Music that takes Göteborgsvarvet to the next level

Published: May 15th, 2018

Gothenburg is not only filled with runners on 19 May but also fantastic music! Along the Göteborgsvarvet course there are more than 50 bands and DJs that will be playing for the runners and spectators. This is no ordinary gig for the bands, not only are they playing for a very large crowd, they’ll be playing for about 6 hours!

During the Göteborgsvarvet 2018 you will be able to enjoy music from several different genres. Everything from rock, big band, DJs, blues and of course cover bands. We have a lot of exciting new musicians to share with you below.

New for 2018!
Brewhouse Big Band, Ostindie Street
Brewhouse Big Band is geared towards the younger generation between the ages of 15-25. They have received awards for Sweden’s Big Band for teens two times.

Rivjärn, Lantvärnsgatan together with the band Boll
Rivjärn is a Gothenburg band that has managed to reach millions of plays on sound cloud with their upbeat sound.

Elie Sandberg, Karl IX:s Road
A high-octane deliverance of blues and soul can be expected when Elie Sandberg Trio takes the scene. It’s composed of two of Gothenburg’s most promising musicians. Elie is often compared to Janis Joplin.

O’Svenigan’s, BASF-building near Linnéplatsen
O’Svenigan’s plays upbeat Irish and Celtic folk music in all shapes and sizes. Traditional folk songs, jigs and more modern songs that you can dance to for hours.

Lady2Duo delivers a high-class of diverse music that will have everyone dancing. Their music will have everyone moving despite their age. You will hear music that you wanted to hear and music that you didn’t even know that you deep down wanted to hear.

A big thank you to all the bands that are playing and good luck!
