I have heard of the great festivals in Uppsala throughout the year.
Is the biggest Valborg?
What are the smaller ones that might not be listed on places like wikitravel.
Don't be shy, I love trying everything from hippi mud festivals to hardcore techno parties to surfing in the Norwegian Sea. Just give me a good reason to be interested and I will knock it up on my calendar and I might see YOU there!
Thanks :) Clay
Well Valborg is the undisputed king of Uppsala festivals and should not be missed. Apart from that there aren't too many more in my experience, there is Midsommer in Uppsala like the rest of the country but you would probably want to head further north for that one. Its best to watch the student nations for interesting festival like stuff, though you need to be a student to get into them.
There are forest parties in the outskirts of town from time to time where people party in the woods to trance and psytrance, but you really need to know the right people for those ones. I also heard of this trance festival that happens on a big ferry that happens over a weekend going to and from Stockholm which sounds cool. Hope some of that helps! almost 10 years ago
