I am hearing that Sweden is almost a cashless society and everything can be paid for by credit card.....even to the extent that several places do not accept cash. Is this correct or should I get a pocketful of Krone? Advise from Swedish fans appreciated!

In Copenhagen I did like the boxes in front of the venue, where people could leave their bags, jackets, …
Are there similar boxes around the Friends Arena? It´ll be colder than last week and I have a standing ticket for the concert. Woulnd´t wanna a carry around my stuff all evening long. Anybody knows?

Cheers, Fillmore
Id imagine the venue having a cloackroom of somekind.
Theres no way we are supposed to carry all our coats inside, or enter with only t-shirts. Its damn cold already.

More or less true. You can use credit card everywhere, I can't come up with places that don't accept credit cards. Maybe if you want to buy something in a small store you have to use cash.

Weather forecast for Thursday doesn't look too good at the moment. Wave that rain stick, Keith!

Hi Manofwealthandtaste (we've met btw - I am the Scot in the Hamburg IORR 10 Group we were both a part of thumbs up )

I've been to Stockholm for shows twice in recent years - The Stones on 14OF at the Tele2 and Paul McCartney at the same venue the following year. I used debit cards only both times. Everywhere accepts them - even all the hot dog stands at Metro stations. I drew no cash on both visits. I' had similar experiences in Oslo, Copenhagen & Helsinki. Scandinavia is very much ahead of the curve when it comes to universal debit & credit card acceptance.

That said, a handful of shrapnel for cloakroom tickets etc would do no harm.

The Friends Arena website says that "system cameras" are not allowed. I interpret that as meaning a professional camera with detachable parts. Therefore, small pocket cameras should be fine. I'll probably ask the promoter just to make sure.

They also do have a bag check which opens at 3 PM.

According to the Swedish Wikipedia,"systemkamera" is "kamera med utbytbart objektiv", which means a camera with detachable lens. So yes, we should be fine with pocket cameras smiling smiley

[sv.wikipedia.org]

If I were you, I would not ask the promoter - their instruction is clear and it might only bring them to the idea of changing it. I will print out the instructions and if there is any problem at the entrance (which I am sure there will be not), I would show it to the security.

Uber question

I'll be traveling from the airport to Fotografiska for a full day abligation. After that I'll need to check into my hotel and then on the the Friends Arena.

Is this do-able per Uber?
Are Taxis affordable?
Is the Public transport well enough organised? or
Should I take a rental car?

I can not speak for the promoter of course, but I am pretty sure you are fine with this one. I have a similar one myself and I will take it

Use your credit card. You can use kronor but yes there are places who won't accept cash.

Taxi Arlanda Airport - Stockholm is up to 400 SEK with a reliable company.
But ask for the price first! Watch out for unreliable ones. Otherwise you'll pay way, way more...

Does anybody know whether there will be a seperate No Filter Pit entrance to the arena? I have never been there and from the pictures I assume that there are "gates" through which one enters some perimeter pavement around the arena and then there are entrances A, B, C.... My ticket only says "Gate 1," which I guess applies to all kinds of standing tickets, so I hope I won't have to queue with the whole GA sector. The arena webb page says that with standing ticket one can use both gate 1 and 2 no matter what is printed on the ticket, but I hope the NFP line will be somehow separated. Any idea how it will be?

I was wondering about the same thing, Happy24. I guess we'll only find out on the day of. My NFP ticket also just says "Gate 1".

The email received today said you first enter the "Gates" and pass through security, and only then you go through the "entrance".

Probably not much help with the pit question but a map of the different "gates" and "entrances" can be found here:

The No Filter access usually goes with the floor access areas.

seems like it since information have been sent out about that all standing areas will have access to the pre-party inside

Got a mail in Swedish. As far as I can understand they open at 17. Right?
