Blekingska Nationen (Province of Blekinge student community) was founded in 1697 and is today one of Lund University's leading student nations concentrating on musical activities. The emphasis is on alternative music, and several well-known bands have performed on their stage.

Blekingska Nationen's Friday club, Indigo, celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2004, and it is this club that has carried the organisation forwards. Before the club was founded in 1994, the organisation had only 500 members. At the tenth anniversary of the club, this number had grown to 2000. Currently, the nation has around 1 200 members.
