The 41st Birthday - 14 July, 2018

Alexander Rybak and Peter Jöback sing for the Crown Princess

Peter Jöback and Alexander Rybak are two of the artists who celebrate Crown Princess Victoria at Borgholm's Sports Arena on 14th July.
Kalle Moraues is the program leader at this year's Victoriadagen concert, the 40th in the scheme.
Besides musical artist Peter Jöback, on stage will be also Alexander Rybak, who won the European Song Contest 2009 and has the chance to do it again this year. He competes with the song "That's how you write a song".
From this year's Melodifestivalen (music competition which determines the country's representative for the ESC) participate artists Jessica Andersson, John Lundvik and Emmi Christensson, and on the stage is also rising star Nova Miller, who has John Legend as her mentor.
- It's a wide and nice artist group, says Kay Wiestål, who organizes Victoriadagen together with IFK Borgholm.
- This year we are not just celebrating our Crown Princess. Victoriadagen celebrates 40 years, continues Kay Wiestål.
It is not yet clear who will be this year's Victoria Scholarship Laureate, but after the Swedish successes in the Winter Olympics, there is a lot of candidates.

Organizer Kay Wiestål got in December a letter from the court, where king Carl Gustaf, queen Silvia, Victoria and Daniel confirmed their attendance at the concert:
- The royal couple, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel come here to Öland. It feels fantastic. Then we'll see how it happens to the rest of the family, there are always some more coming, says Kay Wiestål.

The tickets have been on sale from 14th December

Some great artists this year: Peter Jöback played again The Phantom at the The Phantom of the Opera in Broadway at its 30th Anniversary for some months this year. And John Lundvik, one of my favourites, who sang at the concert also in 2015.

After 40 years, Kay leaves Victoriadagen

It is said that it is Öland's single most important event every year. And after 40 years, Kay Wiestål now reveals that Victoriadagen concert this summer will be the last for the legendary organizer.
- It's time. Now others have to take over, says Kay Wiestål.
Kay Wiestål told the message in connection with the opening of this year's summer exhibition at Solliden.
Kay Wiestål has had a very good and close cooperation with the Royal Family for 40 years.
The fact that his friend PO Amnér passed away last autumn has played a role when Kay made his decision.
- We had talked about doing this 40th Victoriadagen together, says Kay Wiestål.
For Öland, the significance of Victoriadagen can not be enough highlighted. It is the day of the year when Sweden's eyes are directed towards Öland. For many, Victoriadagen is also synonymous with Kay Wiestål, founder and developer of the day together with PO Amnér.
As soon as the legendary organizer with all his contacts resigns, comes worry about what will happen to Victoriadagen in the future?
Kay Wiestål gives calming message.
- There are others who will take over. I will present them in connection with Victoriadagen this summer, says Kay.

Victoria delivers again Victoria Scholarship at the concert in Borgholm. This year, Victoria Scholarship is awarded for the 40th consecutive year.

This year's Victoria Scholarship is awarded to cross country skier Stina Nilsson.
The jury's statement:
"Stina Nilsson is one of the foremost Swedish athletes in cross-country skiing. She has in recent years demonstrated her talent and ability both in national and international competitions. During the past year, Stina has shown outstanding achievements that further certify her place in the World Elite. During the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang in 2018, Stina took her first Olympic gold in the women's sprint, contributed to two Swedish Olympic silvers in a relay and sprint, and ended the Olympic Games with a bronze at 30-kilometers in classic style. The jury agrees that this year's Victoria Scholarship Laureate is a distinguished and representative representative of her sport in and outside the ski track."

Barometern Sport received an exclusive interview with Stina Nilsson after the news were released.
- Oh, this feels very big. When I look at who have received the scholarship earlier, this is really honorable, says Stina Nilsson.
On July 14th, the Scholarship is awarded by Crown Princess Victoria in connection with the birthday celebration in Borgholm. Stina Nilsson is now happily changing her plans for a visit to Öland.
- I will bring the whole family with me. We are going to holiday in Öland and go sightseeing. This will be so fun, says Stina Nilsson.

There will be a nice surprise when Ingemar Stenmark attends Crown Princess Victoria's birthday party Victoriadagen on Öland this summer. In a press release, Victoriadagen writes:
"We are pleased to announce that Ingemar Stenmark honours the celebration of Crown Princess Victoria's birthday on July 14, 2018 with his presence. Ingemar Stenmark was named as the Victoria Scholarship recipient when the prize was awarded for the first time in 1979".
Then, in 1979, Ingemar received a prize from the king himself.
- Stenmark is one of the really big names and an important person in his sport, clearly it's cool right he's coming. I know that the royal family thinks so too, says Victoriadagen's Kay Wiestål.

The former Victoria Scholarship winners are always welcome to Victoriadagen concert. Peter Forsberg and Christian Olsson have attended in many years.

In 2013 the king and queen held a reception in Solliden for the Victoria Scholarship recipients on 15th July. Five years have gone and Victoriadagen celebrates its 40th anniversary, perhaps there will be a reception this year too?
