I don't know of any events during those days unfortunately. Reggae Galore might be playing a set on Thursday at Judith & Bertil (Bergsunds Strand 38, 11738 Stockholm, Sweden; Metro station is Hornstull).

Some worthwhile record stores are:
Skivbörsen S:t Eriksplan (Metrostation S:t Eriksplan)
Nostalgipalatset (Metrostation S:t Eriksplan)
An Ideal For Living (all the records are in the basement), Södermannagatan 19, Metrostation is Medborgarplatsen
Snickars Records (Hökensgata 11, Metro station Slussen)
Mickes Skivor (Långholmsgatan 20 -- I think ... same owner of two stores both sides of the street ... one has a lot of reggae, metro station Hornstull)
Pet Sounds (Skånegatan 53, Metro station Medborgarplatsen) -- The seller has some rarer reggae records behind the public area. Expensive but interesting still.

i visited Snickars Records today, unfortunately nothing in exciting except the recent productions from the local greats medidative, echo roots, the everton chambers lp, but the frendly person in charge there, mika, pointed me to the next block's record shop, record mania, and they were some good surprises there. watty burnett too late, al campbell foot stool, yami bolo where is the fuss amongst a few others. not a bad draw. did you know about it kal?

To be honest I thought I had written down Record Mania. Sorry about that. It is a crucial record store. They had an interesting LP with BB Seaton and Hugh Griffiths on Absissa there I was thinking of buying. 180 SEK which is a reasonable price I guess but.

So you bought the Al Campbell 12"? Been watching it for some time but never picked it up for some reason. It's a great rhythm (with some nice next cuts by Delroy Webster and Jah Larry + King Sighta).

no i hesitated but finally i didnt get the al campbell 12, because when i asked for price in euros it came up to 50 euros which is above my budget. still, i think i'll go back tonight and see if i can sort out a deal. i really rate this 12. thanks for the tips on the other cuts, i think i dont know them.

http://reggaeevent.se/ (design still "beta version") lists a lot of reggae related events in Sweden and other Nordic countries.
Stockholm is in this section -> http://reggaeevent.se/events/kategori/svealand/
