The highly anticipated P3 Guld Awards Show took over Gothenburg on Saturday, so take a closer look at the winners here!

As they do every year, the P3 Guld Awards provided a phenomenal musical spectacle at the weekend, giving us a knowing insight into what was popular with listeners of Sweden’s Sveriges Radio P3 throughout the past year, and who they’re tipping to be the biggest stars of 2016. As the hottest artists of Sweden’s pop scene descended on Gothenburg, a range of artists were honoured with awards, so here’s a closer look at some of the musicians that have a fancy new ornament for their awards shelves.

Ever since the release of her debut single ‘Younger’ in 2014, Seinabo Sey has been sending massive waves throughout the Nordic music scene, and her efforts were truly awarded as she took home the ‘Best Artist’ title at this year’s P3 Guld awards. Pretend, the singer’s critically acclaimed and long awaited debut album, shows what incredible talent lies behind that mesmerising voice of hers, so what better way to kick off a new year that with such a well deserved accolade?

Other winners included electro-house maestros Axwell & Ingrosso as the ‘Best Group’, and the award for ‘Song of the Year’ was handed out to Zara Larsson for her hugely catchy number ‘Lush Life’! Sabina Ddumba was honoured as the year’s ‘Best Newcomer’, and the striking Silvana Imam went home with the honour of being awarded the prestigious ‘Golden Microphone’ award, naming her the year’s best live artist.
