Sweden: First Act for Melodifestivalen to be Chosen August 28th

swedenSweden – Next year’s election process has also stared in Sweden. As is tradition, Sveriges Radio has begun its Svensktoppen Nästa competition. The event is a talent competition run by the regional P4 stations around Sweden. Each of the 25 districts will hold a semi-final. In early August a jury will choose 8 of the 25 finalists to go through to Svensktoppen Nästa. 

The Svensktoppen Nästa final will take place in Kungsträdgården in Linköping on 28th August 2016 and the winner may bag themselves a place in Melodifestivalen 2017. They will have to change the song that they sing though as of course according to the Eurovision rules the song must not be released for the public before 1st September 2016.

Last year Michael Fannon was the winner of  the Svensktoppen Nästa contest but the jury decided to send Smajling Swedes (SMILO) instead.
