See what happens day by day at the festival.

For two days, we will live in a world filled with street photography. We have put together a program that aims to meet all requirements for inspiration and personal development. This year, the majority of the speakers are internationally recognized street photographers. We are proud to present 2024’s program.
Also, remember that you yourself are a very important part of the experience. In addition to the lectures, there will be networking, mingling, and exhibitions ongoing. Networking with other street photographers and like-minded photo enthusiasts easily creates contacts for life.

The Festival location

Aftonstjärnan at Lindholmen – it doesn’t get any cooler!

This year, we’re expanding the festival with a brand new venue, the historic Aftonstjärnan at Lindholmen. A place where you’ll clearly feel the wings of history. Here you’ll find Gothenburg’s oldest cinema, which will be the site for all our lectures and photo presentations..
We will have lunch and dinner at Port Arthur Pub & Brygghus, which is only about 150 meters from Aftonstjärnan.
Transportation to Aftonstjärnan couldn’t be easier. Bus 16 and bus 31 stop at Sannegårdshamnen near Port Arthurs Pub & Brygghus. From there, it’s only 150 meters to Aftonstjärnan. You can also take the ferry from Stenpiren to Lindholmspiren and walk up to Aftonstjärnan.

Address of Aftonstjärnan:
Plåtslagaregatan 2.
