It is now clear which artists will perform at SVT’s Victoria Concert on July 14th. The Victoria concert is a tribute to Crown Princess Victoria on her birthday, and this year the Crown Prince and television audiences were invited to performances from Linna Henrikson, Mamas, Petra Marklund, Anne Sofie von Otter and Oscar Steambridge. Additionally, Norwegian star Sigrid shares pre-recorded Norway songs. Performed by the conductor, Stefan Spursen, and the Augusti family.
– A special year like this where the Victoria concert should be performed without the usual crowd, it is fun and safe to be able to count on such a wonderful lineup of artists. I think it will be appreciated by the crown prince and the television audience, says Stefan Remer, responsible for the Victoria Days.
The Victoria Concert takes place at Borgholm Castle and is broadcast on SVT1 and SVT Play on Tuesday 14 July at 21:00.
