The 17th Kalvfestival 12-15 augusti 2021

International meeting place for the development of contemporary music

The  Kalv festival  is a yearly contemporary music festival that since its inception in 2004 has explored the world of experimental new music in the beautiful countryside south-east of Gothenburg, through show-casing interdisciplinary and pedagogical projects, work-shops as well as commissioning and staging some of the most important musical works of the last century. A feature which has placed the festival as one of the key contemporary music festivals of Sweden and integrated it socially and culturally in the local regional life.
