MUSIC
BLOC PARTY AT GRÖNA LUND | DJURGÅRDEN
30/6

This might be a bit biased, but if there is anything to go see it has to be Bloc Party. Original with their sound and electric with their performances, the British indie rock band were arguably the outstanding performers of the mid 2000’s and have made a real name for themselves with a host of number 1 hits, including “Helicopter”, “Banquet” and “Hunting for Witches”. The soulful and unique lyrics and vocals of lead singer Keke Okeleke, as well as the synthesised bridges of the electric guitar and strong beat of the booming drums, Bloc Party get the crowd pumped and dancing long into the night. It might be on a Thursday, but you would be mad to miss the incredible opportunity hiding behind Stockholms prolific Gröna Lunds’s gates

FILM
INDEPENDANCE DAY: RESURGENCE | SF BIO
1/7

That special 4th of July is back once again and is on the big screen for you this Friday night! After recovering from Earth’s biggest threat of extinction, The UN has managed to create a form of defence to protect citizens from any other outwardly lifeforms from coming back with a vengeance. Whilst their defences might be prepared on paper, none was prepared for the extra-terrestrial barrage that is imminently coming towards them, will the world survive the second round or will Independence day become known as the day of extinction? Plenty of fights, CGI stunts and explosions make this movie a fun-filled action pack watch on an evening that needs a bit of drama!

ACTIVITY
PADDLE THROUGH THE CITY | SÖDERMALM
2/7

We’ve had Segways, rooftop walks even a ghost walk or two, but now it’s time to get around the city…. on a Kayak. Experience the tranquil waters of Stockholm as your paddle your way under the bridges and sit back and feast your eyes upon the scintillating sights. Whether it is your first time or you have more than a few rides under your belt, Långholmen kajak are more than accommodating and ensure you have a quality experience from beginning to end. Choose from Långholmen, Reimersholme or Södermalm, pick up a paddle and get moving, but don’t forget a camera for a picture or two from this unique and thoroughly interesting form of activity.

ACTIVITY
WALKING IN TYRESTA NATONALPARK | TYRESTA
2/7

Nothing can be better in this beautiful weather than putting on a pair of comfortable shoes and taking a wander through the beautifully untouched woods. If that is your thing then taking a brief trip outside of Stockholm to the Tyresta national park is just for you. Fascinating wildlife, as well as unique and stunning flora and fauna, are amplified by the all-round gorgeous weather we are currently having. If the walk itself isn’t enough to get you interested then a swim in the lakes or getting some snacks in the woodland cafe only add to a lovely day out. Take the family or some friends, maybe a picnic too, and get back in touch with nature on a cheap and relaxing day out in the most beautiful scenery Sweden has to offer.

FOOD
BRUNCH S/S STOCKHOLM | ARCHIPELAGO
3/7

Want to dine in style with a view of the picturesque archipelago’s, well brunch on the s/s Stockholm has got to be the thing for you this weekend. Setting sail on a three hour trip around the archipelagos, take the chance to relax in the beautiful lounges on board the grandeur ship, before tucking in to a buffet of delicacies to fill the stomach and warm the heart.

EXTRA GEM OF THE WEEK
MUSIC
RIHANNA | GLOBE ARENA
4/7

I don’t think this woman needs much of an introduction when it comes to things to go and see this weekend. Having established herself as one of the world’s greatest female artists, Rihanna has made her way to Stockholm as part of her “Anti World Tour”. Incredibly well known for her outstanding performances live on stage, the music icon is expected to make this tour the biggest of her star-studded career to date. Demonstrating the extraordinary range her world number 1 singles, as well as putting on a hell of a show full of lights, dancers and pyrotechnics, for just a reasonable price this is definitely a show worth seeing before the final few tickets are snapped up by equally enthusiastic fans!
