Swedish Broadcaster SVT have just released the first images of what the Melodifestivalen 2013 stage will look like. 

Viktor Brattström and Frida Arvidsson are the designers tasked with developing this year’s Melodifestivalen stage. They began work on the project in the Summer of 2012 and have already constructed a test model on the SVT studios. 

The scene for each performance will be primarily set by  3 LED illuminated beams that arch over the stage.

There will be a giant catwalk linking the Green Room (situated at the very back of the arena) to the stage – which we are led to believe will be longer than the one in Baku

The artistic plan is that when the Artist is announced the lights in the hall will be darkened. The entrance of the act – via the catwalk – will be to an “extreme backlighting”. The artist will select what music they want to be played as they walk along the catwalk towards the stage. 

A short video conveying how the artist is feeling – nervous excitement would be my guess – will be shown. At this point the artist will walk to an extremely lit area called “The God‘s Finger”, where the camera will follow them onto the stage.

SVT want to place greater emphasis this year on the artist making their way onto the stage and into their performance. 

Take your seats and enjoy the show.
