Arvika Festival Ist weekend of July

Floods of people arrived via the train.  Too shocked to take a picture, we saw a dreadlocked man wearing a skimpy tarzan speedo, with his pocket book in a denim pants pocket ducktaped to his leg.  The colors, the piercings, the clothing choices....

Total craziness.  22,500 extra people took over Arvika.  Population of Arvika is 14,00.  All open fields; school and soccer were taken over by tents and campers.  The System (alchol) sold out of items.  There were two liters of gin left on the shelf.   The amount of garbage was phenomenal.  We could hear DePeche Mode 1 km away.  People from all over Europe were there.  We failed in a photo essay, however, I did take these two photos.  I apologize for the obscenity.
