Stockholm Jazz Festival, which starts today (Friday June 17th) and runs through the whole weekend. The big news this year is the change of venue... it will be at the Solliden and Galejan stages in the Skansen park. The festival has changed a bit through the years from a pure jazz festival to a mix of jazz, R&B, soul and blues with both Swedish and international artists. The main headliners this year are LaGaylia Frasier, David Sanborn Trio, Bobby Womack and Angie Stone. Click here for a complete list of artists and scheduled times. You can either buy a one day pass (595 SEK) or a three day pass (840 SEK). Tickets can be purchased at the door or on the Tickster website. Now let's just hope for some good weather!
Skansen is located on the island of Djurgården and is easy to get to from the Rival Hotel. Just take the Djurgård Ferry from Slussen... the trip just takes 8 minutes and then it is a short 5 minute walk to Skansen.
