Midsummer Eve in SL

Friday June 19 - 22:00 (1 PM SLT)

In modern Sweden, Midsummer's Eve is celebrated on the second to last Friday and in June. It is arguably the most important holiday of the year, and one of the most uniquely Swedish in the way it is celebrated, even if it has been influenced by other countries long ago. The main celebrations take place on the Friday, and the traditional events include raising and dancing around a huge maypole. One typical dance is the frog dance. Before the maypole is raised, greens and flowers are collected and used to cover the entire pole

Sounds a bit odd huh? Well it is very odd indeed and now you got the chance to celebrate this in Second Life. Right now, in front of the SecondHouse of Sweden a little traditional Swedish outdoor dance floor being built, a maypole is going to be raised, market booths going to be out placed…and much more.

Tina (PetGirl) Bergman, Ewa Aska and I are organizing this event for everyone in Second Life.

The celebration starts at 01.00 PM SLT and continues through the whole magical Swedish Midsummer Eve night, a night when the sun doesn’t set.

Ikaros String (DJ ) starts the party incl ring dances at 1 PM (22.00 CET) - 2 PM (23.00 CET)

Bara Johnson – a fantastic Swedish live artist recongnised from both RL and SL will play at 2 PM (23.00 CET) - 2.30 PM (23.30 CET

Noma Falta is a musician playing blues and soulful rock in virtual worlds and In-person around the globe. 2.30 PM (23.30 CET) - 3 PM (24.00 CET)

I will live dj right after Noma 3 PM (24.00 CET) til late.

Hearty Welcome to Midsummer Eve in Second Life
Tina, Ewa & Jesper
