Bobfest is a conference that will take place in Linkoping, Sweden, 23-25 March 2001. The idea is that young people can meet, get to know eachother and hear some great teaching from Pastor Bob Beeman, USA. We wish Bobfest to be an antipole to all the darkness and negativity there is in the world today, and show the way to a better life without drugs and violence.

Bobfest is also a festival where the music is of great importance. Hardrock/metal/hardcore bands from around Scandinavia and even from the US make this festival a great opportunity for music lovers from all countries to enjoy the best hard music!
Of course you are welcome to join the concerts without attending the conference, but we believe Bob has something to say to you even if you're not a Christian.

Bobfest was first arranged in March 1999 and has now become an annual event. Bobfest 2001 will be the third festival and our goal is to make it the best Bobfest yet! A lot of things has changed since last year, hopefully for the better.
