Nomination period has started for this year’s Rockbjörnen (music prize awarded by Aftonbladet annually). 2 years ago we wrote about Roxette’s Rockbjörnen history and last year our collective voting for Marie was enough for her to be on the shortlist. Unfortunately, in the end she didn’t win the award, but now here is the chance to vote again. Since Rockbjörnen is focusing on live acts and Roxette is now on tour, we can vote easily. So, please, fill in at least the live band of the year and fans of the year boxes at the voting link. You can surely fill in other boxes, too. This year Aftonbladet introduced a drop down menu for those who find it hard to nominate a band / artist / etc. by themselves and if you check it, you can see they have Roxette on the list for the bands and Roxette fans on the list for the fans of the year. Yay!

Vote HERE each day until 22nd July!

If you can’t speak Swedish, we help you which boxes to fill in and how you can proceed with your voting:

  • Årets livegrupp = Live band of the year: Roxette
  • Årets bästa fans = Fans of the year: Roxette fans

After filling it in, click on ”Nästa” (= ”Next”) and fill in your name (first name & surname), e-mail address, mobile number, year of birth (födelseår) and whether you are female (kvinna) or male (man) or other (annat), then reply to the control question (e.g. 2 + 2 = 4). If you want to receive info and offers from Aftonbladet, leave the tick in. ”Tillbaka” means ”Back”, ”Rösta” means ”Vote”. It’s simple as that.
