- Ah, you have a question?!
Q: Where do I buy my ticket?
A: Tickets for the 2013 festival are available here.
Three day tickets provides the best value for money, and it is the only ticket you can buy in advance. We only sell tickets via Simple Signup and you can only pay with credit or bank card.
To receive your festival pass, state your order number and your full name at the festival ticket entrance. The ticket entrance is open between 10.00 and 21:00 daily.
We hope that you are ok with the way we handle ticket sales this year. The reason we do it like this is simply because Norbergfestival is a small non profit organization. We need to streamline our operations and make the handling of tickets and economy doable with the resources we have at hand.
Q: Where do I buy one day tickets?
One day tickets are only sold on Saturday the 27.Th and two day tickets on Friday the 26.Th. There is no advance buying of one and two day tickets. An internet connected computer will be available for connection to Simple Signup at the festival entrance.

Q: Where it's at?
Q: I'm not made of money and I don't own a car, is there any cheap way to get there?
Q: When are you opening the campsite?
A: The camping opens on Thursday July 25th at 12:00 o'clock and we close the campsite on Sunday at 14:00.
Q: Can I bring my own gear to jam on the camp site?
A: Yes, you can and we want you to! But...
It is important that you organize it together with the others on the camp site who brought their own gear as well so that there is only one jam on the campgrounds.
The following rules apply to music in the Norbergfestival camping area 2013:
- We provide power to one music system and only allow one system to be active at a time
- The time window when you are allowed to play is from 12.00 until 22.00
- We provide power for two active speakers, a mixer and a couple of synthesizers and drum machines. We will have to cut the power if the consumption goes above 10A
The reason for these rules are that we have a very limited supply of power and have to prioritize the main stages, we also have to be respectful to the neighbours and to our fellow festival-goers.
Q: Is there a place where I can store my fancy gear?
A: Yes, we dedicated a couple of shelves in our Gearbank for visitor’s modular systems, drum machines and laptops and it won’t cost you a dime!
It’s on a first come, first served basis so when the shelves are full you will have to wait for a free shelf. Always be at the Gearbank about 30 minutes before you actually need your gear because the scheduled artists will be served first so if you’re unlucky you will have to wait for a bit before you get your stuff.
Q: Can I bring a camper or mobile home?
A: Yes you can but there is no room for it on the camping. You can however park the vehicle close to the festival area.
Q: I love camping but I'm too old, is there any alternatives to the festivals camping area?
A: Yes, here's a list and contact details for places nearby: Camping and hotels!

Q: Why is it not possible to pay cash for food and beverage?
A: You can only pay with all types of Visa and Mastercard. This is because the festival is to small to organize payment with cash.
Q: What kind of rules apply on the festival?
A: Norbergfestival is a fantastic and unique event! The combination of music that makes your feet fly high, music that gets your brain vibrating, the Mimer location in the middle of the forest and all the really nice people is just awesome. But just like everywhere else, there are some basic rules:
- No drugs except alcohol, nicotine and music
- No tagging on the buildings or the tents. Please respect the unique architecture that the nice people of Norberg allow us to use
- No violent or disturbing behavior. Don't do to others, what you don't want them to do to you
