As the next Eurovision season begins, so does the submission period for the Swedish national selection, Melodifestivalen.
Swedish broadcaster SVT have announced that the submission period for Melodifestivalen has begun, and it will continue through to the 17th of September. A total of 28 acts will compete in Melodifestivalen 2019 with one of which already selected!
As you may remember, the first competitor was chosen through the program P4 Nästa and that was The Lovers of Valdaro. They will compete in one of four semi-finals with the other selected acts. The format of Melodifestivalen will remain the same with qualifiers from those four semi-finals either entering the second chance round or advancing directly to the final.
Around this time of year we usually see Swedish artists take to social media hinting at their potential participation at Melodifestivalen, so keep an eye out on your favourite Swedish artists on social media!
