Robyn "Saturday Night Live", Stockholm, Gay Stockholm, Lesbian Stockholm

We love our Swedish pop sensations – Robyn, Lykke Li, The Radio Dept, The Knife… The list can be made long.

Robyn made her SNL debut as musical guest last night (December 10th) during episode nine from the 37th season of the legengary NBC show – Watch below. As always, Robyn is fantastic!

This summer 15 persons of the OUT editorial staff went to Sweden to celebrate Midsummer’s Eve and to explore why our country of less than 10 million people is so culturally relevant right now. From Robyn and the Knife to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The new issue of OUT lists 82 reasons to love Sweden, starting with an interview with Alexander Skarsgård, best for his role in HBO’s lusty drama True Blood. In the interview Alexander Skarsgård talks with the Swedish filmmaker, Jonas Åkerlund about the Swedish conquest of Hollywood, national differences in etiquette, and why Swedes get so much sex. Read the interview>>

We love our Swedish pop sensations – Robyn, Lykke Li, The Radio Dept, The Knife… The list can be made long. The Washington Post recently visited Stockholm and seems to be of the same opinion.

“When the sun goes down in Stockholm, the music heats up thanks to a collection of intimate venues and a hip fan base dedicated to pop music appreciation” says the Washington Post in an article on the music scene in Stockholm.


“This is Stockholm, a global beehive of 21st-century pop, where Swedes treat their music with the reverence it deserves. In recent years, Scandinavia’s largest country has churned out some of the most finely crafted, detail-oriented pop on the planet, produced by artists such as Stockholm sensations Lykke Li and the Knife and Gothenburg outsiders the Tough Alliance and jj. When I visit the land responsible for all these fantastic sounds, it makes perfect sense. In Stockholm, the nightclubs are clean and intimate, the sound systems are loud and lush, the DJs are encyclopedic, and the bands can be brilliant.”
