The ESV2015 Conference Dinner will take place at Kajskjul 8, a venue located in the harbor area in the city center. Kajskjul 8 was built on the quays along the railroad tracks around 1870.

It is a building with a lot of interesting history, nowadays used for events and dinners.

Dinner includes:
3 course dinner including beverages, and a professional, entertaining journey through the Swedish music history.
