This Is What Happens at 10PM Every Night in Sweden

They’re Swedish as hell and they’re not going to take this anymore.

The student-populated Flogsta neighborhood of Uppsala, Sweden has a tradition. Every evening at 10pm, they commence with the “the Flogsta scream.” It’s some sort of a communal primal scream therapy, or possibly, a remembrance ritual of a 70’s student suicide. Whatever it is, it’s quite impressive.

Watch it start. Watch it echo. Watch it rattle and howl.
