Festival Tales is the story about four young friends going to a festival together. Each of them are at a crossroads in their life, faced with different challenges. The festival offers them a much needed breathing space, but also an opportunity to see themselves in a new light, and get a push in the right direction.

Festival Tales is about having intense and fantastical festival experiences. It is about how we see the world differently, depending on what we are going through, and how our experiences can inspire us to move on. And it is about friendship, and how we share the good times as well as the hard times.

The scenario does not have a fixed plot, but is built around the festival program, from which the players choose the activities they would like to participate in. The players create the content of the scenes in a mix of improvisation, storytelling and roleplaying, switching between entertaining festival activities and quiet reflection.
