SVT, the Swedish national broadcaster, has unveiled the Allsång på Skansen 2020 acts. The Swedish summer songfest is held annually at Stockholm’s iconic Skansen Park.

Eurovision fans in Sweden and overseas will be thrilled as a grand line up of former Eurovision and Melodifestivalen acts are set to grace the Allsang pa Skansen stage this year.

This year’s Allsang pa Skansen will be slightly different from previous years, it will be recorded with no audience in place. A great  line up of popular Swedish artists have been invited to perform whilst Sanna Nielsen will host of the event for the fifth consecutive year.

Sanna Nielsen (Sweden 2014) says:

It will be great fun to once again host Allsong pa Skansen, singing together, spreading joy and love across the country.

The 2020 Melodifestivalen  winners The Mamas and Sweden’s latest music sensation Newkid are set to perform at Allsang pa Skansen’s very first show on 23 June.

Miss Li, Mando Diao, Eva Dahlgren, Lena Philipsson, Estraden, Erik Lundin and Victor Leksell will also perform on the Skansen stage during this summer.

The artists will perform exclusively for the audience at home, due to the current COVID-19 restrictions there will be no audience at the event.

Per Radelius (SVT Project Manager for Allsang pa Skansen) says:

We hope that the warmth and joy of Sanna, the orchestra and the guest artists on stage will continue to reach the TV sofas, just as it usually does.

In addition to the performances, this year’s Allsang pa Skansen will be bringing together and paying a tribute to artists throughout Sweden.

Per Radelius adds:

We let the program tie Sweden together for a little while. Tradition and recognition are perhaps more important than ever and it feels clear that singing is truly a unifying force for all of us.

Allsang pa Skansen will be broadcast every Tuesday from 23 June- 11 August at 20:00 CET on SVT 1 an at SVT Play. The show will run for a total of 8 weeks from June- August.
