Gothenburg is the second-largest city in Sweden, after Stockholm, with a population of around 550,000 in the urban area. 

It hosts some of the largest annual events in Scandinavia: the Gothenburg Film Festival, music festivals Way out West and Metaltown, and football tournament the Gothia Cup.

Two of the most famous people from Gothenburg are actually fictional, but have become synonymous with "people from Gothenburg". They are a working class couple called Kal and Ada, featured in "Gothenburg jokes" (göteborgsvitsar), songs, plays and names of events.

Each year, two people who have significantly contributed to culture in the city are given the honorary titles of "Kal and Ada".

Andrew Berridge, viola player for Scottish Ensemble, took photos as the group travelled around Sweden on the Dancenet Sweden tour of Goldberg Variations - ternary patterns for insomnia (27 Jan - 6 Feb 2016). This was the second time that the performance had come to Sweden; it premiered in Stockholm on 17 September 2015.
