Sweden has much to look forward to in the coming year… in recent updates made to Aftonbladet it was revealed that Finland’s leading EDM festival ‘Weekend Festival‘ will be heading to its neighboring country of Sweden. Although Weekend Festival is a relatively fresh face to the industry, it has already been nominated in several European event & festival award categories. The festival has also been recognized for its highly astonishing production level which includes lights, visuals, decorations, designs and a brand new theme each year. Expectations are high and Weekend Festival always bring the best artists from the industry, and previous line-ups have included: Armin Van Buuren, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Zedd, Porter Robinson, David Guetta, Skrillex, Sebastian Ingrosso, and many more.
The Swedish edition of Weekend Festival is set to take place on the 5 & 6th of August 2016, in Sweden’s capital Stockholm. Artists are still to be announced, but the venue has been revealed to be Östermalms IP which has a capacity of hosting 25 000 people. Weekend Festival Estonia and Finland will be taking place during the same days and will surely be a weekend to remember!
Words from Hardi Loog, Weekend Festival Director:
With Stockholm being a mecca of popular music Stockholm has always been on my radar. After visiting the other festivals in the market I feel Weekend has something to share with the Swedish people they have not experienced yet. I am excited with the expansion to Sweden which is only the beginning of the weekend festival brand expansion in Europe.
