Rix FM Festival 2023 had its Stockholm stop during the Culture Festival, which meant they were able to fill the Gustav Adolfs Torg in front of the Opera House. And beside the huge crowds, the artists could rest their eyes on the Royal Castle and the Parliament House.
The line-up included a total of thirteen artists, and Norway had a strong presence with four artists. Loreen was undoubtedly the biggest star of the evening and they saved her for the last. But Omar Rudberg, Marcus & Martinus and Darin also got their fair share of screaming fans.
