MIMIR TALKS PROGRAM


Our stages and areas all have Norse names. Now our seminar program has one too: Mimir Talks. Mimir is a symbol of knowledge, and mentioned in many Old Norse sources. Mimir owned the well of wisdom under the world tree Yggdrasil, and gained his wisdom by drinking from it every day. Odin sacrificed one of his eyes to drink from this well, and Heimdall pawned his hearing. Gjallarhorn and Odin’s eye are Mimir’s pawn. In a war between the gods, Mimir was decapitated. Odin preserved his head with herbs and spells, to be able to keep accessing Mimir’s wisdom.

The French illustrator David Thièrrèe has created his vision of Mimir, as a commissioned piece, done specially for this year’s seminars. Here you can see a sneakpeak of his work in process. The full piece will be revealed closer to the festival.

How far are you willing to go to aquire desired knowledge? We made it easy for you. Keep your eyes and ears, but use them well at our daily seminars, Mimir talks.

You need the festival ticket/wristband to enter the seminars
