Eriksdalsbadet is a municipal swimming and sport centre near Årstaviken on Södermalm in Stockholm.

The outdoor bathing area was built in 1962 for the European Swimming Championships and since then there has been numerous of swimming competitions held at Eriksdalsbadet. Those who have grown up in Stockholm probably think of Eriksdalsbadet as their oasis in the summer heat, the place you went to when the beach was too far away. Since 1999 Eriksdalsbadet also have the largest and most modern indoor bath.

Before the outdoor bathing area was built there was a water treatment plant, but long before this was the place where the Eriksdals Theater was located. The Theater was unfortunately destroyed by a bomb which razed the Theater to the ground. This happened during the World War II, February 22, 1944. According testimony the bomb hit the ground right outside the fence where Popaganda’s main stage will be placed.

The Popaganda Organization

Since the start the Popaganda festival has been arranged by the Popaganda organization, which currently consists of around 20 people who all work voluntarily with the festival and club. The members decide together which bands are going to play, probably making Popaganda the most democratic festival in Sweden.

Since none of us makes any profit from the festival, we only book bands that we like ourselves. The voluntary work is the main reason for the low ticket prices of the festival.
