Come along to arenas, clubs and forgotten dance floors in a historic journey through popular music’s Gothenburg! The exhibition will present both individuals and groups that have had major impact on the music scene in Gothenburg. Meet the artists, visit the sites and take part in the spirit and sound.
Among others, meet the hip hoppers, rockers, punks and indie poppers, not to mention artists such as The Knife, Spotnicks, Inflames, Leila K and Soundtrack of Our Lives, from todays Aurelia Dey to early 50´s rocker Chris Lennart and 60´s pop icon Doris.
Lyrics, clothing styles and the music tell about dreams, feelings of longing home or away, love and desire for change. Loved or hated and not always let into the great salons popular music offers each generation new communities, and not least a free zone to find our own way.
The exhibition is based on material from Museum of Gothenburg’s collections and a large amount loaned material from private individuals.
