The Stockholm Folk Festival takes place August 7-8 this year, at Hesselby Slott, a 17th century castle in Stockholm, Sweden. The castle and grounds serve as a hotel and conference center, hosting the festival every year.

Excerpt from the festival website (translated from Swedish):

Here at Hesselby Castle, meet music lovers of all kinds in an environment where even Carl Michael Bellman spent and played music around the mid-1700s.

Over three days, this is the venue for a spectacular summer festival (for) world music and folk rock, blues, Irish and many other styles and genres.”…

“Performances take place at five different stages – two outdoor stages in the park, a dance floor, the castle’s terrace with a large music & restaurant tent…”… “Bailey is the heart of (a) fiddler meeting where everyone is invited to jam.”

…”Bring your instrument or just your voice and join in folk music festival, jam with the traditional Irish and early bluegrass music (called Old Time Music) in the restaurant tent on the terrace. We also offer a wide range of different and unique music experiences. “
