Musikhjälpen = Music Aid is a fundraising event that has existed in Sweden since 2008. They send live around the clock for 144 hours on the radio station P3 and tv station SVT / SVT Play. Together with Radiohjälpen they help draw attention and raise money to a hidden humanitarian disaster; there is a new theme in Musikhjälpen every year.

The theme for this year’s broadcast is “Children in war have the right to go to school.” Read more about this topic.

The program consists of three well-known TV host locked up in a studio, called the glass box, in a square in a Swedish city. This year is the turn of Örebro, December the 12th to 18th with  Kodjo Akolor, Josefine “Little Jinder” Jinder and “Howlin'” Pelle Almqvist from the band The Hives. During the week the hosts will be visited by dedicated people who contribute in different ways to fight for this year’s theme. Performers and famous people come to visit to get involved, and the thing that binds the whole show together is the audience’s song requests that all contribute to the collection.

I look forward to this this great event each year!
