With only one week left to the first semi-final in Malmö the stage of Melodifestivalen is presented. The stage designer Viktor Brattström explains the stage as a “floating futuristic stage in a world of light columns�.

Viktor Brattström have been the stage designer for Melodifestivalen for a few years back and was also apart of creating the stage for Eurovision 2013.

The big difference this year is more colours, light effects and a moving décor. Another change is that the greenroom will be moved from the back to the right edge of the parquet. The placement of Greenroom is mostly to get some variation.
