About the festival

“AT LAST A CLASSICAL MUSIC FESTIVAL THAT ROCKS” – The Times
“ONE OF EUROPE´S MOST ENJOYABLE FESTIVALS” – Oliver Condy, BBC Music Magazine

Vinterfest

Mora, Orsa & Älvdalen, Sweden

Over the course of four days in February, music will pour out of various conference halls over a glistening winter Dalarna. People journey from different locations to experience the festival that BBC Music Magazine calls ”One of Europe’s most enjoyable festivals” and that has been compared with Gidon Kremer’s historic Lockenhaus Festival in Frankfurter Allgemeine. A festival that focuses on small-scale, relaxed and intimate aspects. A true musical festival during which Ovansiljan is graced with the presence of world-renown artists.

The fact that the festival takes place in the middle of Dalarna’s stunning countryside is an added bonus much appreciated by both local and foreign visitors. The potential to enjoy a pleasant winter holiday alongside first-class musical performances is a further attraction.

Tickets are sold from 1 November and are easily purchased by contacting Siljan Tourism, www.siljan.se tel:+46 248 79 72 00. They will also help you with travels and accomodation. Enjoy close encounters with the stars of chamber music right in the centre of the wonderful winter.

Vinterfest is as much about celebrating local heroes as it is about music – ice sculptures adorn the stages and buckets of hot blueberry soup (the local speciality) are on tap. Venues include churches, barns, and even the local petrol station. Don’t forget to put your thermals on – temperatures can plunge to a bone-chilling -30 degrees Celsius. [...]
