About the Järnsvenskan festival

Swedens first Jugger tournament has seen first light in 2013, at the Metallsvenskan music festival in Örebro, Sweden, organized by the sports club Järnboås IF. It then became Järnsvenskan through both an international Jugger tournament at Finnsjöstrand, a beautiful place in the small village of Järnboås, and Metallsvenskan, where Jugger has been presented every year since.
We received unparalleled interest by the Jugger community, with Germany, Ireland, Latvia and even USA and Australia battling it out with Swedish Jugger teams.
In 2016, eight Swedish music bands joined in and played on the stage at Finnsjöstrand. In 2017, Järnsvenskan was host to 19 teams.
In less than a day, the Järnsvenskan 2018 festival has been overbooked by 24 teams from five different countries.

Rubenstock owl
The #Rubenstock owl created by the Irish Juggers in 2017.
This time, we prepare for something special. Ruben "the Uhu", who brought Jugger to Sweden and organized all those tournaments for his sports club Järnboås IF save in 2017, is back and wants to bring music bands on stage both Friday and Saturday, evolving Järnsvenskan into a unique combination of music festival and international Jugger tournament. The Swedish rural region of Bergslagen is the perfect place for this. We are cooperating both with Metallsvenskan's organizer Aska Productions and the festival managers Kenneth and Eva to offer a perfect music band experience.
Irish and German Juggers even baptized the tournament #Rubenstock in his honour, and Ambi design created the Rubenstock owl from an ancient animated gif Ruben used in some tutorials on Jugger.
