Gothenburg is celebrating its breweries with a special beer week, while soulful star Seinabo Sey is holding three gigs across southern Sweden and Stockholm is hosting a French film festival. Read on to discover more about our cultural picks for the next seven days.
If you don't recognise the name Seinabo Sey, it's time to learn it. The Swedish star with west African ancestry has a big, silky voice that's already won her a string of chart hits across Scandinavia since she burst on to the music scene in 2013 and February this year she picked up the Best Newcomer gong at Sweden's Grammy Awards. 
Over the next few days you can catch her live in Malmö, Lund and Stockholm. Live too far away? Watch her latest video and take a look at The Local's five other music tips of the month while you're at it.
Meanwhile Gothenburg is hosting dozens hundreds of talks, exhibitions and experiments as part of International Science Week. But if that sounds a bit too taxing a way to spend your spare time, why not check out the city's beer festival. GBG Beer Week kicks off with a bus tour of four top breweries on the west coast, on Saturday.

Fancy some culture from further south in Europe? Head to the Swedish capital to catch this year's French Film Festival, where you can watch movies by acclaimed directors including Thomas Cailley, Lucie Borleteau and Benoît Jacquot. Subtitles are in English.
Theatre fan? Tickets are still available for a new play performed by Irish-Swedish drama society 'Spuds and Sill' (a play on traditional Irish and Swedish fares, potatoes and herring) on April 17th and 18th at Kulturhuset in Skarpnäck in Stockholm.
'Another Peace', a modern drama written by Stockholm-based Irish playwright Niall Balfe, follows the fortunes of Bernie and Paul Quinn, owners of the local shop and post office, as they try to come to terms with the death of their son, Stevie.
