For the last 11 years a festival called Urkult has been held in a small
village called Näsåker in the north of Sweden. The village, and the festival
ground, is situated along Ångermanälven (the Ångerman River). Having regreted
not going last year I just had to go this year. Here are some photos from the
weekend of the 11th Urkult.
I arrived late on Thursday evening and put up my tent (around 10 PM). There
was no midsummer sun, but it was still light. My friend
"Wabbit" helped me (stuck to the right front pole). Thursdays are
Fire Night (eldnatta), which I missed as I fell asleep in the car.
The next day "we" (I and "Wabbit" in my pocket) went and viewed the
stone carvings at Nämforsen. The carvings are
situated on islands in the river, which run quite wild when let out of the hydro
Next on the agenda was entering the festival
grounds of Urkult. No, this door was only for show. :-) The
main stage where for more known groups, which
"Wabbit" and I walked around.
The Sun Stage (solscenen) was used for less known
groups, but not less interesting. Friday was a bit wet...
... but Saturday became a very nice day for me
and "Wabbit". Even the Sun
Stage was worth it's name. :-)
