Benjamin Ingrosso at Rockbjörnen with fans

The Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet has been arranging the Rockbjörnen award show for 40 years(!) now. The awards put an emphasis on best live acts, beside picking songs of the year as well as most devoted fans… The prizes are voted on by the fans tehmselves, so they are a good indicator of what really is popular with the younger crowd. The winners and nominees may be more pop than rock nowadays, but that’s just how the world has turned, right…

Here are our pictures from the Rockbjörnen 2019 award show, which took place in Kungsträdgården during the We Are STHLM festival.
