According to always valid Aftonbladet newspaper’s article, all the competitive shows of Melodifestivalen 2021, the show through which Sweden selects its representative for the Eurovision Song Contest, will be held at the capital city, Stockholm.
Traditionally the shows of Melodifestivalen are held in various cities all around the country with the final taking place in Stockholm. All the same, given the pandemic situation of COVID-19, there will be no Melodifestivalen tour in 2021. Initially this scenario was the back up plan of SVT but it will be implemented eventually, since neither the municipalities are eager to spend millions for shows that might not take place, nor the SVT wants to jeopardise its reputation by imperiling the public health.
Moreover, there are no decisions yet regarding the place of the show, whether it will be held in a studio or in a stadium. Questions arise as far as the tickets issuance is concerned. Aftonbladet contacted the porject manager of the show Anette Helenius, who commented:
“We have nothing to comment at the moment. We will let you know as soon as we have something to announce”
Last but not least, according to the reputable newspaper, the presenter of the event will be the beloved of Swedish television David Sundin, who will not be alone on stage. Who will accompany him, we will get to know in due course.
