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.
