Celebrate the Easter holiday with arts

Påskfestivalen Gotland means " Easter Festival Gotland" and is an annual celebration of classical music, art and dance. It is taking place during the Easter from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday and the purpose is to share and spread the spirit of Easter to everyone through art. 

"To cross borders"

Every year we present a new theme. Our upcoming theme will be "to cross borders". We want to create a space of reflection and community, a bridge between different forms of art as well as different people. We are gathering artists from all over Gotland, Sweden and also from abroad. Professional artists and young talents will meet and perform all over Gotland. See our program for more information. It will be updated continuously. 


Enjoy classical music performed by well-known, established artists as well as by shooting stars and the next generation of musicians. We invite musicians from all over the world to take part and to perform their work all over the island of Gotland.


Art is a very important part of our cultural growth and every year we challenge our artists to interpret our annual theme in various artforms. We arrange galleries and exhibitions at different locations around the island associated with our concerts and events.


Young and experienced dancers greats the audience on different stages around Gotland during our festival. With their movements, they interpret our current theme in their own unique way, thereby connecting the visual and the musical experience.
