History Behind the ABBA Arena
ABBA Voyage is a groundbreaking virtual concert series which began on 27 May 2022, marking the return of the iconic Swedish pop group ABBA. The concerts bring to life avatars known as 'ABBAtars', which have been designed and rendered to resemble the band members from their 1977 heyday.
Stufish Entertainment Architects, who designed and constructed the venue, describes the venue as 'the world's largest demountable venue', and will be relocated after the show ends (in five years). The venue is located at London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The ABBA Voyage experience blends music, visuals and special effects to create a truly immersive atmosphere. It features live performances of ABBA's greatest hits and some new material from the band. The concert series promises to be an unforgettable experience for fans of all ages!
