Norbergfestival 2017 is held July 27th – July 29th.

Norbergfestival is located at the defunct ore mine extraction site Mimerlaven, located centrally in the town of Norberg. Our stages are set up with minimal intervention in the mining facility and the adjoining power station.

Norbergfestival is run by the non-profit association Anrikningsverket.


Norbergfestival was founded in 1999 and has remained much to its core since. The festival history is rich of exclusive events of contemporary, experimental and electronic music and open encounters between artists, volunteers and visitors in Scandinavia.

For a glimpse of the past, listen to our Extracted Sounds podcast series, featuring full recorded performances from Mimerlaven.
