Per Gessle to sing for the Swedish Crown Princess

STOCKHOLM – Every year on July 14th and since 1978, the Swedish Royal Court celebrates the “Victoriadagen” (Victoria’s Day) in Borgholm, in honor of the Crown Princess Victoria’s birthday.

  This year is this event’s 25th anniversary and a great party is being arranged: artists like Per Gessle, Peter Jöback and Robyn will perform for the Princess.

  Kay Wiestål, who together with SVT’s producer Göran Winberg, is arranging the event, is very glad for the fact that he has been able to book Per and Robyn for the event, “I have tried to book Roxette and Robyn many times, but that was hard, they are so controlled by their record companies,” Wiestål explains.

  In addition to the artists mentioned above, Lisa Nilsson, Sanne Nielsen, the trumpetist Magnus Johansson, the illusionists Stefan Odelberg and Peter Glyt will also perform at the party.
