Lisbon 2018

First pictures of Melodifestivalen 2018 stage revealed

The first pictures of Melodifestivalen 2018 stage were revealed today. This year’s stage will be the biggest one ever. 
68 LED-cubes
The performing area will be about 14 times 14 metres. At the widest, the stage will be 30, which makes it the biggest Melodifestivalen stage ever.
Because of its size, the stage has to be reduced in some of the arenas for the first time ever.
This year the stage will also have a hanging, diamond-shaped central piece. Its surface is also made of LED-screens.

The stage will also include a 20 meters long catwalk. The catwalk will be in a shape of a horseshoe. Some of the audience will be placed in-between the stage and the catwalk.
Unlike in recent years, the green room will be at the end of the arena and will be located among the audience on the floor.
The first semifinal of Melodifestivalen 2018 will take place in Karlstad on February 3rd. Sweden will choose their artist for Lisbon on March 10th.

I started watching Eurovision back in 2006, when I was only 10 and couldn't stay up to see Lordi winning. I attended my first contest in 2013 in Malmö. I'm studying journalism and I love music — you will probably never see me without my headphones on.
