Sweden's most musically adventurous festival happens every summer at an abandoned iron mine. Kasia Zacharko photographed its 20th edition.
Norberg is an idyllic town of fewer than 5000 people, about two hours north of Stockholm. The other main event on its calendar is an annual gathering of Elvis impersonators.
This year, a heatwave across Europe pushed temperatures as high as 31C, allowing festivalgoers the perfect opportunity to dip in a nearby lake.

Iron Sight, AKA Isak Hansen, was recently released from two months in prison after being arrested at a May Day Antifa demonstration. His noise set felt full of anger and emotion.
With fantastic sound and huge doors that allowed the crowd to spill out, the Kraftwerk stage was the festival's main arena.
Dis Fig played a live set following the release of her album, PURGE, earlier this year.
