Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 02 was the 2nd edition of the Danish music competition that selected Denmark's entry for the North Vision Song Contest 6. The selection had seven duels held in Herning. Julie Berthelsen won the selection with her newest single, "Butterfly". In North Vision Song Contest 6, it got the 11th place in the semi-final with 70 points and therefore failed to qualify. It marked the country's first non-qualification.
A few days after the results of the 4th edition, DR announced the 2nd edition of the selection. The eight songs of the selection were revealed on 17 and 24 September 2013. The edition started on 4 November 2013 and finished on 26 November 2013 with Julie Berthelsen being the winner.
The selection consisted of seven duels, divided in three parts: the quarterfinals with four duels, the semifinals with two duels and the final with one duel. The selection was once again held in, . In each duel, two songs were competing and one of them advanced to the next duel. From the quarterfinal duels, two songs advanced to the semifinal duels and from there two songs advanced to the final duel from where the winner was decided. As in the previous edition, the competing entries were chosen by the broadcaster after several artists submitted songs with only eight songs being selected this time. However, there was no foreign act in this edition.
Jyske Bank Boxen is an indoor arena, located in Herning, Denmark, that is part of the Messecenter Herning. It hosts concerts, basketball, volleyball, team handball and gymnastics competitions. It has hosted the 2010 European Women's Handball Championships and it will host the 2013 European Short Course Swimming Championships.
On October 1, 2010, Danish financial institution, Jyske Bank purchased naming rights to the arena. The arena's opening event, on October 20, 2010, was a concert by Lady Gaga, during The Monster Ball Tour, with Semi Precious Weapons as her opening act. The arena was also being considered as the venue for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014, before the contract was eventually won by B&W Hallerne, Refshaleøen in Copenhagen.
DR decided to change the format of the selection due to the not-so-successful first edition. The broadcaster decided to introduce duels. Eight songs will be competing in four duels and one from each duel will make it to the second part of the duels. The final duel songs will be the two winning songs from the second part of the duels.
All the competing entries of the edition were selected by the broadcaster. The songs of the edition were announced on 17 and 24 September 2013; four songs were announced on the first date and four songs on the second date.
