Nordanå, Skellefteå

THIS IS TRÄSTOCKFESTIVALEN

The festival Trästockfestivalen (a Swedish play on Woodstock) is a real highlight during the year for many people. It’s Sweden’s largest open (i.e. no entry fee) festival, with a great mix of acts both large and small, local and global – an opportunity to discover your new favorite music!

ARTIST

ORIGIN
Way back in the early 90's some of the local bands of Skellefteå got together to create the festival. Its first run was in 1991 and has since been a yearly event. Starting up as an alternative festival, it quickly grew in popularity, as did the local music scene. Trästockfestivalen was created by the collective force of volunteers from the local music scene and that is to this day key to it's continued existence.

CURRENT FESTIVAL
Nowadays the festival is organized by the non-profit association Kulturföreningen Mullberget (local culture organization). The members of the association, predominantly musicians who usually perform live at the festival, are doing volunteer work to make Trästockfestivalen happen.

Trästockfestivalen is nothing like many other large festivals in Sweden. It goes its own way, it always has. A mix of more established acts with a lot of alternative and new exciting music. There's no entry fee which makes it much more accessible to all. Trästockfestivalen is created by and for the grassroots. Music is central to the festival but we give room to all kinds of cultural expression.
