We had the chance to have a little chat with our #Melfest host David Lindgren in Malmö. He already hosts the big Swedish show for the second time in a row. He’s still very excited about his job, but we also talked about possible new music.
Xtra interview with David Lindgren
David told us, that it’s a lot of fun doing the show alone, rather than with two other hosts last year. This weeks interval act is his favorite interval act. It’s a very personal opening act. When you host it alone you get the love and the hate, David says. Otherwise, it’s still a lot of fun. He has a great team and hosting is what he wants to do at the moment. He is confident in his job. Moreover, he is realistic, that with more than 3 million viewers, he can’t please everyone.
Hosting or singing
He would love to represent Sweden one day in Eurovision, but at the moment it is all about hosting for him. He would love to host more galas like this or maybe “Allsang på Skansen”. He recorded a lot of music already, but he does not know when he will release it.
We can’t wait to hear more about David in the future! Thank you for your time and the interview.
