Norrland Gabber Crew is the formless anti-project of two cousins residing in the municipalities Sollefteå and Sundsvall.
As teenagers in the mid-00's they began experimenting with different electronic subgenres in caffeine, snus and folk-beer fueled late night-endurers with noisy nicotine-colored stationary computers and cracked VSTi's.
With heavy influences from the 90's rave-scene they have created their own blend that reflects the lifestyles and culture of growing up in a small town where the only things left is the depleted pine forests, bass boosted EPA-tractors and fuel guzzling cruisers (often a volvo 240).
Olle Norberg (1917-2000) was a woodcarver and sculptor, active in Norberg for most of his life. His work, which in many cases depicts familiar environments and events from the town, can be seen in the municipality session hall, the bus square and the Norberg church. Olle Norberg participates in this year's visual arts program with the wooden relief he made in 1974 for the new Folkets Hus in Norberg, now the city library. The relief depicts the dramatic miners' strike in Norberg in 1891-92.

Club U-Haul is a club created by three friends Wekesa, Trabelsi, and Suinner. The club's purpose is to serve its community, to make you feel free and enjoy and dance in a revolutionary way. The club started from two needs: to hear amapiano and to be a lesbian in a club.
DJ Wekesa is a well-known DJ and dancer from Helsinki, who plays dancehall, hip hop, rnb, afrobeat and amapiano. She has been playing in festivals like Flow Festival and Ruisrock and has given her input to the Helsinki club scene by producing events like Mellow Yellow Club and Club U-Haul.
The Soft Collective is dedicated to making better cultural spaces and evoking and processing emotions with music as their mediator. Pehmee whispers, sings and dives where music feels and creates atmospheres with soundscapes together with the DJ. The Soft Collective has been doing MCing since 2021 and it has become an important part for us to express and create spaces.
At Club U-Haul our priority, on top of creating GREAT parties with bomb music, is to make sure we emphasize safety and safer club experiences, especially for marginalized people. Club U-Haul is a request to commit to good vibes, safer party spaces, and to revolutionary dancefloors. We encourage people to mind the space they take if they attend our party outside of marginalized identities.
Valentina Magaletti is a drummer, composer, and percussionist who strategically enriches a folkloristic and eclectic palette through endless listening and experimentation with new materials and sounds. She has performed and co-written with many artists including Nicolas Jaar, Jandek, Helm, Raime, Graham Lewis (Wire, Dome), Tightpaul Sandra (Coil, Spiritualized, Julian Cope), Thurston Moore, Bat for Lashes, and many more. In her current project, Vanishing Twin (Fire Records) she has a more conventional jazz approach that finds its escape in the drone/field recordings of the percussive approach in her other main experimental/avant-garde duo Tomaga. Valentina was born in Bari, Italy, and is based in London. Valentina Magaletti will perform in Mimerlaven at Norbergfestival 2023.

Vanligt Folk is a music group based in Sweden and Norway. Vanligt Folk fancy regression rather than stupidity, or similar ideals analog to growth. Vanligt Folk are inspired by old and new - good and bad events. The Gothenburg group’s name can be translated to ’common people’ and they make use of primitive electronics, drums and skewed vocals - ranging from harsh social commentary to the purely nonsensical - to create their own take on body music. Since their first release in 2013, they’ve released 4 full-length albums and a handful of EP’s (iDEAL recordings, Kontra Musik, Kess Kill etc.)
Tobias Toyberg-Frandzen is a photographer and multi-diciplinary artist based in Copenhagen. Ha has been creating digital art since 2001.
At Norbergfestival 2023, Vanligt Folk & Tobias Toyberg Frandzen will present their piece “Dischorealism”.
“Dischorealism was initially intended to be a conceptual work about ”milk” but we quickly got tired of the idea and the result was partly something completely different. Nevertheless, partly the same in the sense of sucking the life out of somebody, exploiting and overconsuming trust in any form. Dischorealism explores the cost of dual nature and circulates around themes such as friendship, sex, violence and drug abuse.
Dischorealism is IMAGE and SOUND and a collaboration between Vanligt Folk and videoartist Tobias Toyberg.
Dischorealism will be performed live exclusively at Intonal /Malmö, Ekko/Bergen, Radar/Aarhus and at the Nordberg festival during spring/summer -23.”
Witch Club Satan is a feminist black metal performance in four acts – a musical dramatic ritual with unknown consequences.
Witch Club Satan will wake you up with the primal scream that’s been building up inside us. The end goal is change – you will never be the same.
In this performance, Victoria Røising (bass), Johanna Holt Kleive (drums) and Nikoline Spjelkavik (guitar) cultivate the theatricality of black metal, and draw the traditional black metal expression in a divine feminine direction.
Witch Club Satan has an obvious feminist agenda, and highlights a promising feminine counterpart to black metal's many male archetypes: the "witch".
"Witches" are both the people who historically were labeled as witches during the witch trials, those who call themselves witches for various reasons, or women with political power who are labeled as witches. It is a folkloric figure, a feminist symbol and a swear word. Inspired by the activists of W.I.T.C.H. (Women's International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell), the trio will harness the witch's potential in a performative setting, using spells and curses, healing and damning. Witch Club Satan plays up to new notes: the witch of today can inspire us to get to know nature and the nature within ourselves.
The booking of Witch Club Satan is made in collaboration with Inland Stockholm.
