I find life and adventure to be hilarious! Check it: I LIVED in Sweden a while back, just a couple of months ago. NOW That I am back in the USA, PRINCE confirms to go back to Stockholm; which is where I went not too long ago to see Michael Jackson's Immortal World Tour! Talk about hilarious! Haha. He was there in August for the 'Way out West' festival, where my ex experienced Prince, live. She bragged about how that was BOMB; now she must be seeing him again, I am sure. If she's still there? I don't know? BUT...

THIS must mean, he is preparing for a short run in America, it better mean that! I don't want to have to spend a lot money to go back to Sweden..I don't think I'll ever, because of the circumstances, but

Awesome news for the Swedes! It's going to be awesome! smile

Here is the "Return of the King".

After his acclaimed 2011 gig in Gothenburg returning Prince to Sweden.

On August 4, he appears on the Stockholm music & arts

Legendary artist Prince, 54, is ready for a concert in Sweden.

According to the website drfunkenberry.com he will perform at the festival Stockholm music & arts on 4 August.

It will be the versatile artist's second show for Sweden under-10's.

Two years ago, said Prince, or Prince Rogers Nelson as his real name, for a highly acclaimed concert in Gothenburg festival Way Out West. After the gig was Entertainment Blade music reviewer Markus Larsson taken.

"There was unfortunately no great concert. It was not magical, monumental, crunching, crazy and masterfully. It was even better. "Wrote Larsson and handed out honors,.

No official confirmation has yet been reported.

Stockholm Music & Arts was held for the first time the 2012th When played, among others, Patti Smith, Bjork and Laleh at the festival.

Not sure it's gonna happen. There's no homepage for the festival, no tickets, no schedule, no confirmed acts whatsoever. The festival might not even take place a second year? Or they're still working on everything..

This is going to be awesome.

Like Manki said, it's the most beautiful venue you could ever imagine.

Skeppsholmen, a small, green island in the middle of Stockholm, surrounded by water and city lights.

The festival last year had an awesome sound, amongst the best I've heard outdoors.

The organizer is a good friend of mine. They have booked a large night club for an afterparty.

Hopefully there's an aftershow, although nothing has been said about it. The club is a live venue with stage, sound and lights in place, so let's hope. No, I can't tell you the name of the club just yet. But it's walking distance from Skeppsholmen.

Is biljettnu.se a reliable ticket seller? I almost ordered tickets from there, but then I googled it and decided not to buy. The arranger of the event also warns not to buy tickets from other than Ticnet.

biljettnu.se has their own Facebook group - translated it is called "We who have been f*cked by biljettnu.se". It's one of those "scalping as a business" companies. ticnet.se is the only official ticket outlet for the festival.

Received some pm's about the concert, and I thought I could post this here.

Here's a map of Skeppsholmen, with the concert area marked with blue.

Hi all, a few questions :

  • Was it possible last year to buy daily tickets or do you have to buy a full 3-day ticket?
  • Any news about ticket prices for this year?
  • Any chance for "gold ring" tickets, or does the venue doesn't have that option?
  • Did the festival sold out last year? wondering how fast tickets usually sell for this kind of shows in Stockholm...
  • I guess august is full-on vacation time for everyone in Sweden? wondering how packed the city gets...or is it the time of year all locals are out of the city for their summer vacations?

Thanks!

A bit off topic... but anyone going should check out the film "Searching For Sugar Man". It's an awesome Swedish documentary that won an Academy Award this year. It's about Rodriguez, who makes a rare appearance at the festival.

I'm also going! Just have to see Rodriguez and Prince of course!
Though it's a bit wierd that they haven't said anything about tickets prices or who else is playing.
