The popular Summerburst festival, dedicated to electronic music, gets a twin festival in November, LIGHTS. On Saturday November 30, Stockholm’s brand new Tele2 Arena turns into Scandinavia’s biggest and most luminous night club with the arrival of the LIGHTS festival – Sweden’s new indoor festival for electronic dance music.
Over 15,000 dance music aficionados will get the dark November night illuminated as Tele2 Arena is refurnished into an intimate, pulsating and spacious nightclub – a light in the dark for fatigued winter souls. Spearheading the festival is the arranger Stureplansgruppen Live – the creators of Summerburst; Scandinavia’s most prodigious festival for electronic music.
- Sweden has previously lacked a really big dance music festival during the winter months. Historically, only individual concerts in our genre have been arranged. Now, however, we summon all our powers behind this new concept. The program will, in conformity with Summerburst, focus on electronic music. Nonetheless, this time we emphasize music with a slightly harder twist, said Anders Boström, festival arranger for LIGHTS and Summerburst alike.
The brand new and state-of-the-art Tele2 Arena, which has
been lauded both for its superior acoustics and its exquisite and intimate
interior design. The interior, which for the night will be able to host 15,000
people, will be intimate and spacious at the same time.
LIGHTS aims to take the feeling of the nightclub – the music, dance and the good company – to a whole new level with a dance floor of over 5,000 square meters. This floor will pulsate to the beats of world class DJs that illuminate the dark, Swedish winter. Summerburst 2012 and 2013 saw some of the world’s greatest and biggest DJs perform in front of tens of thousands of people.
