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.

The weekend 18-21 of September 2014, Uma Obscura will be born. Sunset Park festival will transform into the new Alternative Culture festival of northern Sweden.
A gathering of subculture people, art, music, performances and happenings. A weekend of alternative culture in focus. A simulation of the mainstream privilege. A zone where the alternative is the dominant culture.
Welcome to Umeå and Uma Obscura festival 2014.
