Peace and Love Hardcore

Today we'll be passing through the town of Borlange, renouned for their annual Peace and Love Festival.   But this is not your 60's flower child folk festival.   This is Peace and Love Hardcore, with 6 days of speakers, seminars and great bands from all over the world.   Unfortunately the big music is Wednesday through Saturday and we'll be in Stockholm and then back in the states by then.

For the lucky fans who are stickin' around or traveling in for this fest, it should be a rockin' good time.   Headliners are:


Lily Allen

Patti Smith

Alice in Chains

Peace and love began as a music festival in 1999, and evolved into something much larger and more important.   They have worked over the years to combat violence and racism in Borlange and Dalerna, and have expanded to provide a meeting place for all different ages, cultures, and nationalities to meet up and rock out together.   The fest doesn't have a political or religious agenda.   Instead their purpose is to champion for democracy, human dignity and rights, sustainable development, diversity and justice.

Check out their web site for the complete line up and details.
