The Anti-Hibernation Project and Docklands Present the ELLY AWARDS for 2017.
ELLY AWARDS is Stockholm's techno gala. A celebration of the underground scene, the joy it brings us and the love it stands for.
2017 was the year when more than ever the women of our society showed us some of the oppressive attitudes, unfair practices and degrading ways we treat each other. Their strength and courage should be an inspiration for those of us who see injustice to fight it in any way we can.
Our community strives to treat people fairly, be open minded, respect others boundaries and live free.. During this years event we will attempt to highlight some of the women who work hard to keep this thing going.. Starting with our all Female DJ line up. It won't change the world but it might help to set the tone in our little corner of it.
2017 was also a year where the interest in our music and parties escalated. This brought delighted newcomers but also the authorities continued harassment of our culture. A lot of parties were closed down, many of them even before they opened. Now more than ever we have to fight for our right to dance until the morning.
This is the thank you event to those who make that possible. This is when we take time away from all our bullshit to reflect on the people, places and passion that makes the Stockholm underground scene our home, our refuge and our legacy.Vote for your underground hero. Show your love for the many hours they spend making this thing happen... Put on your special outfit and cheer them on at the ceremony... We don't do this to put anyone down. Just want to say thank you to the people who have done that little something extra that's made our year that much better...
