Scandinavia’s newest and most diverse festival – Backyard Sessions XL
Organized by ‘Deep House Sweden’, Backyard Sessions XL is a two day festival nestled in the “People’s Park” in the heart of the multicultural city of Malmö in Sweden. The people behind Backyard Sessions XL aim not only to unify Malmö’s unique micro music cultures, but to also stand as an ambassador for Sweden’s most racially diverse and thriving city.
“We want to embrace the diversity of Malmö, Sweden’s most multicultural city that has 170 of 193 of UN’s officially recognized nationalities represented here. Except for top quality electronic music we are making sure the festival has something for everyone no matter your age, nationality or lifestyle”, says Alex Esser, one of the co-founders of Backyard Sessions XL.
Evolved from the original Sunday parties in Malmö, the two-day electronic music festival Backyard Sessions welcomes not only techno savvies and house music nerds chasing the latest vibes and rhythms. The festival combines the top-quality electronic headliners with all the diverse culture Sweden’s third largest city has to offer: Traditional Swedish street food side by side with Lebanese brunch. A cocktail lounge next to a mocktail bar and a hooka pipe Bedouin tent. Bouncy castles and ice-cream for the kids across the park from two Funktion One powered music stages, where world class electronic music will be played.
On the 26th and 27th of August Malmö will welcome ANNA, Andrea Martini, Claptone, Finnebassen, Giorgia Anguili (live), Recondite (live), Simina Grigoriu, Sonja Moonear and many more.
Backyard Sessions XL take place on Saturday and Sunday 26-27 August 2017 from noon to 9 pm in Folkets Park in Malmö. Children accompanied by an adult, have free admission to the festival. For the the two days, Folkets park will house two sound stages, art installations, a hooka-pipe lounge with comfy couches, pop-up street kitchens, tents and a children’s village for kids’ adventures. On Saturday at 9 pm, the festival will be transferred into a multi room event in the 1901 Malmö signature music palace, The Moriska Pavilion in the heart of Folkets park.
