Eurovision Eurovision 2024 Sweden

Sweden: Here are the 30 acts competing in Melodifestivalen 2024

SVT, the Swedish broadcaster has revealed the 30 acts that will compete in Melodifestivalen 2024.

After Loreen’s historic win in Eurovision, Sweden is the host country for the contest next year and the interest in Melodifestivalen 2024 is even bigger than before. All the songs and artists competing in 2024 have been presented.

It feels incredibly fun to be able to tell you about this year’s competing entries. There are several artists hungry for revenge, popular returnees, exciting upstarts and the audience will be met by expressions that we have never heard before in Mello. Melodifestivalen must contain something for everyone. In 2024, viewers will be treated to a wonderful mix of party and glamour, grand and closeness – both when it comes to music and artistic expression on stage. In Mello, anything can happen and the strength is found in the fantastic breadth. Sweden’s party starts in February and everyone is invited!
