A highlight of today's Stockholm Pride and Rille Hantes glittering pop evening for diversity, with artists such as Katrina from Katrina and the Waves and Elena Paparizou. Participating artists from Bosnia & Herzegovina, Iceland, Spain and Belgium will perform and Dammen will host a tribute to the King of Reggae Bob Marley.

We promise an unforgettable evening where differences are celebrated, key changes appreciated and where you can dance to a cavalcade of schlager hits from Eurovision winners from many different countries and decades. Greece’s – but also our – superstar Helena Paparizou ups the tempo with the hits we love, and world famous Katrina (Katrina and the Waves) gets us warm with the ultimate summer hit “Walking on sunshine”. Both have won the Eurovision Song Contest. Both participate in the Eurovision Concert
for Diversity. All to show that gender, size, age, diagnoses or income don’t matter. Everybody is equal and everybody is welcome to Eurovision Village.
