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. This year all the artists (around 40 musicians, dancers, performers, poets, visual artists) was revealed only 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.

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