p3 guld

The prestigious P3 Guld Awards will be handed out in Gothenburg this Saturday, so take a closer look at the nominees here!

The annual P3 Guld award show is hosted by Swedish radio station Sveriges Radio P3, and honours the best and brightest picks from the Swedish music scene in nine categories: ‘Artist of the Year’, ‘Best Group’, ‘Newcomer of the Year’, ‘Dance Artist of the Year’, ‘Hip-Hop/Soul Artist of the Year’, ‘Pop Artist of Year’, ‘Rock/Metal Artist of the Year’, ‘Best Song’ and the ‘Golden Microphone’ for the best live act of the year.

Winners are picked by Radio P3’s listeners as well as a special jury for four of the nine categories, meaning that the final winners list is guaranteed to be packed full of the finest Swedish sounds on offer!

With such an extraordinary year of Swedish music behind us, it’s impossible to tell who the winners will be! We’ve closely studied the list of nominees however, and we’ve believe we’ve found some hints as to who will emerge victorious…

Songstress Seinabo Sey and outfit Amason are both leading the list with three nominations each, while Zara Larsson and Avicii are both nominated twice for ‘Pop Artist of the Year’ and ‘Best Song’. Sabina Ddumba also seems a likely candidate with nominations in the categories ‘Best Song’ and ‘Newcomer of the Year’.
