PARADE: STOCKHOLM PRIDE PARADE 2017

This one should probably be pretty self-explanatory. This years Pride parade takes a 4km route from Kungsholmstorg all the way to Östermalms IP. 45,000 people are expected to attend.

Aug 5 @ 1300, Kungsholmstorg

CLUB: TJEJFESTEN STOCKHOLM

Club night Tjejfesten is having their biggest party of the year at Hornshuset on Friday. There’ll be DJs across two floors, playing dancehall, hip-hop and R’n’B, and the organisers promise that “it’s definitely possible to bribe our DJs to play a couple of your favourite tunes”.

CLUB: KLUBB HÅNGEL

Klubb Hångel is one of Stockholm’s iconic LGBTQ clubs, and they therefore have of course taken the chance to throw a massive party for Pride. On Friday they’re filling Södra Teatern with “balloons, lollipops, rainbows and a bunch of surprises” and bringing DJs including Emeliciouz, DJ Galina and Vertigo Rouge. They’re also going to have a ‘love chapel’ onsite, where you can get Pride-married if the mood takes you.

Aug 4 @ 2100, Södra Teatern
