Tickets are out for 2016!


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.

Dates are set!

UmaObscura_teaser2016 01

’Uma Obscura 2016 will be held on October 6-9 in Umeå Sweden. The main venue will be Umeå Folkets Hus.  Stay tuned for more information and tickets.

Next Uma Obscura: autumn 2016

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!

Thank you for 2014

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.

Uma Obscura will be born…

uma obscura nyhets header1
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.
