Rockbjörnen's candidates are revealed!

This year Rockbjörnen seems to collect more pop-names than rock ones. Ola, Anna Bergendahl, Oskar Linnros, Salem al Fakir, Eric Saade, Kent, Mando Diao and foreign Tokio Hotel, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber look especially on fire. I don't even have a clue how Justin Bieber got to (as I thought) Swedish category but seems like this guy has really powerful fanbase in Sweden. Linda Sundblad is going to be host of Rockbjörnen and you can watch interview with Rock-bear and her here.

Nice post. A lot of great music for sure.
Did you know that before the Rockbjörnen winners are awarded we run something called Live-Löpet. It's sort of a digital festival with 7 online concerts starting today. The concerts can be visited from all over the world and are streamed live thru an virtual stage where the audience can chat using Facebook connect, request a song, clap their hand etc. The best part is that the artists can follow the interaction live from the stage and make comments regarding this. This is a great way to see Swedish stars live without making the long way over here.

Mando Diao is first up and the concert starts today, the 17th of August, at 8:55 PM CET (20:55 Swedish time). Tickets are free of coast and can be booked here

Other artists are Robyn, The Ark, Eric Saade, Salem Al Fakir, Ola and Anna Bergendahl.
