It’s something Melodifestival fans are looking forward to every single year: the reveal of the stage design!
SVT and the stage designers try to make the stage more advanced and more impressive every year, so fans eagerly await what the team have come up with this time.
The stage designer in question is Viktor Brattström, an experienced stage architect who has been responsible for several Melodifestivalen stages as well as the praised stage for the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 stage in Stockholm!
The result is the biggest stage thus far! Apart from that, the keyword seems to be versatility. In his design, Viktor Brattström is aiming for freedom for the artists, as the stage can change to adapt to 40 different kinds of performances.
An example of that can be seen below, note however, that this example is not based on any of this year’s acts’ performances:
Something noteworthy in the set-up of the shows has happened, though: the in-hall green room has disappeared!
Christel Tholse Willers, Executive Producer for Melodifestivalen explains why:
This year, we’ve chosen for a historically proper green room where the artists can recharge and get ready. There, they get a fair chance to focus and prepare themselves for their performance
Melodifestivalen 2020 starts this Saturday with the first heat at 20:00 CET in Linköping!
