Hint Tip: ABBA

From their dazzling beginnings on Eurovision to their subsequent climb up the Billboard charts, ABBA left an indelible, platformed print on contemporary pop culture. Indeed, the Swedish foursome—soon to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame—now find themselves the subject of a new exhibit, ABBA World, at London’s Earl’s Court. Featuring album covers, paraphernalia (the helicopter from their Arrival album) and clothes (shiny cat dresses and ruffled gold lamé), the show rounds up the group’s decade-plus reign. Best of all, visitors can re-create the quintessential ABBA experience by shimmying next to Björn and co. on a holographic stage. Note to dancing queens: all interaction is recorded and accessible via Abbaworld.com, so make sure you’ve got that disco swagger down.
