Sommarkrysset 2011: the line-up

Whilst the two competing Allsång shows get all the attention in the Swedish media, there's one more Swedish summer TV show which is a must-see event for me, if only for its weekly musical guests. Like the other two shows, it's an open-air event (this time from Stora Scenen at Gröna Lund in Stockholm) so let's hope the rain stays away and the sun shines this summer in Sweden!

"Sommarkrysset" (TV4) boasts a pretty impressive line-up of guests for its summer 2011 run which starts next Saturday night. Here's what we can look forward to in the coming weeks.

25th June: Eric Saade, Sahara Hotnights, Patrik Isaksson

2nd July: The Ark, Jessica Andersson & Magnus Carlsson, Loreen

9th July: Brolle, Jedward, Kikki Danielsson

16th July: Christer Sjögren

23rd July: September, The Moniker

30th July: Eric Amarillo, Sanna Nielsen

6th August: Martin Stenmarck, Swingfly

13th August: Danny

20th August: Rolandz with Robert Gustafsson

Sommarkrysset always has the hottest lists of artists and it's still 50% of that hotness it'll get after the rest of artists will be confirmed.
This year summer TV-season starts so late, it's almost July. Two months and Idol will start. Do you miss Idol, Laura? I do so much, though results of the last one... No one has become a star. Year ago we had Rebound, Tove and second Erik Grönwall's album. This year only Olle's single and completely unnoticed Sassa's, I should write about it.

Yes of course I miss Idol and can't wait for the new series but I'm a bit worried that its days may be numbered, if the finalists can't make hit records.

Have you heard any news about Linnea releasing any new music? I see that Jay Smith has gone back to singing in his band so obviously he doesn't want to be a solo star, not too surprising really as there was so much 'scandal' around him last year. Hoping to hear much more from Olle.
