Håkan Hellström has released eight albums and played countless gigs since the solo debut Känn ingen sorg för mig Göteborg in 2000. This summer you can see him live at Ullevi Stadium on 28th and 29th of July. But with the new exhibition coming up you won't have to wait quite so long for a treat. We checked in with Per Alexanderson, Head of Entertainment at Liseberg amusement park.
Was it given that Håkan Hellström should get his own exhibiton in the park?
–It all started when Ismail "Isse" Samie, who runs Håkan's record label Woah Dad!, and I started talking about doing something. It was clear to us what we wanted to do. We found an agreement after getting feedback from our colleagues and got started.
–Håkan is not only one of our biggest stars, but his songs contain so much. Everything from pop cultural references and the poetry of life to emotional journeys – and as you know he is also from Gothenburg.
What can visitors expect?
–It will be a musical journey that takes the visitor on an interactive, visual and very affectionate tribute to Håkan Hellström.
Which one is your favourite Håkan song?
–Gårdakvarnar och skit is not only one of the best songs in Sweden, but the whole world!
