Melodifestivalen 2023: Song submission record of the decade!

Submissions for Melodifestivalen 2023 are now closed and a whopping 2824 songs have been uploaded to the SVT platform. This is the highest figure in ten years! Now the jury, led by competition producer Karin Gunnarsson, will listen to the entries in order to decide which 28 songs will make the cut.

Incredible! Wow. I am so proud to be able to work with Melodifestivalen and that the interest for the competition is increasing. Participating in Melodifestivalen really has an impact. Many of the competing songs have become big hits. I think this is very exciting for the artists and authors.

A total of 28 entries will compete in Melodifestivalen 2023. The selection jury selects 14 songs from the submitted entries and the other 14 entries are selected by SVT during the autumn. Later this fall, it will be announced which songs and artists will compete in Melodifestivalen 2023.

Now the work begins with listening, sifting and preparing the next step in the selection process to produce a lovely and entertaining lineup. We are really eager to get hold of all the songs.
