Accessibility

The Norbergfestival site is a preserved mining facility which we are grateful to gain access to. We do our best to make all venues and spaces accessible to everyone, but some areas on site have limited wheelchair access. The inside of Mimerlaven consists of several floors with no elevator, but the ground floor has full wheelchair access. All other stages are fully accessible. There is an accessible toilet on site. If you need assistance or escort to the festival, please contact us at info@norbergfestival.com and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Abandoned mining site

Please be aware that the site around Mimerlaven is a former iron mine, therefore the area of the festival site and the adjacent trotting/racing track may be contaminated land. As a safety precaution, the potentially contaminated land is covered by a layer of soil that is reinforced yearly with extra gravel, to ensure the safety of visitors. We ask visitors to refrain from digging in the ground.

African Swine Flu

The area surrounding Norberg has had cases of African Swine Flu which is completely harmless to humans but fully fatal in pigs. Currently all restrictions on activities related to the festival in Norberg town have been lifted by the authorities, but we recommend visitors to be mindful if traveling outside of Norberg, especially south towards Fagersta, that some restrictions on activities in woods and fields are in place.
