SEKT has lurked in its cellar venue (Alcazar) in Stockholm since the fall of 1999. Our ambition has been to create two things, both a forum for the most forward-looking musical and performance art and a relaxed locale where artists, musicians, and audiences can just hang out and meet one another.

Nothing is too pretentious for SEKT. But nothing can be too banal either. We let attitudes, genres, and art forms crash into each other. And sometimes, we get wholly unexpected results. Each SEKT evening has 3-4 live or recorded acts for stage or screen. All performances are short, sometimes just fragments.

SEKT is a reaction to a cultural vacuum. But also to watered-down populism and sleepwalking elite culture.
Therefore, our motto is: expand your head! And each SEKT proves anew that you don‚t actually have to be happy to have a good time.
