July is generally a bad month for festivals and events in Stockholm due to the fact that most Stockholmers have vacation this month and leave the city. Instead, organizers cram in a large amount of events between the end of July and beginning of September making this a fun time to visit the city. There is pretty much something for everyone... cinema, dancing, music, culture, pride, concerts, drama, food and sporting events.
Something else positive that comes with August and September is the reopening of several cultural institutions after their summer breaks. Royal Opera House and Konserthuset both start their regular program on August 26th, Dansens Hus and Musikaliska start their regular programs on September 8th.
