Experimental Music Festival

A sanctuary for experimental minds and bodies in motion.

There’s a common misconception that the reactionary forces now sweeping Europe and Sweden don’t really care about culture. On the contrary, art, music, literature and the performing arts have historically always been of great importance to authoritarian movements. These expressions of human imagination and curiosity must be tamed and transformed into something wholesome and useful. Cost-efficient and inoffensive, at the very least.

Yeah, we’re not really any of that. And for that very reason, we’ll keep doing this festival in in Malmö for as long as we’re physically able. The effects of gentrification and cultural conformity have struck this city like a plague. But there are still breeding grounds for creativity and artistic dreams. Safe havens for freaks and eccentrics. And once a year we roll out Intonal for their sake. For our sake. An example of what still can be achieved in this city if you don’t listen to sense.

Join us and tell your grandkids what we did together. There’s a good chance they wont believe you.


Intonal is an annual festival for experimental and electronic music that has been held in Malmö, Sweden since 2015. The focus of the festival is to offer an international programme of experimental and electronic music covering a wide range of genres, subgenres and unique expressions. Besides established artists within the electronic avant garde and acts bordering towards sound art, a hefty club oriented programme will also present DJs acting within an innovative new scene for dance music. Parallel to this there is also a number of installation exhibitions and artist talks. Out of tradition, a handful of events on the programme will be open to the public and free of entrance.

Intonal 2020 is organized by Inkonst and Inter Arts Center in Malmö, Sweden in collaboration with Mutek, Kontra-Musik, Insomnia, Malmö Konsthall, Malmö Live, S:t Johannes Church/The Swedish Church Malmö, The Museum of Movements, ICAS, UpNode Network, The North West Passage Project, Goethe-Institut Schweden, Institut Francais de Suède, with support by The City of Malmö, Region Skåne, The Swedish Arts Council, The Nordic Council of Ministers, Puls/The Nordic Culture Fund, The Government of Quebec.
