Swedish broadcaster SVT have revealed the stage design for the upcoming Melodifestivalen 2020. The stage will present the 28 entries in the competition, one of which will win to represent Sweden at Eurovision 2020.
Viktor Brattström is responsible for the stage design. This is Viktor’s 14th time designing the stage for Melodifestivalen, and was also a stage designer for Eurovision in 2013 and 2016. Victor’s design aims to follow the themes of the Eurovision 2020 stage of openness with a large scale and maximum flexibility. 2020 will see the largest stage in modern times and the largest surface area for animated content in the contest ever. The large LED screen has been removed in favour of a cloth backdrop for projections. The 35×6 metre backdrop will be animated by 8 state-of-the-art projectors to produce more than 220 square metres of animated content.
