The surprise was taken out of the festivities today, as Swedish magazine Aftonbladet had released all 30 names in the weeks leading up to today’s big official reveal. This year, the paper correctly names 29 of the 30 artists, only missing Engmans Kapell, instead thinking Natalie Carrion would take part.

We can expect to find out more details in the coming weeks, although the songs will not be released until each Heat. In 2024, the Melfest tour will focus on cities in the south of the country:

  • Heat 1 — 3rd February 2024 — Malmö — Malmö Arena
