On Saturday 6 August, GES will take Skellefteå SUMMERTIME's main stage and make its only appearance north of Sundsvall next summer.
- "To be able to inaugurate with GES is really a stroke of luck, and we are fantastic that we have been able to attract such a large tour to Skellefteå, in addition to the premiere of our big festival." says festival director Gunnar Karlsson.
Engelska What originally started as a fun session has since their first epic single ”När vi gräver guld i USA” established itself in the Swedish folk soul as one of our big supergroups. There were two GES records that sold over half a million copies and GES became a new country label for Swedish pop music. The rest, as the saying goes, is history. If we also include Glenmark, Orup and Niklas solo records, we come up with millions of sold CDs, singles and vinyls as well as over 130 million streams on Spotify.
So when GES takes the step up on Skellefteå Summertime's big stage, our pop heroes will take you on an intimate but grand journey, filled with both GES' fantastic song treasure and of course the biggest hits from their own solo careers.
Over the years, there have been countless hits such as ”Hon har blommor i sitt hår”, ”Då står pojkarna på rad”, ”Om”, ”Hon är min” and ”När vi gräver guld i USA”. Glenmark, Eriksson and Strömstedt - a piece of Swedish pop history simply.
