Hagenfesten 2016: 3-7 august!

More focus to the unpredictable!

Hagenfesten is not a festival. It is a fest.
It started because of the need of a gathering. Of thoughts, of cultural attempts, of friends, of friends of friends, of the unknown.

The basic needs for this fest were met in the family farm house located along the river of Västerdalälven in the region of Dalarna in Sweden. A barn. A pigsty. A sauna. A huge outdoor kitchen. Seven outhouses. Two härbren. What more do you need? Since the first festival in 2003, these ingredients, with the addition of a whole lot of fearless, stubborn and sturdy activism and construction work, have laid the ever changing fertile grounds for the uncontrollable meeting this fest embosom.

We still believe we are in need of a gathering. Accordingly, from the depths of our guts and genes, we herewith invite YOU to the 12th edition of Hagenfesten in Dala-Floda. New for this year is that all the artists (around 40 musicians, dancers, performers, poets, visual artists) will be revealed at the very moment of their performances. Why? Because we are tired of using names as temptations when the main attraction is a square Ferris wheel.

The food


Lena Westin – Main chef

 The food is prepared at Hagenfesten and we buy our vegetables from Wålsteds ecological farm that is located 2 km away. http://www.walstedt.se/index2.html

 To dine together is an important part of the Hagen experience, you sit down and eat and there is room for conversation.
