Uma Obscura 2016 is now over. We would like to thank all visitors, particpating artists, performers and our crew for a wonderful weekend! We will update the site with pictures from this year as soon as they arrive from our photographer’s editing desks.
We now look towards the future and what could better suit our dreams of future Uma Obscura-festivals than this picture of Ras Bolding and miss black & miss white to inspire us to build yet another festival lineup.
We present the Club Obscura night at Balder (22-01 on Friday October 7) with KF Sub and DJ Atreyo who will take you down the nostalgia lane.
Also lots of new artists added to the Art & The Black Market section.
A lot of artists have been released for the “Art & The Black Market” section of Uma Obscura (presented in cooperation with KF Blackbird), among others: Elinda Creates, Kai Reichwaldt, Tomas Ponga and Tinker Tailor to name a few.
Yes it is official. The EBM act CRYO will do their first gig ever in Umeå at this year’s Uma Obscura festival. See them live on October 8 at the Umeå Folkets Hus venue.
Finally, tickets are out for 2016! We hereby release a limited amount of 2 day-passes for the festival, available for pre-orders to the price of 300 SEK.
We still have not released any bookings. This does not mean there are no bookings. It simply means, we are sneaky and have not yet released them! So: buy a pig in a poke and order your tickets now and you will save quite a lot compared to the one-day tickets available later. One might call this crowd-funding in a way too.
So, are you willing to take a chance on us? Then surf right onto the TICKETS page and buy one or more while they’re available!
See you in October at Uma Obscura.
The next edition of the Uma Obscura festival will be held autumn 2016 in Umeå! This has just been announced, so more info will follow.
The bookings are starting from now on, but please be patient since we need time to answer all incoming requests and to plan.
The reason the festival will not be held 2015 is that we need to gather our strength and resources and we simply need some time to rest (we have been going on for 7 years in a row counting Sunset Park festival) since this festival is done on a non profit basis. Still, there may be a few interesting happenings in autumn 2015… keep your eyes out.
And we can assure you: Uma Obscura 2016 will be a blast!
Uma Obscura 2014 is now over!
We would like to say THANK YOU for a fantastic festival to all the visitors, artists, volontary crew, crew and our partners and sponsors out there!
We will be back with updates, pictures and more.
