Sweden: Melodifestivalen 2015 rules announced!

Melodifestivalen is one of the most popular national selections - and SVT, the Swedish national broadcaster, has already announced some rules regarding next years edition. A call for songs will be made from 1st September to 16th September. The Swedish broadcaster wants to see more female involvement and they also want to see more songs in the Swedish language. Swedish is a beautiful language so why are there so few Melodifestivalen songs in Swedish?

Executive Producer of Melodifestivalen and Sweden’s Head of Delegation, Christer Björkman, said:
We are so proud and happy about the bronze in the Eurovision Song Contest (2014). That feeling we take with us in our work with the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. As usual, we call for songs in different languages, in different genres and in different styles. Diversity and variety is an important part of Melodifestivalen
