Festival Description

In August every year the heart of Stockholm pulsates with a vibrant combination of culture and festivities. It’s time for the Cultural Festival of Stockholm! Since its launch in 2006 the festival has quickly become a regular event and a great success among both Stockholm residents and visitors.

With their high quality, easy accessibility, innovation, breadth and variety, the 500 items on the programme attract about 300,000 visitors annually. The city’s streets and squares host a dynamic blend of music and entertainment: world music, jazz, opera, classical music, pop, rock, soul, standup comedy, children & family events, authors, street art, drama, the world’s biggest booksale, city walks, film, the VIVA! carnival, art, dance, photography and visiting international performers.

Admission is free to 99% of the festival. Everyone is welcome when Stockholm’s most vibrant cultural figures and groups invite festival participants to colourful and intense encounters between the local and the global.
