Nationaldagen in Skansen

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.

Lots of lovely Swedishness going on's really got me in the mood for Allsång-season and Victoriadagen. And Stockholm is looking as beautiful as ever.

Damian, you might be interested to know that Gunilla's song was a cover version of an old Anders Glenmark hit -

Thank you Laura! I knew it's gonna be some sort of classic, weird that I never heard about her before, she doesn't seem to be newcomer.

I agree with you, it all brings so much of summer atmosphere, if you visit summer Sweden once all these shows give you loads of nostalgic memories, you can almost feel like you're there in a crowd.
