Tech and music fest Gather has taken place at Nobelberget for the last two years, but this year that had become a problem – because Nobelberget is now in the process of being demolished. Luckily, they’ve now found a new home for the coming year. Still working with their previous landlords Atrium Ljungberg, the festival is moving to the Slakthusetområdet, where they’ll be putting on their usual blend of musical shows and cutting-edge, future-focused conferences and workshops.
This year’s Gather will look at 15 different topics, including The Economy of Death, Love As A Service and The Age of Surveillance Economy, with over 50 speakers from all over the world invited in to explore them.
“Gather is so much more than just a conference with speakers and discussions, labs and music. Our ambition is to, from Gather’s platform, be able to generate change, development and new possibilities. Gather should be a unique place where visitors can overcome their fears and find new perspectives. Slakthusetomårdet and its vision, is the perfect space to create that. It’s where Gather can contribute as a catalyst to the development of the area”, says Jakob Grandin of Gather.
Gather is coming to Stockholm from September 12-14.
