ABBA Voyage


ABBA Voyage opened in May 2022 at the purpose-built ABBA Arena, located at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Blending cutting edge technology, spectacular lighting and some of the most beloved songs ever written, ABBA take to the stage as digital avatars, backed by today’s finest musicians.

MAMMA MIA!

Since opening in London’s West End, the exhilarating smash-hit musical MAMMA MIA! has become a global phenomenon and been turned into two record-breaking movies – MAMMA MIA! The Movie and MAMMA MIA! Here We Go Again. Whatever age you are, you can’t help but have the time of your life at MAMMA MIA!


MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY

In 2016, “Mamma Mia! The Party” had its world premiere in Stockholm. Some years later, it opened in London and in September 2024 it’s time for Rotterdam. With 1 million+ guests already enchanted by sold-out party nights, immerse yourself in an evening of singing, dancing, and dining, all set to the tunes of ABBA.

POLAR MUSIC INTERNATIONAL
With over 60 years in the music business, Polar Music acts as the guardian of ABBA’s catalogue. ABBA’s music is enjoyed around the clock, all over the world. Not a bad result for a tiny label that started out with a group of Swedish folk musicians in the early 1960s
