Summer is the season for large music festivals. Here are some of the biggest this year!
Stockholm is bursting with music and festivals during the summer months. There is truly something for everyone: from throbbing electronic dance floors to delicious craft beer pub crawls. Stockholm Early Music Festival – the largest event in the Nordics for baroque, renaissance, and medieval music – opens up the festival season in June. And the same week the island of Långholmen will turn into a thumping outdoor club in Department Långholmen Edition. Great music and good vibes are also guaranteed when Rosendal Garden Party kicks off later in June. And some of the world's most prominent artists visit Gärdet and the much-anticipated Lollapalooza. The Baltic Sea Festival closes the music festival season in August with classical music.
Besides music, Stockholm also has several arts and culture festivals. August kicks off with the annual Stockholm Pride whish this year celebrates its 25th anniversary. Two weeks later Stockholm Culture Festival will offer music, dance, workshops, and activities for the whole family. In late July you'll also be treated to a smörgåsbord of comfort food delicacies at Street Food Festivalen.
Here is our festival selection for this summer!
