Arvikafestivalen - en fröjd i svart - en kritisk diskursanalys av artiklar om Arvikafestivalen i Dagens Nyheter
2004 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

Arvikafestivalen is a music festival that takes place once every year in Arvika, Sweden. Since its start in 1992, the festival has grown more and more each year, in the number of visitors as well as in the number of acts. At the same time very few of the music festivals in larger cities have survived. My interest in what a major city media writes about such a rural phenomenon as Arvikafestivalen was therefore an important starting point for this essay. My purpose for this examination was to, from a critical discourse analysis perspective, study how Arvikafestivalen is being described in Dagens Nyheter, the largest morning newspaper in Sweden. Thus, the question problem is: How is Arvikafestivalen being described in Dagens Nyheter? Are there any patterns regarding contents and form in the articles written, and if so, what do the patterns look like? To answer this question all articles that in one way or another has to do with Arvikafestivalen have been analysed. The results of the examination show that Arvikafestivalen is being positively described in Dagens Nyheter. Another noticeable matter is that Arvikafestivalen frequently is being referred to as the obvious and only bolthole for the Gothic- and Synthesizer cultures.
