Welcome to Melfest WKND STHLM 2019
We are proud to welcome international fans to Stockholm for the Melodifestival final 2019! In the Swedish club we are delighted that a record number of fans are coming to Stockholm this year. For a couple of years we have worked to turn the weekend into something more than the final, and this year the event will be even bigger! OGAE Sweden is working with several partners, can give tips on hotel offers. Not least we hope our good relations with Swedish Television (SVT) can lead to many surprises this year!
So what’s Melfest WKND STHLM 2019 all about? Well, activities and special offers every day Thursday to Sunday in the week of the final. On Friday there will be a major pre-party with several fan favourites from both Melodifestivalen and Eurovision. This is a joint venture with one of Stockholm’s most experienced gay club organisers and will be the Friday party everyone wants to go to.
Saturday’s finalfest has a changed concept this year with a later start, buffet, warm-up, and at least two secret guestartist’s at the after-party. We hope that if you are coming to Stockholm for the final, that you will join the Swedish club’s parties.
