A beer brand joins forces with the ever hip Vice magazine to create a night that will live long in the memory for the residents of Södermalm. The hill on Götgatan will be filled with music, dancing and people when the city’s best clubs, stores and record shops take over.
Since some crazy athletes have decided to run all round Stockholm, Morfar Ginko will stay open late on Saturday night. Axel Boman and Dandy Digital will blast some tip-top house from the balcony while Above All will keep things messy in the cellar. Why run when you can dance?
Viva! Thomas Gylling and his entourage are pulling out their three biggest carnival trucks and driving to Gustav Adolfs Torg. There they will be met by tons of people in the mood for dancing. A huge stage with live bands and DJs will ensure that town will be dancing to the samba beat.
The group Tristes Tigres celebrate the release of their album Tropical Deression in memory of deceased band member Pato. A bunch of celebrated hip hop and reggae artists will join the party. Invited DJs will get things moving at Bar Brasil XL from 11pm onwards. Legendary.
It’s time once again for the Trädgården Festival. Beer on the grass, live music and food. And it doesn’t cost anything to get in.
Time for a revolution. Tired of the dull file-sharing debate, seven Swedish record labels and have decided to generate some action in the music world. Gentle Touch, The Kid, Motoboy and many more will be playing live at Debaser on Saturday.
Indie pop non stop. Sunday sees a gathering of the most promising Swedish indie bands at the cosy El Mundo to show that pop is back for good.
