This wild music festival photo series shows us the hedonistic and free-spirited world of the Gagnef Festival. Captured by Swedish photographer Felix Swensson, this almost unknown music festival gathers wild-child's and hipsters aplenty from all over Sweden to come and participate in the the underground festivities.

Located in the cattle-filled, sleepy forest city of Gagnef, north of Stockholm, the annual festival attracts 1,500 music enthusiasts who come and enjoy the calm landscape and scenic countryside -- and the catchy tunes, of course.

The Gagnef Festival is known to be a hookup of sorts for Stockholm's infamous nightlife. The people you meet at the festival are the people who are most likely to hook you up when it comes to getting on the coolest guest lists for Stockholm club nights.
