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.
