RIX FM Festival is an annual festival arranged by RIX FM, a radio station. Since its formation in 2000, many big names have performed at the festival, including superstars like Pink, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna.
Seeing as the festival is hosted in Sweden, plenty of Eurovision and Melodifestivalen participants have also been a part of the event.

Furthermore, Jessica Andersson – one half of Fame (Sweden 2003) – will perform as well. Another artist with Eurovision connections is Darin, who was one of the interval acts in 2013.
