High Five

Address: Debaser Malmö, Norra Parkgatan 2

7pm – 3am

Free entry until 10pm, 90 kronor later

Age: 20 and over


High Five aspires to be that house party you later wish you’d never left. A group of friends taking turns playing their favourite records, inviting their favourite bands to play, and drinking a toast to happy times. Be prepared for indie, punk, rock and a twist of pop, as well as quality movies on the big screen and a music quiz at around 9 o’clock.


Gothenburg band We Live in Trenches are inspired by artists like Black Flag, Union Carbide Poductions and Motörhead. On stage at 11pm. Support from Swedish band The Change.


Address: Kulturbolaget, Bergsgatan 18

11.30pm – 4am

60 kronor (20 kronor before 12.30am)

Age: 20 and over


When the concert’s over and you’re stuck in some bar, your friends can’t decide where to go next and you want to go clubbing but can’t decide between house and radio hits, then it’s a dead cert you’ll end up here. KB’s Nightclub is a bit of everything without being too much of anything, a safe bet in a nightclub world where one fad fast replaces the next. You know what you’ll be getting at KB: a musical mixed bag with a vague pop/rock direction and friendly people who, like you, don’t really know how they got here.


Address: Brogatan, Brogatan 12

11pm - 3am

Free entry

Where Alice in Wonderland hunts a rabbit, club manager Emil Broomé in Wonderland hunts disco. When you've finished your botanic experimentation among the fine selection of beers upstairs, it's time to go down to the cellar, sorry - Wonderland - and hypno-dance to obscure disco. Then it's time for an after-party with the author with the bushy hair.

Wazzup Rockers

Address: Babel, Spångatan 38

8pm - 3am

Free entry until 10pm, 80 kronor after

Age: 20 and over

If you're looking for disco, reggae, cooking, rock and global pop music, you've come to the right place. The club is run by veterans Jonas from Falun and Oscar Villata, as well as all-rounders Filippa Freijd and Shirin B. With this motley crew behind the wheel, things can only go fantastically well. Things always kick off at 8pm with food and a cheap bar.
