About Norbergfestival 2024

Norbergfestival is a 25-year-running festival, held on the abandoned iron mine site of Mimerlaven in Norberg, Sweden.

Nestled in the former mining town of Norberg, Sweden, Norbergfestival stands as a testament to experimental artistic works, transforming the abandoned iron mine site of Mimerlaven during three days in July. The carefully curated lineup allows for a wide range of experimental music genres, sound, performing and visual arts to merge, and performances with international artists to stand alongside local acts.

By the late 1950's, Norberg's Mimerlaven became the centerpiece as the largest ore extraction facility in the region. Reaching 64 metres above ground and stretching far beneath, it was the connecting node for an entire industrial sector, now an annual sanctuary for sound art - offering a unique reverberating space. Existing side-by side with Mimerlaven is the club-oriented programme with live and DJ acts at the former power station Kraftcentralen and faster paced genre-amalgated dance music at the outdoor 303 stage.

Volunteering at the festival

Norbergfestival is made possible by a fantastic volunteer team, many returning each year. Collectively, we produce a lot of what makes the festival great on a volunteer basis. This includes everything from curating and booking the festival program to constructing the festival area in the week leading up to the event.

We're incredibly grateful for everyone's hard work, and we want to make sure that every volunteer has the best possible experience. We're particularly interested in providing access to knowledge in sound technology, lighting, and construction to people who wouldn't normally have the chance to learn about these areas. We also encourage sharing knowledge between volunteers.

We're welcoming volunteers for media and photography work, artist care, coordinating festival build-up and takedown, working with festival infrastructure, assisting with the coordination of bar and food areas, and more. If you're interested in volunteering, please sign up and read more here.
