One of our favorite music sites – Scandipop – have announced that they will be hosting a Eurovision/Scandipop night in Malmo on the eve of the Eurovision Final. In cooperation with Moriska Paviljongen (also known as “Moriskan”, and this year’s official Euro Café) they will be hosting a club and concert night. Friday May 17th from 9pm until 5am there will be both Melodifestivalen stars and Scandipop music galore.
The night will feature Scandi Pop, Melodifestivalen, Schlager and of course Eurovision Music. If that was not enough they have confirmed 3 former Melodifestivalen contestants will be performing at the event.

Eddie Razaz who is a former Swedish Idol contestant and Melodifestivalen debuting artist this year with the song “Alibi”, will be the first guest performer at the Scandipop event.
Next performers are the “Stockholm Syndrome” girls. In case you may not recognise the name they have performed at Melodifestivalen under the guise of Love Generation with the songs ‘Dance Alone’ in 2011 and ‘Just A Little Bit’ in 2012.
