Loreen’s arrival at Stockholm Arlanda airport could end up in chaos. According to Aftonbladet, a thousand fans will greet her. “She won’t have to arrive at an empty arrival hall,” says Martin Sundin, member of Svenska Melodifestivalföreningen, a society devoted to the Eurovision. This afternoon, Loreen boarded a plane from Baku. She will have a short stop over in Vienna, at 19.10, finally arriving at Arlanda at 22.25 tonight.
Anyone who wants to greet the ‘Euphoria’ star is welcome to do so in the international arrivals hall at terminal 5.
Today, a cover of ‘Euphoria’ performed by the Royal Swedish Army band spread like wildfire via social media.

Svenska Dagbladet reveals that SVT and the record label Warner are planning a welcoming party to honor the victory. It’s scheduled to take place at either the Royal Garden (Kungsträdgården) or Skansen in Stockholm on Tuesday or Wednesday.
