Deca Disco:

24:hours and T invite Hercules and Love Affair from the hip New York label DFA for a unique DJ set. The band's sweaty combination of Chicago house, glitzy electronic disco and "fists in the air" makes its debut in Sweden at one of Stockholm's best dance floors.

Safety Twee:

Indie pop non stop! Legendary pop band Ladybug Transistor and the critically acclaimed debutant My Brightest Diamond, both from Brooklyn, play live at Lava while Fritz's Corner becomes a club night open to all.

Luxury Lobby:

Four clubs show the different sides of electronic music and take turns hosting Saturdays at Nordic Light Hotel's delightful bar. Socially Hazardous is arranging the opening night with electronica, house and techno straight from the underworld. Galleri Kleerup maximizes the club experience with visuals and art.

Sugar Show:

Hootchy Kootchy celebrates its two year anniversary with a show in the best Carmen Miranda-style. Total sugar shock with stylish, sugary sweets from Gateau Chocolat, the lemon queen and gender bender Leroi the Girl Boi, seductive Sugar Kane and the club's own Swiss meringue, The Hootchy Kootchy Hussies. Take your hottest banana hat with you and come party with the tropical beauties at Södra Teatern. If you want to skip the show, entrance costs 100 kronor.

Greek Rave:

It's time to surrender to a whole night full of dance, sweat and snacks at club NaxXxOs. The guests are Patrick Crotty, Chrystelle, and The Captain who is one of New York's best party planners. FInd out for yourself how good it can be when he

stands by the DJ booth and if you are one of the first guests you will get a bottle of Brahma.

Saturday hip hop:

B-Line play at Hotel Rival on Mariatorget. Red wine, cold beer, and drinks in the company of good friends to the accompaniment of the best hip hop mix from Sam and Moon Suck.

Valborg Love:

It's Valborg and Grodan is arranging a crash party. The lower floor will be jam-packed with a young all star feeling as the crazily talented Risky Bizniz and the wonder kids from Boeoes Kaelstigen join Pacemaker, Serato, DJ-Controller and cd in the DJ booth. It will be rock hard, crazy, well-mixed and an altogether fantastic dance experience.

Send In The Clowns and Windup Sthlm will be on the top floor. Yes, you heard right. Stockholm's best "indie club" and its best friend provide the music. It will be full of euphoria, hands in the air and many hugs in the city's freshest bar.

The best of two worlds, on two floors. DJ equipment from the future and dance all night. Your Valborg is saved!
