Volt – the festival for electronic music
Uppsala Konsert & Kongress
Saturday, June 8th 2013
Volt is Sweden’s leading festival for electronic music. On June 8th 2013, Volt is celebrating its fifth anniversary.
For the fifth year running, Uppsala Konsert & Kongress will be occupied by electronic beats as The Volt Festival enters the building. As in previous years, a long list of Swedish and international electronic music acts will be presented.
Volt 2013 presents electronic music in its many forms: from focused, minimalist house and techno to rock hard dubstep, humming ambient and genre-defying experiments.
Volt is much more than a music festival celebrating electronic music. Visitors to Volt are also presented with video art and interactive installations occupying the borderland between man and machine, digital and analog.

Uppsala Konsert & Kongress
A venue created for meetings and music</strong>
Uppsala Konsert & Kongress is a multifunctional cultural venue with world class design and acoustics. The building’s impressive architectural structure gives it a distinctive personality that is modern and dynamic. With eight floors and 14 600 square meters of space, it is an ideal venue for Volt and music in general, as well as conferences, large congresses and small meetings.
Volt plans to utilize Uppsala Konsert & Kongress’s beautiful, futuristic spaces to the max. Installations are waiting to be found in unexpected places. Relaxing electronica and a spectacular view of Uppsala can be found on the sixth floor at the sky bar. Meanwhile, experimental musicians challenge listeners in the smaller venues and bigger dance-friendly acts make sure that sweat is dripping on the larger dance floors. Music will pump out of every corner as the evening fades into summer night.
