In 2020 everything was turned upside-down. But we will be back!
Welcome to the website for Gothenburg Culture Festival!
When it’s time for the festival, you will be able to read all kinds of useful things here – take part in the program, find information that can be useful before your visit, on-site at the festival, and more. Until then, you can, for example, read about our extensive work with various sustainability issues. We look forward to seeing you at the next festival!

About the festival
Gothenburg Culture Festival invests heavily in minimizing its environmental impact
Festivals that gather a large number of visitors have historically led to considerable consumption of disposable items and also a large amount of waste that is often not sorted at source. For GCF, sustainability work has long been the focus, but now the festival is raising the bar in ecological sustainability, by investing in being virtually waste-free within a few years. This is done, among other things, through the project Waste-Free Festivals, a collaboration with the City of Gothenburg’s Recycling and Water Department, with partial funding from the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (Naturvårdsverket) and The Swedish Waste Management Association (Avfall Sverige). The project includes a new deposit system for plates and cutlery, with the aim of largely removing the need for disposable items when serving food at festivals and similar events.
Gothenburg Culture Festival is carried out by Göteborg & Co, on behalf of the City of Gothenburg, with the support of Näringslivsgruppen Göteborg & Co. The festival is also funded together with our fantastic partners.
