Subkult Festivalen 2018 in Trollhättan, Sweden

Omg, did I even tell you that we went to Subkult? Let me fix that!
The Nick Cave show was last wednesday, so we immediately went home after since we were going to drive to Sweden the next morning. I don't think I even slept at all that night, so when Simen woke up, we started driving. We drove across the entire country with rain following us.

This is where we spent the night, a very beautiful place! Luckily the next day it was beautiful weather, and really hot sitting in the car with the skirt I'm wearing in the photo above! From where we stayed to Trollhättan it was a little over 2 hours to drive. We were super excited the entire way! We listened to The Mission and Extize (hilarious) while I texted with those who were already there.

We stayed at this cute little place called Spirans. We got there before check-in time, but they were really nice and let us check in by phone. We got ready, went into the city centre, grabbed some food, and then off to the festival!
When we got in, I saw Qugoria and we gave each other a big hug. We met on Amino (and FIY, I just uninstalled that, so I'm not there anymore), and when she saw that I was going to Subkult, she messaged me, and we've been talking basically every day since. Now we finally got to meet in person! Sadly for her I was wearing super tall shoes, so I was taller than her, hahahah. We also met Robin, who's also short, so we took off our shoes to measure heights, and that's how that photo at the top happened. Oh, and a photographer jumped in too, so he took these:

After that I think we sat down and had a few drinks. We met so many nice people, even some that we had seen before at WGT and even Instagram, who I had no idea were swedish, hahahah. What is really nice is that since we're norwegian, we can communicate with swedes without a problem. Me and Simen do speak regional dialects, that might confuse swedes sometimes, but I can understand most swedes without a problem - even people from Skåne (Scania), who are reputed to have an unintelligible dialect. Robin for example speaks like that. But he agreed with me that Skåne dialect is basically just the swedish version of my own Bergen dialect, haha! They by the way speak like that because Skåne used to be a part of Denmark (you might have heard of the underwater tunnel + Öresund bridge between Copenhagen / København and Malmö). So there, some fun facts for you! And back to the scheduled program!

And with that, the first day of the festival was over. We only bought a daypass for friday, cause we weren't really interested in the bands on the saturday, plus.. money, haha. But it wasn't over yet!

We went to Qugoria's hotel room and picked up her and James, then went to an art exhibit that was happening at the same time as the festival. Malin actually had some art there! There were so many amazing artists featured. Click here to go to the website! After that we grabbed some food - Me and Simen got a little obsessed with Max, a swedish burger chain. While we ordered I got hug-attacked from Adora, who had screamed so much the day before that she had lost her voice! Hilarious.
Then it was off to the victorian picnic!

The sweetest welcome gift.
People also got melon slices later on!

The only selfie I took. So let's borrow other people's photos!

This is the best photo ever taken.
I don't remember what Robin said!

Another great photo Qugoria snapped of me.

Love you! <3

Took a little group photo before me and Simen left.

It was so nice meeting everyone! Swedes are the sweetest. Hope I get to see everyone again!
Then me and Simen undressed a little, got in the car, and headed towards the border. But first, shopping! At the shopping centers close to the border TONS of norwegians shop, cause Sweden is often A LOT cheaper than Norway. So we bought some food, drinks and tobacco before we crossed the border. We spent the night at Simen's half sister's, and I fell asleep straight after dinner. And the morning after we drove home again. So sad! But the memories will keep me going.

Check out Simon's video from the festival!


  1. You seem to have had a really good time, I love your outfits!

  2. A festival within driving distance! I will make sure to put this on my callander for next yeaar.

    1. Do it! If we can drive there from Bergen, others can too xD I just hope the festival survives! It's pretty small


Make my day!
