Ladies and gentlemen, we hereby invite you all to a monumental day and night in our hometown. On Walpurgis Night – April 30, 2020 – we are hosting a grand celebration in the heart of Uppsala, in the form of an intimate outdoor festival featuring bands, vendors, handicrafts, art, food and drinks; all under the banner of Watain.
Traditionally, valborgsmässoafton – Eve of the Valborg Mass – is when the Devil’s children gather in celebration; a time of fire and rapture, magic and ecstasy, Death and Rebirth. Precisely what this event of ours is intended for. Also worthy of note is that Uppsala is a city where the Valborg celebration has been kept alive all through the ages, with undiminished intensity, and the entire city usually goes haywire from early morning onwards into the night.
Watain last performed in Uppsala at the sold-out release show for The Wild Hunt, seven years ago. This will be the last opportunity to see the band in Sweden for a considerable amount of time.
Further information and additional updates will be made available over the coming weeks. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Saturday, January 11, via Tickster.
We look forward to seeing you all in Uppsala!
