Now it’s time to reveal the 31 acts, besides the already-known group Eko, that will battle through four semi-finals, a second chance show, and a final for the grand prize of representing Sweden in Copenhagen in 2014.
The participating artists, songwriters, and composers will be revealed in two parts. First, on Tuesday, November 26 at 9.50 CET, SVT will have a press conference revealing the acts of the first two semi-finals in Malmö and Linköping. Then, on Thursday, November 28, the acts for next two semi-finals will be revealed. Both press conferences will be streamed live on svt.se/melodifestivalen.
The reveal marks the end of a long selection process done internally by SVT, after they received a record-breaking 2,628 submissions for consideration. “A long process is finally over and we have made the decision on all 32 acts. The line-up we are going to present is incredibly inspiring and cool,” said show producer Christer Björkman to svt.se.
