What is Kulturnatta?

The 2020 Kulturnatta will take place on Friday 23rd October.

For nearly 30 years at the break of autumn – there has been a festival in Gothenburg called Kulturnatta (Culture Night). A night when the entire city is buzzing and brewing with cultural events of every kind. Here you can explore a broad mix of activities – everything from readings and theater plays to dance battles and workshops. Anything can happen at Kulturnatta!

It is a festival by everyone, for everyone. Anyone is welcome to organize an event at Kulturnatta. There are no fees. Not for the organizers, nor the visitors. Kulturnatta does not award financial support to participants, each organizer funds their own events. Therefore, every organizer is fully responsible for their own program – with their own stages, arenas, technical systems, permissions etc.

But what does Kulturnatta offer the organizers?
We make sure to communicate the events and the entire program to the public via billboards, approach signs, online, PR activities, media contacts and such. We also administrate, and as far as it is possible, help our organizers to create their event.

Come join us for the night of Kulturnatta. Either as a visitor or an organizer. Everyone is welcome!
