Song submissions for Melodifestivalen 2022 closed last Friday. It has been revealed that 2530 entries were submitted, however this is down from 2747 last year.
Karin Gunnarsson, Producer of Melodifestivalen, had the following to say:
“It is incredibly fun to see how engaging Melodifestivalen is. For the past ten years, we have received an average of 2,500 applications each year.
I can’t help but think of the musical breadth that exists in our country and the joy of writing that makes Melodifestivalen a Swedish song treasure every year.
Like this year. Many of this year’s Mello songs are still streamed and several are played regularly on the radio.
It is always just as exciting to hear what has come in. It will be great fun to take part in all contributions and start working on a strong starting field that will compete in Melodifestivalen 2022.”
