Traditional celebration of Nationaldagen in Skansen wasn't broken this year and once again some represantatives of Swedish pop-elite have stepped on the stage to please the audience with some old classic Swedish hits. So what you're risking to miss ignoring this show?
- Peter Jöback singing half-acoustic cover of Gyllene Tider's "Juni, Juli, Augusti" with Cookies'n'Beans;
- Amazing Timoteij making lovely folk-performance with "Sommarpsalmer";
- Charlotte Perrelli uniting with Magnus Carlsson to sing "Nygammal vals" that represented Sweden at Eurovision-1966;
- Gunilla Backman with nice schlager "Han har blommor i sitt hår" (we don't know where it came from but it's good) and later with another song "Sov du lille svensk";
- opera-fellow Markus Pettersson with "Nu är jag pank ock fågelfri";
- pop-sensation Erik Hassle with classic Björn Skifs's cover "Härligt, Härligt Men Farligt, Farligt" and Timoteij providing backing vocals;
- and not to forget loads of Swedish summer warmth and joy.
