The venues

Södra Teatern

Södra Teatern is Sweden’s foremost international venue for music, theatre and debate, and is part of Riksteatern. Since 1997, focus has been set on staging international performances. The building houses diverse events, spanning from club-scene entertainment, concerts, theatre and readings to children’s philosophy, to name a few.


The venue is the oldest theatre in Stockholm and is situated in the heart of the city’s bohemian pulse, with breathtaking views over the capital. Although built as a theatre, the main focus today is on music. The venue enjoys a solid reputation not only in Sweden but throughout the world, attracting vibrant locals and leading luminaries alike. Over 600 events were staged in 2010, 2011 will see around 1000 events. Södra Teaterns main stage is a beautiful and intimate lounge, appointed in green and gold with red velvet chairs. It also has six smaller stages.


Dramalabbet is an independent theatre group that runs a performance space close to Mosebacke Torg in central Stockholm, right next to Södra Teatern. The theatre was founded in 1998. Dramalabbet’s mission is to develop and nurture new dramatic writing, to create a space for untold stories and to provide a platform for the playwrights of tomorrow. The primary focus of Dramalabbet is on full-scale production, but readings, workshops, a playwrights’ circle and the open dramaturgy department are other essential ingredients.
