Festival Story:

The first festival ended on August 8, 1988 with a concert that featured Clarence Eggleton among others transmitted by television from Eriksdalshallen. We could look back on a Festival that had made a huge impact. The Sergels torg venue was broadcasted by Radio Stockholm. All the travellers were able to see our American guest choir and watch the festival on television when they waited for their underground train. We had hoped for several hundred audience members—but they numbered 3000! Do we have to tell you that the Radio Stockholm reporter was lyric?
