As we head into summer, that means it’s time for Sweden’s beloved sing-along shows. The lineups of Allsång på Skansen and Lotta på Liseberg have just been announced — and both feature plenty of familiar faces from the world of Melodifestivalen and Eurovision, including 2021 winners Måneskin.
The lineup of Allsång på Skansen was announced by Sanna Nielsen. She will again host the show, her last big role before she takes maternity leave ahead of the birth of her first child. Sanna was also joined by Eurovision 2018 star Benjamin Ingrosso, who will feature in the seventh episode.
The lineup is loaded with big names from Sweden’s Eurovision history. As well as Benjamin Ingrosso, we’ll also see performances from Eric Saade, Loreen, Arvingarna, Charlotte Perrelli and of course Rotterdam star Tusse.
And fresh from her Oscar nomination, “Husavik” singer (and former Melodifestivalen act) Molly Sandén will also make an appearance.
There are also familiar faces from recent Melodifestivalen shows. Anis Don Denima & Sami, and Frida Öhrn will be there, while the incomparable duo Eva Rydberg & Ewa Roos will serve “Rena rama ding dong” realness.
This year Allsång has also attracted plenty of big Swedish names from the international world of pop. Alternative rock singer Eagle-Eye Cherry, popstar Darin, electro-pop artist Tove Styrke, and folk-pop duo Smith & Thell will all perform.
And it wouldn’t be a singalong show without an audience. Sanna Nielsen confirmed that Allsång will be allowed a live audience at the Skansen showground — but smaller than usual. Swedish health regulations allow an outdoor audience of 500, with small audience groups spaced at least one metre apart. Last year’s show had no live audience.
