Despite the fact that Eurovision and schlager are among the most popular music in Sweden, this type of music has been conspicuous by its absence in Sweden festival scene.
As Tobbe Ek and Aftonbladet reported, there will be a new one-day festival at Stockholm Olympic Stadium with around 20 of the biggest schlager and Eurovision artists, next May!
Entertainment and event manager Navid Kabiri has teamed up with Anders Boström, who co-founded Summerburst, and nightclub organizer Samin Adjoudani, and together they are behind Drömmen, which will take place on Saturday, May 25 in Stockholm. On stage there will be, among others, Carola, Charlotte Perrelli, Linda Bengtzing, Méndez, Jessica Andersson Kate Ryan and Army of Lovers who have already confirmed their participation at the festival.
Some of the Melodifestivalen and Eurovision artists are known for a handful of songs, but will they all do full concerts? Or how will the arrangement be? Navid Kabiri comments:
“We’re focused on the hits, these artists know the audience wants to hear them. This is Drömmen, it should be dreamy and not sleepy, but we also talk to the artists about what they want to do. It should be a tribute to them and to this music. Some will want to do a couple of songs and others will come with bands and do longer gigs. We will release more names as they become available.”
The Drömmen festival will take place at Stockholm Stadion on Saturday, May 25, 2024 and tickets go on sale on Tuesday, December 12.
