As the summer comes closer, Stockholm gears up for one of Sweden’s yearly music landmarks, Allsång på Skansen, a popular Swedish sing-along show held at Skansen, open-air museum and zoo in Stockholm. This year’s Eurovision winner Loreen will take part in the event, along with other Melodifestivalen stars and personalities. Allsång på Skansen 2012 will take place every Tuesday from June 26th to August 14th and will be hosted by Måns Zelmerlöw.
Six of this year’s Melodifestivalen acts will appear at Allsång på Skansen this summer, as well as other nine performers linked with the Swedish selection. Loreen is scheduled to perform on July 10th. Other Melodifestivalen 2012 artists to attend are Molly Sandén, Dead by April, Björn Ranelid feat. Sara Li, Thorsten Flinck and Sean Banan.
In addition to this year’s finalists, some faces from the past will be heading to Skansen. Agnes, Magnus Uggla, Tomas Ledin, Darin and Cookies N ‘Beans have all competed in the contest. This year’s hosts Gina Dirawi and Sarah Dawn Finer will be closing this year’s sing-along with the 2009 presenter Petra Mede. Christer Bjorkman will be performing during a yet to be determined evening in July.
