I’ve spent the weekend in Copenhagen, visiting the 25 year anniversary celebration of Club Metropolis. The club started in 1993 at Barbue, a venue located on the first floor of Huset KBH at Rådhusstræde 13. It was shut down a few years later, but resurfaced this weekend.

The 2017 edition of the festival was named Terminus Impact and taking place at Dickens in downtown Calgary. This was the 6th edition of the Terminus festival with a very nice lineup.
Here we go again. The outdoor festival Way Out West in Gothenburg is becoming a summer tradition. Unfortunately, another tradition is the rain which was back to epic proportions.
Time for yet another visit to Way Out West, the annual gigantic outdoor city festival in my hometown Gothenburg. At first the lineup seemed a bit sparse, but it actually turned out to be great.
Several years ago, I went to a Nine Inch Nails gig in Stockholm, at the same time as my own world collapsed around me. Trent hit a special note and I was moved to tears, transfixed by the flame. Two years later I stood alone in the rain, surrounded by thousands, while Trent teared away at his equipment in the forest of Arvika.
I spent the weekend in Köln, attending the 8th Amphi Festival. 16 000 visitors dressed in black invaded the German town for an overdose of electronic music. Some of the favorite concerts were DAF, Project Pitchfork, Combichrist, SITD, Seabound and Spetsnaz.
I see people with headphones everywhere and I often wonder what they listen to. On the street, in the office, at the tram… I had an idea to make something out of this, but as usual someone else had already done it. So here you are.
I spent the weekend at an old abandoned amusement park in the deepest forests of Småland. It sounds like the plot of a bad zombie-splatter movie but it was even better. This was the first time the Kalabalik festival was held! The arrangers of sadly closed club Kalabalik in Växjö decided to gather a bunch of strange bands at an even stranger location, and voila! Instant success.
I’m back from the festival in Hultsfred, an annual event that died last year but got resurrected by the Scorpio necromancers to once more lay waste to the shores of lake Hulingen. Since Arvika festival was canceled a few weeks ago, this was one of the few places left in Sweden for festival concerts.
