Things don’t always go according to plan. The 2022 Lund Carnival celebrates misunderstandings, calamities and faux pas with an appropriately named Catastrophic Carnival.

Times and admission
The carnival area is open from Friday 20 May at 12:00 until Sunday 22 May 23:59. You will be able to buy admission at the entrance for SEK 80 (children up to the age of 6 years enter for free). If you want to leave the area and return later, a new ticket is required, unless you buy the three-day ticket which costs SEK 215.

On Friday, the inauguration starts at 13:00, with free admission for the first hour.

If you want to see some of the main events, they cost extra.

The tombola stalls and the tents
10 tombola stalls, such as #FreeBritney, Catastrophe Oscars and Tegnell's Angels, will be open until late. Pay with "karnedaler" and play.

There are 18 different tents with names such as Prisoner's Dilemma, Bamba Run and Vegas Wedding.
Read more on the Lundakarneval website under the Events tab.
The "karnedal" is the world’s most catastrophic currency used to have fun in the tombola stalls, tents and at the various smaller entertainment activities. Karnedaler can be purchased for SEK 25 each, or even better: 5 karnedaler for SEK 111. You can find them at one of the many stalls in the carnival area. This year’s catastrophic coins have been minted in metal with a completely new and unique design!
