Excited to be part of the upcoming Music & Arts event ‘Grisfesten’ (Pig’s party) on the grounds of the mythical ’Dragon Gate’ April 30th.
Dragon Gate was initially built by the Chinese billionaire ‘Mr. Li’ who wanted to build something great to honor Chinese culture and establish his legacy in his newfound country of Sweden.
But due to a series of controversies and difficulties with the Swedish bureaucracy the Dragon Gate was closed and left to decay until recently when Dragon Grate reopened for business.

The organizers behind the Stockholm-based ‘Technobastun’ will now host a unique event with an amazing line up of Swedish and international DJ’s like Kornel Kovacs, Turtle Bugg, Art Alfie and Fabio Scali, and a group show with artists including Militza Monteverde, Tomas Sjögren, Hilde Retzlaff, Duda Bebek, Alexandra Karpilovski and many more Music and Arts acts.
