Teddybears, best known for their massive bear masks, are 25-year veterans of the Swedish music scene. We are proud to announce that the iconic band will perform the official Åre 2019 World Championships song.

 The song, entitled Young, handsome & fast, reflects the band’s unmistakable sound style and does not disappoint the fans of the band or skiing; if official World Championships songs had their own medal race, Young, handsome & fast would surely have made the podium. 

Teddybears, formerly known as Teddybears Stockholm, consists of Patrik Arve and brothers Joakim and Klas Åhlund. The band with a cult-like following has scored a number of hits, such as Cobrastyle, Hey Boy and Hiphopper, and worked together with a number of international stars, are some of the most unique performing artists in Sweden. 

Speaking about cooperation; Teddybears are working with Rakel (artist name for the local Åre singer and former skier Julia Johansson) to cooperate on the official song. 

Teddybears will be performing at the Åre 2019 Medals Plaza on Tuesday 5 February at 19.00 CET but will already visit Åre on 15 December when they will play at Night Club Bygget. The official Åre 2019 song will be released in mid-January 2019.

Where life can be lived - reflections of a volonteer19.2.2019 09:34:46 CETPressmeddelande

Yet another Alpine World Championship in Åre has come to an end. The third through the years. Skiers, visitors and volunteers have lived and breathed the World Championships for weeks. The organization has done the same for years. Beyond all the races that have been raced, the medals that have been awarded, something else has taken place. Perhaps the thoughts have been thought before, maybe they have been awaken when being here. Thoughts of the real meaning of life, or rather, thoughts of what kind of life we want to live. Thoughts of where our children should grow up, of where our everyday lives should take place. Where life should be lived.
