The Melodifestivalen returns to The Two Brewers in London

today1st February 2024


Brewersfestivalen returns on 9th March with a screening of the live final direct from Sweden. Last years event was a Melfest banger and the Two Brewers Backroom shook to the sounds of Loreen’s victory.

Melodifestivalen is one of the biggest Eurovision song contest finders in Europe. A six-week competition of non-stop Swedish bangers to find the ultimate Eurovision song contest entrant. It’s the annual song competition held by Swedish public broadcasters SVT in order to find their Eurovision entry. They have produced seven winners and twenty four top five placements. Not to mention the careers that the competition has launched. It is estimated that 4 million people watch Melodifestivalen every year over half Sweden’s population.

Last year saw Queen Loreen win and then bag a double win at Eurovision! Past years have also seen Mns Zelmerlw, Charlotte Nilsson and, of course, ABBA, crowned and sent to the campfest that is – Eurovision. Melodifestivalen must be doing something right Sweden has notched up seven Eurovision wins and this year it’s 50 years since ABBA won both Melodifestivalen and Eurovision. So this will be a double celebration this year.

Two Brewers will hold a live screening of the competition from 7 9pm, with pre-screen hosting and entertainment by Linus Karp, our very own Swedish cabaret star. You, the audience, also get to vote on your favourite to find the Brewersfestivalen winner, then stay and party to all the best Melodifestivalen and Eurovision bangers with DJ James Rawson (Push the Button collective).

Linus is the creator of the smash hit, award winning shows ‘How to live a Jellicle life life lessons from the 2019 hit movie musical Cats.’ and ‘Diana the untold and untrue story’ currently on tour. Plus his current sell out smash hit; ‘Gwyneth Goes Skiing’ at the Pleasance theatre.

Linus will provide true Swedish entertainment and translations at key moments of the competition.
