If you pay attention to the Swedish popmusic scene, you might have heard about RIXFM Festival. It's a music festival that goes on tour every summer around Sweden. The festival is free of admission fee so anyone can show up to see the show. Some of Sweden's most popular acts gets to perform at RIXFM Festival and which artists who gets to perform at which cities vary a lot.
If you are a fan of Swedish pop, I would highly recommend you to attend one of these concerts! Here are 3 reasons why I think this festival is a good match for you!
1. See several of your favorite Swedish pop acts!
The RIXFM Festival concerts takes place for around 2-3 hours which contains several of acts. If you are unsure about attending a show and wondering if it will be worth the time to go to see one artist, don't worry. In this case, you shouldn't worry too much because there's many of different artists performing at one single show! If you made your research beforehand and picked a specific city in your most interest, the chances that you will like at least 1 or 2 of the acts are pretty high. The performing acts are picked through at who is most current right now at the radiostations.
2. You can get the opportunity to meet your fave!
Earlier on the day of a RIXFM concert, they have an event village nearby the stage. In every city there's always signings with some of the performing artists that evening. You can get to meet those artists, get an autograph and if things are not way too hectic also get pictures with them. These signings are very appreciated by fans and you are not forced to buy merch to being able to queue like many other signings.
3. International artists are also coming to perform at RIXFM Festival!
If the festival wasn't already good enough, they also invites International artists to perform at the show! I was at the Gothenburg show last year and the international acts performing that day were Queen Eleni Foureira and Alvaro Soler!
Except for the show itself, the sponsors of the festival have their own stands in the event village where they promote their products by give-aways and competitions.
RIXFM Festival are celebrating their 20-years anniversary this summer and it will be interesting to see if they have some surprises in planned for the tour! If you want to find more information about the festival you can find it at: https://www.rixfmfestival.se/
As every year for the past 10 years or so, I will be attending the show in Gothenburg! It's a bit of a tradition and so far, there has always been more than 3 acts which I have wanted to see live at these shows. These shows have been a good way to end the summer and the concert season. I really appreciate them and I have lots fun memories from them!
This was it for this time and I hope you enjoyed seeing my photos from last year's show!
