A warm thank you to everybody who participated! Not even a lousy weather forecast could prevent us from making another success with record attendance and many unbeatable concerts at Clandestino in Bottna. Thanks to everyone who performed, sang, danced, read, recited, showed art, cooked food, photographed, fixed the light and sound and built stages in domes, barns and on rafts; thanks Angered Theater, Noncitizen, Festivalbussen and RättBuss, and our main partners Botnik Studios, Gerlesborgsskolan and KKV. And a special thanks to all the volunteers xoxo. And to our sponsors: The Swedish Arts Council, Västra Götaland Region, Musikverket and Tanums kommun. Moreover, we can proudly announce that we have collected 27,000 to Ingen människa är illegal. Hopefully we will return again next year!

Our photographer David Márquez took about a hundred nice pictures during Clandestino Botnik, check out our archives!

We’re maximizing the dance party at Ladan (The Barn) at Clandestino Botnik by booking three of our favorite dj’s: Jaime Sevilla, straight outta Madrid’s underground scene; Gotheburg’s main tropicalia vinyl botanist, Olof Heinö, and our very own canarian one man rhythm explosion D.WattsRiot.

Camping at the horsefield

nora_botnik001Some of the closest hostels are fully booked by more than hundred of our artists. But, just as previously years, there is a camping, free of charge, at the field in direct access to the festival area. Please leave no garbage at the field that belongs to horses from the neighbourhood.

Jaime Sevilla


Jaime Sevilla (Sagunto, 1978) spelar i band sedan han var 14 år gammal. Han började vända skivor, utan att mixa, tack vare Lundamannen Jens Lowuis, som äger Delover och La Contenta i Madrid. För närvarande spelar han med Challenger!, Kiev Cuando Nieva, Los eterno, och då och då med Roldán och Lorena Álvarez y Su Banda Municipal (som för övrigt medverkade på Clandestino Festival 2012). På Botnik Studios kommer han välja några eviga spanska no-hits.



Three films will be screened during this year’s edition of Clandestino Botnik. The screenings will take place at Gerlesborgsskolan 25 and 26 July.

Is there a recipe on how fascism arises? The question is posed in the short documentary Crisis Document – A Survival Guide. In the film I Am Dublin we follow Ahmed, who lives in hiding in Sweden after fleeing from Somalia. Repository is a documentary from inside the Migration Authorities’ locked repository where people are in custody, awaiting forced deportation.
