Sweden’s most well known arena
Hovet is one of the most well known arenas in Sweden. It was inaugurated back in 1955 as an outdoor arena named Johanneshovs Isstadion. The specially designed roof was added in 1963, and in 1989 the arena was officially named Hovet.
Today Hovet is home ground to AIK Hockey and Djurgården Hockey but is regularly used for other events and concerts. Legendary artists such as The Beatles, Queen, AC/DC and Iron Maiden have lifted the roof at Hovet through the years.
