Live entertainment, venue management and event strategy company ASM Global has announced that Kägelbanan, Stockholm is set to reopen under a new operator, Stockholm Live.
The music venue at Södra Teatern has been closed for three years but will now be opening its doors once more for concerts and events.
In previous years, Kägelbanan has hosted gigs from numerous international artists including Coldplay, Ice Cube, The Libertines, First Aid Kit, The Killers and more.
The venue bolsters Stockholm Live’s portfolio across Sweden’s capital, which has also recently welcomed the addition of a new outdoor venue, Betongparken. ASM Global is known as Stockholm Live in Sweden, and Kägelbanan will join the company’s portfolio in the UK and Europe which includes AO Arena, First Direct Arena, Olympia London, P&J Aberdeen and more.
Stockholm Live’s chief executive Andreas Sand said: “Kägelbanan is an incredibly important venue for Stockholm with all its history and great artists who have performed here. With its capacity of close to 1,000 spectators, it fits perfectly into what is requested by our promoters, and with its location and atmosphere, it will be an important piece in Stockholm’s cultural scene going forward.”
Kägelbanan will be used by Stockholm Live for concerts and events, and nightclub activities will no longer take place at the venue.
The venue will undergo renovations before reopening, and will be fitted with a new light and sound system.
