“If you wanna be my lover, you have to get with my friends…” Last week-end I partied on songs by the Spice Girls, the Backstreet Boys and Gwen Stefani. It was the “Absolut Flashback” party in Kårhuset Kollektivet – or KK – during which were played songs from the 1990s and the 2000s. And I think it was one of the best parties I have attended in Linköping so far.
What is KK?
KK is part of Linköping’s “Kårservice”, that is to say the association in charge of organizing student life in LiU. It is a pub/night club located in the city centre were a lot of events take place. For instance, that is where where ESN, the Erasmus student organization, organizes International Karaokes and every Thursday, it is possible to participate in pub quizzes!
You can also just chill and drink beers with your friends.
As a student, you can also work in KK – however I don’t have anymore details about this since I haven’t been experiencing it myself.
Just like Flamman, you can only attend KK’s parties if you have a student ID. Parties are usually organized by specific student organizations, and you have to buy your ticket a few days before the party. The tickets sale is often very crowded, and it is not rare to queue for a long time before getting them. People sometimes even start queuing an hour before the actual tickets release!
Usually a ticket to a KK party costs between 80 and 120kr (8 to 12 euros). Way more expensive than Flamman, but in my opinion it is worth it: I had a great time at the Absolut Flashback party!
