Hej, Sverige! The wait is almost over and the quest to find out who is going to follow Robin Bengtsson as the winner of Melodifestivalen 2018 is about to begin.
The long awaited Swedish national final starts this Saturday in the beautiful city of Karlstad. Amongst the acts is the return of fan-favourite Benjamin Ingrosso.
However, he is not the only one that will kick of the festivities. The Good Lovin’ star will be joined by Kikki Danielsson on her ninth Melfest appearance, dancer Sigrid Bernson, artist and athletics sprinter John Lundvik, television personality Edward Blom, 20 year old newcomer Renaida and Norwegian sensation Kamferdrops.
