Bråvalla Festival, a new Swedish festival placed on a old military airfield on the outskirts of a town called Norrköping. The city is situated by the mouth of the river Motala ström, at Bråviken, an inlet of the Baltic Sea. Water power from the Motala ström and the good harbour were factors that facilitated the rapid growth of this once industrial city, known for its textile industry. It has several nicknames and the more famous ones are: Sweden's Manchester and Peking.

The city has a large musical and theatre heritage as well as the previously mentioned industrial past as well as the birthplace of a Noble Prize winner in Physics and a double Olympic gold medallist in Alpine skiing, so it has the heritage and pedigree for sure.

The Festival
The Bråvalla Festival, aptly named after the airfield on which it will be held. The airfield is also known, locally, by it's military code which is F13, but it has been closed since a number of years. So this could very well a new beginning of a great tradition. The festival is organised by FKP Scorpio Sweden, which is also the organizer of Getaway Rock Festival, the Hultsfred Festival and other concerts all year round.
