About Wilmer Apelgren

Gothenburg native Wilmer Apelgren released the single “Kommer alltid hit igen” (Always Coming Back Here) in conjunction with Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary. The song is a tribute to the city he grew up in and always returns to. Wilmer has a choir background – gospel and harmony singing are recurring themes in his soul, pop, and funk-influenced music. Now, he takes the stage in Bältespännarparken during the inauguration of Jubileumskompassen.
