Malmöfestivalen

Malmöfestival 2015
Hi everyone, the summer just blasts on - fun and sun everyday and lots of it! So sorry if I haven't blogged a lot lately, but it's been busy. Today I'm going to try to do some scrap booking (daunting!) starting with our recent trip. We went to Sweden in July and the weather was cold and rainy. Handsome hubby insists that in August the weather is usually better so next time we will go to Sweden in August, and one of the first things on my list will be the Malmö Festival.

Held this year August 14 - 21 it's just insane the amount of things that they have going on!  You'll find opera, dance, theater, music, interactive, food, an amusement park (a tivoli) - all at 32 scenes around the city of Malmö!  For example today (Monday, 8/17) if I were there I would eat barbeque, try a skim board, build a model of a house, dance Samba with the kids, try the Pop Quiz in Central park and listen to Zhala (who has opened for Robyn) at Gustavs scenen.

Here's the low-down from their site:

All you need to know

We're The Malmo Festival - a warm, friendly and sustainable festival and I have taken the city of Malmö for a wild dance one week every year since 1985. Right in the heart of the city you will experience everything from ground breaking art, music and culture to a variety of food that reflects the intercultural vibes and people of Malmo. 
Our environmental concerns have been awarded by A greener festival, the Keep Sweden Tidy Foundation and Yourope. With 1,4 million visits every year we're the largest festival in a city environment in Scandinavia. 
Everyone is welcome and almost everything is completely free!
