LINE UP 2016
The biggest city in Northern Sweden, Umeå offers a fantastic location for WS+A. The city has a long history of being progressive and sport-focused and is also home to one of Sweden’s leading universities in terms of Sports research and education. The festival is held in Väven, a new cultural hotspot where people and experiences interact (hence the name which translates to “the Weave”).
If you are travelling from outside Umeå we recommend that you stay at U&Me, an innovative self-service hotel located in the same building as the festival. U&Me offers rooms to suit all tastes and budgets and if you contact us before making your booking we can give you a discount code.
WS + A is created by passionate people for passionate people. Our goal is not to make money but to create change in society. All proceeds from the festival go to ensuring its future development and enhancing its reach. The festival is organized and run by the Girls in Sport, a charity that works to improve girls' and women's opportunities in sport and adventure sport at all levels. If you have any questions or simply want to talk to us about the festival we would be happy to hear from you! Send us a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
