The purpose of Dödsmässa
The purpose of the association is to arrange small-scale closed private music and related
artistic events. The core of the association and invited constellations* work together with
activities around the events. The focus of the events is on so-called underground metal and
dark ambient, but other genres and performances may occur. We like to see smaller local
performing constellations* but are also open for other national and international performers
in the future. The purpose is also for like-minded people to meet, but there should be
openness for new interested people to join the association to discover the "art form" of
* other word for bands or artists
The goals of Dödsmässa
The goals of the association are that the events and other things that are arranged should
go at least break even financially and the membership fees cover our expenses like rent and
related costs. There is no profit motive, all money should go to the events. Should there be a
surplus after all expenses have been covered, these must be included in future events. The
goal is also to work for a live music scene in the above mentioned genres. A long-term goal is
to arrange a multi-day festival.

the situation right now. We also do not have time with bands that do not fit our concept
either. But otherwise you are very welcome to contact us to see if it is possible to make a
