Open Mic at Stampen
Stampen, home of the Big Time Blues Jam is a jazz, rhythm and blues bar located in old town Stockholm.

There is daily live music at Stampen and the Big Time Blues Jam takes place every Saturday afternoon. It is worth brushing up on your licks and riffs if you want to take part, and you can do this with a guitar app. Learning using an app is quick and easy, and you can do it at your own pace.
