Other questions about the festival

Why are there so few programme items this year?
This due to the pandemic. Our goal has always been to hold the Gothenburg Culture Festival, whatever the restrictions. In order to do so safely, there are fewer programme items this year.

Will the festival look the same as normal?
No, not entirely. The Gothenburg Culture Festival will look a little different this year. We have decided to do everything we can to ensure that a festival takes place, regardless of the pandemic situation. Naturally, it will be impossible to hold a festival in the same way as before. We will not be in the usual city centre locations, but we still hope that the people of Gothenburg will see themselves in the festival’s feeling, art and culture.
