Musikhjälpen – Information in English
Musikhjälpen is a Swedish week-long live radio and TV broadcast. The mission is to create awareness and raise money for a humanitarian cause.
Since 2008, Swedish Public Radio and Public Television, together with help organisation Radiohjälpen, produce the week-long live broadcast, Musikhjälpen. Our goal is to raise awareness for a humanitarian catastrophe at the same time raising money for that cause.
The broadcast is inspired by the Dutch benefit event, Serious Request.
Musikhjälpen is held for one week in the middle of December. We broadcast around the clock for seven days. Each year, three famous personalities host the show and broadcast from a glass studio situated in a public space in a Swedish city. The hosts for this year have yet to be announced! The audience request songs, donating money to the cause while doing so. There are also a vast number of initiatives held around Sweden, each one with the mission to collect money for the cause. Musikhjälpen engages thousands upon thousands of people each year.
Artists and celebrities visit the studio to perform music, as well as auction off various items.
