Thanks to all of you for having contributed to making the Jombo Festival a success!
The Jombo festival committee wishes to thank all the persons who contributed to the festival with their time, efforts and good spirit. All together we filled these two days at Delight Studios in Hammarby Sjöstad with music, dance, culture and reflection. People met, interacted and smiled all over the place. We left the festival with new experiences and friends.
