Festival Description

The Peace and Love Festival started in 1999 as a manifestation against violence and racism—In order to raise important issues, by questioning the world we live in and to raise awareness among people. The festival seeks to spread the message of diversity, solidarity and understanding.

Each year has its own theme and this year’s focus is on ‘Revolution’. Participants for the theme days so far is among others Malcolm McLaren (manager for Sex Pistols & New York Dolls among others), Leif Pagrotsky (former minister of culture in Sweden). As always, Peace & Love will be more than music and there’s gonna be a lot of dance, spoken word, street performances and more at the festival. This year the festival increases in size and will now last for three full festival days, plus three theme days!

Sweden’s elite musicians along with international musicians will perform on the stages. As a part of the festival there will be a stage with dance performances by professional dancers—with choreographies that enable the audience to feel the great power of their dance expressions. To round out the event there will be poetry, art, film, photo and information from various organizations who, like us, want to make a difference in this world.
