Sweden: The first names of Melodifestivalen 2024! | Four acts are reportedly coming back to the contest!

Aftonbladet’s Torbjörn Ek, revealed a couple of minutes ago the first 4 potential Melodifestivalen 2024 acts! 

Usually, they manage to guess most of the artists that compete each year in the national selection procedure of Sweden for Eurovision Song Contest. 

After this year, when Aftonbladet revealed 24 out of the 28 acts of Melodifestivalen 2023, last year around this period of time, even before SVT announced the line-up officially, the first contestant names for Melodifestivalen 2024 just started to spring up. These artists are adding to the potential lineup that will compete in the hopes of getting selected to represent Sweden next year, at the Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Malmö, Sweden 

The following artists are, more or less known to the fanbase, each of them having competed more than once at Melfest in the past. 

The rock band “Smash into pieces” 

The experienced rock band “Smash into pieces”, formed in 2008 and since then they have released seven studio albums, are making their comeback at Melodifestivalen, after their massive success this year with the song “Six Feet Under“! Apart from their participation at Melodifestivalen 2023, the band’s guitarist Benjamin Jennebo, had participated as a writer back in 2020, as he co-wrote the song “Troubled waters” which was performed by Victor Crone and made it directly to the final. 

Dotter

Dotter , or Johanna Jansson , 36, as her real name is, competed in 2018 with “Cry” which went out in her heat, in 2020 she came second with “Bulletproof” and in 2021 she finished fourth with “Little tot“. Since then, she has had time to both become a mother and release music in Swedish, but according to information to Aftonbladet, the competition song next year will involve English lyrics once more.

Liamoo

Liamoo , or Liam Cacatian Thomassen , 26, will also appear for the fourth time next year. Liamoo won “Idol” in 2016 and debuted in Mello in 2018 with “Last breath” which finished sixth, in 2019 he competed in a duet with Hanna Ferm and came third with “Hold you” and in 2022 he finished fourth with “Bluffin“. According to information to Aftonbladet, he was also in the final discussions before last year’s competition.

Lasse Stefanz

Lasse Stefanz, with frontman Jönsson, aged 67, has competed once before in the Melodifestivalen, in 2011 with “En blick och nänting händer“, which went out in the second chance.

According to sources, it seems that some record companies and music publishers have received word of mouth about songs and artists, but that SVT has not yet sent out that many official confirmations. As it is still quite early, things can change until the confirmation emails go out to the artists.

We remind you that Melodifestivalen 2023 is scheduled to take place between February 3rd to March 9th, while SVT has received 2624 songs. The final list of Melodifestivalen participants will be published later this year, between end of November and beginning of December.
