If you think of Gothenburg's party scene as a Bermuda triangle, you get a region stretching from Vasagatan - Linnegatan - Magasinsgatan. Pin down the centre point of this wicked triangle and you end up at an old boat on the canal looking like it is about to sink. But do not be mistaken! This Friday Rio Rio will be welcoming club organisers all the way from Stockholm. Run, swim, row or paddle your way there for a night of hip-house, slow jams, soca, disco, happy hardcore and ghetto tech!
Gothenburg has always been something of a hard rock city, and this weekend, fans of bands such as Monster Magnet, NOFX and Bad Religion can go wild at Frihamnen, the hub of the Gothenburg harbour. What could be a better setting for a hard rock festival? Harsh and salty winds, Götaälvsbron as a backdrop and the smell of steel and rust from the shipyards next door…
The Magnetic Fields are a New York based indie pop band led by singer song writer/musical architect/producer/visionary Stephin Merritt. The past few albums have had a synth-pop sound, where the lyrics continue to be as important as the music. The musical arrangement is always unorthodox, experimenting with different instruments and tunes. Don't miss these bittersweet indie pop icons!
It's the time of the month when Dimitros K & Jor-el enter the little club scene at Storan. The music will be electric, heavy and deep techno tunes. Be prepared for great DJ skills, deep cuts and back spins. And count on audiovisual effects. This all adds up to a fantastic dance party! And as an extra bonus it will be free entry all night!
Club Scratch is always a good party. Sunday night features an extra special treat for all Scratch fans out there - straight from the city of angels – the ten-piece funk orchestra Breakestra! The band promises to bring ya some brand new funk, plus the timeless natural raw jams you might have witnessed live onstage before.
