Tonight’s first semifinal, like all shows, will be held in Stockholm due to the outbreak of the Omicron mutation in Sweden. The venue for the first semi-final of the Swedish national selection is the Avicii Arena, better known to Eurofans as the Globe Arena that hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in 2000 and 2016.

The first semifinal of Melodifestivalen 2022 will start at 20:00 CET and will last one and a half hour. You can watch it through the SVT frequency by clicking HERE.
