Sommarkrysset (pronounced [ˈsɔ̂mːarˌkrʏsːɛt]; "The Summer Cross") is a Swedish television program that is broadcast live from the Gröna Lund amusement park in Stockholm during the summer. It was first shown on 3 June 2005.[1]

The TV show became famous for their early bookings of music artists such as Lady Gaga, Dua Lipa, Rita Ora, Jason Mraz, Ava Max who later went on to gain global success.

The program consists of live performances by famous artists in front of a live audience while viewers can call in and win a certain amount of money. To have the chance to win this money, the viewer first has to figure out a word which is derived by entering the answers to questions (one letter in each box) on a piece of graph paper with 5x5 squares like a crossword.[2]

The program was created by Peter Settman's Baluba Productions and is produced Settman's Baluba Television.

The Lotto draw is usually broadcast live with Ulrica Bengtsson as a presenter, although others have presented the draw at times. Annika Duckmark has also been a regular presenter.
