Welcome to ABBAtalk! 2016 is off to a fantastic start. For the first time in more than 30 years, Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida spontaneously took to the stage to greet their fans in public, at the opening of Mamma Mia! The Party in Stockholm. Take a look at our video here! This year, ABBAtalk will host three separate events. Our first featured an on-stage interview with Judd Lander, who was the Director of Promotion at Epic Records in the UK and worked closely with ABBA between 1976 and 1982. On 25 June, ABBAtalk meets legendary jazz/rock guitarist Janne Schaffer, who performed on each of ABBA's albums as well as releasing 14 solo albums in his own right. This unique event is absolutely unmissable and tickets are strictly limited. Please scroll down to our Events Calendar for more details. 6 August is the date for the next ABBAdance disco. Our summer party has previously attracted ABBAtalkers from across the UK, central Europe, Scandinavia, Australia and North America! As usual, the evening event will be preceded by a lunchtime get-together on the very same day. A full day of ABBA's incredible music - what more could you ask for? Full details of all events can be found below. Also in 2016, The Official International ABBA Fan Club will celebrate their 30th Anniversary by moving their annual ABBA weekend to Stockholm, Sweden! Special events are being hosted at ABBA The Museum and at the newly unveiled Mamma Mia! The Party on the beautiful island of Djurgården.
