The artists were presented on the radio channel Hitradio Ö3 this morning at 08:05, with the broadcaster promising a broad spectre of artists on show. One of the most recognizable names among the nine acts to be confirmed are Trackshittaz, back for another try after last year's close call with Oida Taunz.
