Entertainment

Entertainment

In the hometown of Gyllene Tider and Roxette, there is a constant stream of entertainment. At Simstadion Brottet, concerts are set with the sea as a backdrop. Hallandsgården holds sing-alongs, and Norre Katts Park’s musicians and poets perform on Kafé Rotundan's small stage. Live music can be heard from pubs and rock stages. During the International Street Festival, the whole town becomes one big stage and Nolltrefem is a culture centre for young people, often visited by well-known performers on their way up. At Halmstad Teater (theatre), the auditorium fills with expectant audiences eager to see exciting productions and interesting lectures. The programme is packed with visiting performers, and local talents offer music, theatre, variety shows, dance and musicals. Halmstad Arena is the place to be if you prefer bigger shows, sports events and exhibitions. Let your hair down to the resident orchestra or relax at one of the many outdoor cafes and restaurants. Maybe you prefer a turn on the dance floor to a dance band in Västerhagen or a gospel concert in Gullbranna? Throughout July, the festival spirit begins when the sun is still high in the sky, and après beach at Solgården in Tylösand is a classic, to say the least.
