Frida Hyvönen

Mystic northern Swedish singer-songwriter Frida Hyvönen is fast becoming one of that select group of artists that needs no introduction.

So important is Hyvönen, along with rock colleagues Sahara Hotnights, to her home village of Robertsfors in Sweden's far north, that there are calls for her image to welcome visitors instead of the more conventional "Welcome, please drive carefully" sign.

Hyvönen made her breakthrough with the sublime "Until Death Comes" in 2005. Her third studio album, "Silence is Wild", released in 2008, has been given a standing ovation by the critics.

Price: 295 kronor

Time: Saturday April 18th, 8pm

Tickets: Frida Hyvönen Tickets

Location: Storan, Kungsparken 1

Price: 200 kronor

Time: Saturday April 18th, 10pm

Tickets: The Only Ones Tickets

More Information: Kulturbolaget

Time: Wednesday April 22nd, 7pm

Tickets: Debaser Malmö

Location: Debaser, Norra Parkgatan 2

More Information: El Perro Del Mar at Debaser
