Fantasifestivalen 18 is the eighteenth edition of the Swedish music competition Fantasifestivalen that selects Sweden's entry for the North Vision Song Contest 18.


It was originally planned that 7 acts will compete in each heat, 2 acts would qualify to the final and 2 to Andra Chansen. Andra Chansen would have featured 4 duels, which means the final would have consisted of 12 songs.

After there was a bomb threat during the semi-final 1 show, SVT announced later that only one final with 12 songs would be held.

Semi-final 1 (Cancelled)

The semi-final was cancelled after there has been a bomb threat during the semi-final 1 show. The threat was later declared as wrong, but all semi-finals were cancelled due to the delay caused by the situation. Ace Wilder and Violet Days would have qualified from this semi-final, and therefore get to participate in the final.
