Stockholm Culture Festival has become an integral part of summer in Stockholm. With the city centre as its setting and the Royal Palace as its backdrop, the festival invites people from near and far to an open and diverse event. The festival intends to introduce you to new, modern and sometimes unexpected cultural experiences.

“We are finally able to welcome everyone back to the festival after a two-year interruption due to the pandemic. The programme is being put together as we speak and there will absolutely be something for everyone,” says Linnéa Monteiro de Macedo, deputy director at the Event Department, City of Stockholm.

The five-day annual festival, which will be held 17-21 August, is free for all and organised by the City of Stockholm. There are six festival areas, all dedicated to a different genre or focus, where you can either enjoy being a part of the audience or participate yourself. There is a family area, several music areas with both international and Swedish artists, and an expanded food and drink area.

“The festival will once again gather people from all around Stockholm, the rest of Sweden and the world to experience the festival’s wide range of musical acts, activities and performances. People will come together, interact with new friends, and create memories. That’s what the festival is all about,” says Monteiro de Macedo.

Stop by Stockholm Culture Festival in August, whether you know what you want to get out of the experience or you are looking to encounter something new.
