View Calendar
2017-08-24 12:00 - 2017-08-26 23:00
Kungsträdgården
Address: Jussi Björlings allé 5, Stockholm, Sweden

 

The biggest celebration for Finland’s Centennial outside of Finland will be held right here in Stockholm – and eveybody’s  invited to the party! Finland’s 100 years of independence are celebrated in the middle of the city with a big festival in Kungsträdgården. Music, food, fashion, exhibitions and discussions with a Finnish theme will fill the park for three days.

 

Especially the musical artists are worth checking out, as STHLM/SUOMI brings out some of the very best Finland and Sweden-Finns have to offer right now. Be sure not to miss ALMA, who is on the brink of an international breakthough, or Krista Siegfrids, who you will already know from her Melodifestivalen entries. Then there’s the world-class acapella stylings of FORK, who put their own twist on the best international pop and rock tunes. And the charming Darya & Månskensorkestern, who take you back in time with their original songs and Finnish tango classics. Oh, and all the young girls will love Finland’s answer to Bieber, Isac Elliot. And there’s Sweden-Finnish stars like Anna Järvinen and Iiris Viljanen. And so much more…

    As soon as Sam Smith broke through to the world by taking in the tears in the chorus of Disclosures single "Latch", it became apparent that we had to do with a singer beyond the usual. The rest is modern pop history!

    His 2014 album debut had "In The Lonely Hour", "Money On My Mind" and "Stay With Me" hitting the lists around the world - among other things, Sam Smith reached the top of the Swedish album charts. The change was total, from having played in Bråvalla Festivals' smallest scene in the summer of 2014, the emotional singer from London, when the year was to be summed up, sold unmatched 12 million records and accounted for the biggest breakthrough in the year. Sam Smith also picked up four, highly deserved, American Grammy. Since then, he has also won an Oscar with Symphonic Writing's On The Wall, the motion soundtrack for the Bond movie "Spectre".

    When Sam Smith released this song "Too Good At Goodbyes" earlier this fall, he had his biggest single progress in Sweden, and at the same time, he was looking forward to increasing the expectations of the new "The Thrill of It All", released on November 3.

If anything can be said about this band, their reputation has increased over the years until today. Over the years, album sales have exceeded 125 million copies and continue to tick up. Today, both the young and old discover their music and join the massive range of fans around the world.

    During the 10th century, we have seen a series of indie rock bands from the British Isles making the genre exciting again. The leaders of this new wave are the Leeds' band Alt-J, who raised the level a really snap with his now-debut album An Awesome Wave when it came in 2012. Since then, the band has released another two albums, of which the latest - Relaxer - landed in June. Both albums have invited tickling sound images and made it all the more clear that Alt-J is a key player in the emergence of indie rock.

    With over 20 million albums sold, platinum records, sold out tours and five Grammy Award nominations, it's easy to imagine why James Blunt's career has been a triumphal trait. But the fact is that it was about to end before it even started. After being discovered by songwriter Linda Perry at the South By Southwest show, James Blunt debuted with the single "High" and the album "Back To Bedlam" in October 2004 but these went almost unnoticed. It wasn't until the three-piece "You're Beautiful" was released just over half a year later that he had his boom.

    "You're Beatiful" peaked the lists in ten countries - including Sweden, England and the United States. With the drag-and-drop, the album "Back To Bedlam" rushed up for the lists and became the best selling record in Britain in the twentieth century. Since then, the success has continued for James Blunt - every single disc he has released has sold platinum several times.

    In March 2017, James Blunt released his fifth album "The Afterlove", which include collaborations with Ed Sheeran and Stephan Moccio (Miley Cyrus, The Weeknd).

Two albums that contain archive recordings of the King's voice and new orchestra arrangements of some of his biggest hits along with several surprises.

    A unique concert with an unique artist.

    It was as though everyone was just waiting for Seinabo Sey to appear. As if everyone knew she was fantastic even before we had heard of her. So when she showed up we were already more than ready to wrap our hearts around her talent. Her voice was, of course, what struck us first. A voice that fills the room with warmth. But soon it became clear that the songs were just as big as that voice. "Younger" and "Hard time" were the first two songs she released, which artist can handle such a trick? Seinabo Sey of course, as the easiest thing in the world.
