult, and therefore we we arrange a lot of activities for children, including circus workshop, puppetry show and a special playground located in the centre of the festival area.
