Festival info

Remember that Stockholm Slaughter represents artistic freedom and is an event entirely devoid of politics. Leave whatever ideological convictions you have at home and come join us in celebrating the music. We expect nothing less than another epic weekend and look forward to welcoming attendees from no less than 36 different countries (yes, this is a new record!).

Last but not least, and largely thanks to the unwanted attention we received last year, Stockholm Slaughter is now about to sell out for the first time. Consequently, we feel obliged to once again salute our loyal fans who make all this possible!

Age limit

As announced, the age limit for admission at the festival is 18 years with or without accompanying parents. No exceptions.

At the entrance

The address to the festival is Rökerigatan 1d, 121 62 Johanneshov. The nearest subway station is Globen, just a few meters away from Kraken.

In order to access the festival, you have to show a valid ticket, the pdf-file that includes a QR-code. Please bring a printout or show the QR code on your mobile device (use full light on the screen please!).

If you did not receive the pdf upon purchasing the ticket please contact Tickster before the festival starts. Receipts, order confirmations or anything else than valid tickets will not be accepted.

Please have your ticket ready when you enter the venue to assure a smooth check-in for everybody. Upon entering the venue, you will receive a wristband. The wristband is your ticket for the rest of the weekend depending on the purchased ticket, meaning that you can get in and out as often as you want.

It is absolutely forbidden to bring any sharp objects, liquids or any kind of weapons (including pepper spray). Bringing alcohol or food to the venue is also strictly prohibited.

Bars, snacks and alcohol

Both Kraken and Slaktkyrkan offer a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Payment by card only.

Between the venues we will have two different food trucks:

The Indian truck and the “Rolling Greek” truck.

Cameras and cloakroom

System cameras are allowed, but you are not allowed to bring into the concert hall any kind of backpacks or bags for your camera. Camera accessories, including camera bags MUST be checked in at the cloakroom.

Large jackets, coats or other large clothing items must be checked in at the cloakroom.

We appreciate if you limit the use of your phone/camera to film or take pictures during performances. It would be most considerate of you to think of the other fellow festival attendees and enjoy the shows together.

Merchandise

Band and festival merchandise will be available and can only be paid in cash.

1 EUR = 10 SEK

Press accreditation

The press list is already full thus we do not accept any accreditation requests.

Security

Our goal is to make this a pleasant experience for everybody while also complying with very strict rules and regulations. Thus some things that may be taken for granted in other countries, are simply forbidden in Sweden (like taking your drink with you when you go out for a smoke).

According to the Swedish law, persons that are extremely intoxicated are to be removed from venues without any prior warning. We hope that during the festival there will not be any such cases. Tap water is absolutely drinkable in Stockholm so, don’t save on it, it’s free!

Stockholm Slaughter is a moshpit-free festival. If you want to start a moshpit, you better stay at home.

Aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated. Please report aggressive behaviour it to the security guards or our hosts (people with purple red Stockholm Slaugher crew shirts).

Smoking

Both venues have a strict no smoking policy. If you want to smoke, you can do it outside.

Toilettes

There are toilets at the entrance of the venues and Kraken also has toilets on the right side of the stage.

Tourist info

About the city

Stockholm, capital of Sweden, home to more than 2 million people, is one of Europe’s most visitor friendly capitals. Stockholm is built on 14 different islands, interconnected by 57 bridges.

Regardless if you’re looking for a high-quality restaurant or unique museum, Stockholm has it all!

As compared to Copenhagen and Oslo, Stockholm is still cheaper for tourists, making it the most affordable Scandinavian capital today.

If you arrive one or several days prior to the festival you will be able to experience and see the city and its landmarks.

Temperatures of about 12-15℃ during the day and maximum 3℃ at night are expected (around 53 to 37 on Fahrenheit scale). In other words, if you plan to be out for a longer time, bring warm clothes!

A very important detail to keep in mind is that during weekends, public transport is in service all night long. Uber services are slightly cheaper than regular taxi (all taxi services are rather costly in Sweden), so if you’re on budget, whenever possible, use the subway or the bus.

Plan your travel in Stockholm by downloading the SL app (also available in English).

Card payments are widely accepted everywhere in Sweden do you don’t really need too much cash in your wallet, except for buying merch at the festival.

Arrival in Stockholm

If you’re arriving by car, make sure you know in advance where you’re going to park your car. Parking in the inner city can be an issue and fines are given all the time. Parking around the festival area is extremely limited so we suggest that you use the public transport instead.

If you are arriving by train, you can take the green line subway to Gullmarsplan to get to the venue.

Other shared transportation options are FlygbussarnaArlanda Express, the SL train service.

If you’re landing at Bromma, Skavsta or Västerås, then Flygbussarna might be the only easy way to get into the city.

Keep in mind that you must have a valid ticket before getting on board of the above-mentioned transport services. Payments on the public transport ot the driver/conductor are not possible. You can book you tickets either online, at the ticket machines or at SL services centers.
