Stockholm, July 29-31
Stockholm is a city that comes to life in summer and Stockholm music & arts is located on the beautiful island of Skeppsholmen, surrounded by the city’s glittering water landscapes, lies at the heart of Stockholm. Acting as a cultural hub for both Sweden and Scandinavia, Stockholm is a city well deserving of its own international music festival. Stockholm Music & Arts is that festival and with food, drink and great company we will celebrate the city, summer, art and music in a distinctive urban archipelago setting.
We aim to provide a high quality program that is both ambitious and unique that will help expand the musical and cultural horizons of our nation’s capital. On July 29th – 31th this year, Stockholm Music & Arts will continue last years success (Van Morrison, Tori Amos and many more) and offer a program that combines intelligent art with distinct musical artistry – some of the best Sweden (and the world) has to offer.

– Earplugs are for sale at the official festival merchandise tent.
– Food and drink: It’s important to drink plenty of water during the day especially if it’s warm and you’re also consuming alcohol. It’s also easy to miss putting some real food in your stomach when you’re busy running around seeing all your favorite bands, so please, don’t forget to drink and eat regularly throughout the day.
– Sunscreen can be a good idea if you’re out in the sun all day so bring some with you.
Where should I stand?
It is often quite crowded the closer to the stage you get. If you’re not used to being at concerts it may be wise to a bit further back. Should you wish to stand close but avoid the crowd, the sides are always a safe bet. Please watch out for the people around you!
Please do not climb the trees on the festival site.
Umbrellas are not allowed at the festival. Unfolded umbrellas obstruct the vision of those behind you in the crowd, so please bring rainwear instead.
