These are the Melodifestivalen 2019 host cities!

As usual, each show of Melodifestivalen will be held in a different city next year!
Traditionally the final is held in Stockholm but the four heats (deltävlingar) and second chance round Andra Chansen change city nearly every year and have been held all over Sweden the past years.

This year it will be like this (with the venue inbetween brackets):

Heat 1 – February 2: Göteborg (Scandinavium)
Heat 2 – February 9: Malmö (Malmö Arena)
Heat 3 – February 16: Leksand (Tegera Arena)
Heat 4 – February 23: Lidköping (Sparbanken Arena)
Andra Chansen – March 2: Nyköping (Nyköpings Arenor Rosvalla)
Final – March 9: Stockholm (Friends Arena)

Anette Helenius, Project Leader for Melodifestivalen, says:

We always look forward to seeing our viewers in arenas all over the country and these hosting cities and audience have also welcomed us with open arms in previous years.
