  • 170th FSC (July 2021) - Linköping, Sweden (RÖSTA)

    Välkommen tillbaka! Det är dags att njuta av sommaren i Sverige
    Welcome back! It's time to enjoy summer in Sweden

    We don't have far to travel this time as we just need to cross the Kattegut over to Sweden. This is the third time we have visited Sweden in the past year alone. It's the thirteenth time overall, which makes it the second most winning country after France. If you're sick of visiting Sweden by this point, well, you have this winning song by a certain flop ho to blame...
    We're in Linköping on this particular Swedish visit, which is slightly bigger than our last town of Kolding. When looking at attractions, there's quite a few difficult-to-pronouce place to visit like the Tradgardsforeningen (a park), Fenomenmagasinet (A children's museum), and Linköpings stadsbibliotek (a library). For my money, I'll probably visit the cathedral since it's 800 years old ans its story goes further back than that. If you're hankering for a museum, you could try the computer museum, which displays the first Pirate Bay server if you remember the days of their rampant copyright infringement. For nighttime entertainment, there is the intriguingly-named Hell Yeah Rock Club. But I think I'd rather enjoy the summer weather with some ice cream for lunch (yes, people, my lunch!) in nearby Söderköping.















    RULES

    01. This is a monthly contest, modeled after Eurovision. You need to have at least 10 posts to your credit to take part.
    02. You can pick any country in the world.
    03. The artist you choose has either to be a citizen of the country they'll represent or to have been born there. At least HALF of the people from your act must be from the country you choose.
    04. Your song must be under 10 years old. Eligible entries must have been released after January 1st, 2011.
    05. Eurovision entries are not allowed. Songs from concurrent Eurovision heats are not allowed either.
    06. The song cannot have been a UK/US Top 40 hit, as it would give it an unfair advantage.
    07. The song can be a remix.
    08. The song cannot be a cover version.
    09. If your song features a sample, please state it early enough, so the other contestants can decide whether it is acceptable or not by poll.
    10. You cannot vote for your own country.
    11. Discussion about one's favorites during the contest is NOT ALLOWED, as it has the potential to influence the voting.
    12. PLEASE try and choose a song not everyone would know, the point is to discover new artists.
    13. If a song becomes or is found to be ineligible at any time before the voting is over, it will be disqualified.
    14. Make sure you understand all the rules before you take part. You will need to devote about 2 hours of your time to this game to listen to all the entries at least once. Do a little research on your entry before you present it, be sure that it doesn't violate any rules, and check here to see if it has taken part before.

                                      Can we not monopolize or hijack a country time and time again; and permit others to venture through?

                                                Useless fact: I went to high school in this month's hosting city.
