NB! This year, all concerts will be held outside in the Park. The Head Start will be held at Kasnäs (outdoor terrace with a roof) and the final concert in Söderlångvik (indoors).
The festival area is located right in the centre of Dalsbruk. Here you will find the Jazz Street, the Park, Bio Pony, the old Foundry, the library and the old Mechanical Workshop. The church is located within a short walking distance, but you need a mode of transport to get to Kasnäs, Söderlångvik and Bjärkas. The concert venues are carefully selected to highlight the history and beauty of the old iron works village. The stages in the Park and on the Jazz Street are located outside. The stage and seats in Kasnäs are outside but covered by a roof. NB! It is not allowed to bring your own alcoholic beverages to the Park.
Almost all of our concert venues are accessible. Personal assistants have free entrance to all of our concerts.
There is a First Aid group available at the festival the entire weekend. The First Aid tent can be found in the Park. In case of emergency, call 112.
