Are the city slickers taking over? One of Sweden's best-loved festivals is moving north - founded in 1986, the Hultsfred festival is moving from its roots in Småland to Stockholm county.

Some say this is all about people wanting to get away from muddy fields and tents. But Radio Sweden interviewed Ola Broquist, one of the founders of rival festival Way Out West, in the city of Gothenburg, who says that the new Hultsfred Stockholm festival will actually be more out in the wilderness than it was before.
