Let’s talk about music and concerts in Sweden. To summarize: Stockholm = No Future, that’s old news.
Look at all these new swedish festivals: Right now the future seems to be in… hemmm, Hässleholm. Where is Hässleholm? I don’t know. Never heard this name before. Checked the website and the blog (Norra Skåne – Siestablogg) and it seems that it’s in Skåne, south of Sweden. The amazing thing is that Sonic Youth and Phoenix will be playing there. For Sonic Youth, it’s not such a big surprise, i know that Thurston Moore likes Sweden, remember the picture on SY’s website where Thurston is wearing a nice swedish midsummer Tee.
Congrats to the Team organising the Siesta Festival, that’s a great start.
