AllsĂ„ng – all you need to know!

AllsÄng PÄ Skansen, the Swedish event that Petra will be hosting this summer, will kick off tomorrow! It will be broadcast live at 20:00 GMT+2 on SVT1 and will be the first episode in a series of eight shows. A new website has been launched at svt.se/allsang and features an interview with Petra that roughly translates as follows.

“This is going to be crazy fun”

SVT can today proudly present artist Petra Marklund as the new host of AllsĂ„ng PĂ„ Skansen. Petra takes over from MĂ„ns Zelmerlöw and thus becomes the fifth presenter of SVT’s popular summer tradition.

Petra, how did you react when you got the question from SVT?

– Honestly, I was completely in shock and thought I heard wrong. But then it started to become clear more the way they had envisioned. Now I think this is going to be crazy fun!

How do you think that SVT have thought? Why did you get the job?

– First and foremost, I think SVT was looking for something unexpectedly, and it made the course one can safely say. Another reason I hope is that I have a foot in the world of songs and a foot in modern pop music, says Petra Marklund. When I was little we always spent our summers on the country by Sjösala, next door to Evert Taube spirit, and dad always played his and other songs at home while mom sang to them. So I have well learned a few things from there.

What has been your relationship with AllsÄng PÄ Skansen?

– I’ve been twice in the program and to stand on Sollidens scene in front of the very enthusiastic audience is a giant kick!

Any AllsÄng favourite?

– Then I say SĂ„ Skimrande Var Aldrig Havet.

And what show host do you think has been the best?

– I grew up with Lasse Berghagen in that role, so I have to pick him. In addition, we got to know each other during the filming of SĂ„ Mycket BĂ€ttre when we both were there. I’ll have to ask him for some advice before the premiere. Then I have to give MĂ„ns praise as he renewed the program management job in a fantastic way. He was awesome!

How will you put your mark on AllsÄng? What is your thing?

– First and foremost, I will be myself. I’ll try to pass on the AllsĂ„ng tradition my own way and let my love for good music in all genres be seen. Then we will see how it will shape up. It is now the work begins.

Finally. What is your biggest fear for your new summer job?

– That I’ll pass out in the middle of the live broadcast.

Mathias Engstrand, software clients for entertainment on national TV are very pleased to be able to tie Petra to AllsÄng.

– Petra satisfy all our desires. She is deeply rooted, both artistically and musically, with a warm and close relationship to the program. Petra and AllsĂ„ng are made ​​for each other, says Mathias.

Also the Skansen manager is very pleased and looks forward to a glorious sing-along summer.

– We are very pleased to welcome Petra Marklund welcome to Skansen and Solliden street scene this summer, said John Brattmyhr, Skansen manager. The combination of the new scene and new AllsĂ„ng leader, which is also the first woman to get hold of the job, ensure a really good sing-along summer!
