Show off your best dance moves during your next trip to Stockholm, Sweden. Stockholm is now the host of the Summerburst Music Festival, a two-day long party hosting tens of thousands of people and showcasing the hottest electronic dance artists.
The Summerburst Festival started as a day-long electronic music festival in June of 2011 and has grown hugely in popularity every year. Summerburst has now been extended to two full days of music in two separate cities and attendance has set new records at Stockholm Stadion. The Summerburst festival is also held in Gothenburg a week before the Stockholm event.
The Stockholm festival takes place at Stockholm Stadion, the original Stockholm Olympic Stadium that hosted the Olympic Games of 1912. If you fly into Arlanda Airport, you'll need to find your way from Arlanda to Valhallavägen-Lidingövägen at Norra Djurgården in Stockholm. The Flygbussarna and Swebus have buses that run from the airport to Stockholm Central Station, with Flygbussarna making a few stops along the route. A quicker but more expensive way to reach the central station is to take the Arlanda Express train, which takes 20 minutes. Once you arrive at Stockholm Central, take a taxi or subway to Stadion. If you don't mind spending a little extra, taxis run from the airport directly to the Stadion at a fixed rate.
A variety of ticket packages are available, but all fans must be at least 18 to attend the event. Early bird tickets go on sale first and the lucky fans who scoop these up pay less. Standard one- and two-day passes go on sale when the early bird tickets sell out and true electronic music junkies can buy premium packages to ensure the best view of the bands. Premium packages include a pass to the Summerburst pre-party, transportation to the event, better views during the event and access to the after-party. Premium package tickets are only available to festival goers over the age of 20 and all tickets are sold through Tickster.
Need to know
The Summerburst festival has a few regulations you may want to keep in mind before planning your trip to Stockholm. The festival is not a family event and only guests over the age of 18 are allowed inside the arena. Similar to most two-day music festivals, tickets are also not transferable, so you can't attend one day of the concert, then give or sell your ticket to someone else for the next day.
