For over four decades, CAROLA has taken Sweden by storm. This summer, the popular artist plays at Alive festival.
CAROLA HÄGGKVIST is one of Sweden’s most loved and respected artists. She broke through with a thunderous success in Melodifestivalen in 1983 with the song “Främling”, which marked the start of a phenomenal career. Since then, Carola has been a constant presence in the Swedish music scene. With songs like “Fångad av en stormvind”, “Evivhet” and “Mitt i ett aventur” Carola has enchanted Sweden with her music for over four decades and this summer the popular artist will take her place on the Alivescene.
We are incredibly happy to have managed to attract Carola to Alive 2024. For over 40 years she has been one of Sweden’s most successful artists and it feels really good that she will be playing with us!Patrik Schultz, CEO and marketing manager for Alive festival
CAROLA is joined on stage by comedian and DJ ANIS DON DEMINA, among others. When Alive was organised for the first time in 2022, ANIS gave a well-received concert. With his hits and an incredible live performance, the media profile got Borlänge’s youth rocking in front of the Alive stage. Now organisers can happily tell you that ANIS is returning to Borlänge this summer to create new festival magic.
Just like Anis Don Demina, SOFIE SVENSSON & DOM DÄR are also a mood booster. Since the start in 2017, the band has become one of Sweden’s most popular and streamed bands. With songs like “Bubbel på balkongen”, “Sabotage” & “Bara brudar” the group has several gold and platinum certifications and their songs together have reached well over 140 million streams. After many successful touring years and several sold-out gigs, the band is ready for 2024 and their new tour “Trash Tour”, where one of the stops will be the Alive festival.
The Thrash Metal band “BRODER TUCK” was a celebrated live band around Dalarna 10-15 years ago with, among other things, a celebrated performance at Sabaton Open Air, which was named the best gig of the festival by the local crowd. In 2010, the debut album “Thrashing” was released, but then under the name “Tuck From Hell”. The road to success was wide open, but for various reasons the band fell more or less fallow. However, the band’s founder and drummer Fredrik Johansson and guitarist Markus Bengts continued to play and write songs together. Together with Fredrik’s father Nils Patrik Johansson, the band Rifforia was started and in February 2024 the debut album “Axeorcism” will be released. The band is looking forward to coming out and meeting their audience live, and this summer Borlänge residents will have the chance to see the new band up close.
Our ambition with Alive festival is to have music that suits everyone and that live music is the focus. Therefore, we are extremely happy to welcome Anis Don Demina, Sofie Svensson & Dom Där and Rifforia to Alive festival 2024.Patrik Schultz, CEO and marketing manager for Alive festival
