During the carnival days, Lundagård is transformed into a large carnival area with tent entertainment, raffle booths, student spex, radio broadcasts, artists and of course food and drinks. And it does not end there. The incredible carnival parade also goes through the streets of Lund and spreads carnivalistic joy to the several hundred thousand visitors.

Lundakarnevalen is arranged every four years by the students of Lund and this year it will be extra maxed out as there are a record number of karnevalister who have committed themselves to organizing the most catastrophic carnival ever! As many as 7,445 excited karnevalister will make the 2022 carnival go down in history as the largest carnival ever.

​​This year's carnival theme is Katastrofalkarneval! Sometimes things do not turn out quite as planned, in everyday life, at school and in other contexts. Lundakarnevalen 2022 will celebrate these misunderstandings, calamities and faux pas. We think that all occasions of life are worth celebrating and in the Lundakarneval 2022 we will do it together on 20th-22nd May.

More information about the traffic situation during the carnival days can be found at You can also bike to the carnival, but the hands down best way to get to the area is by foot!

But how does the Lundakarneval come about? Well, thanks to all 31 fantastic sections that (just like every four years) have created everything from scratch. All sections consist of a management group of 8-10 people who together with their carnivalists work hard to ensure that all visitors have as much fun as possible at the Katastrofalkarneval.
