Melodifestivalen 1973 was the selection for the 14th song to represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest. It was the 13th time that this system of picking a song had been used. 10 songwriters were selected by SVT for the competition. The final was broadcast on TV1 but was not broadcast on radio.

The third place act, Agnetha, Anni-Frid, Björn & Benny, returned to take part in Melodifestivalen 1974 under their new moniker ABBA.

This year (1973) was completely erased from the Swedish archives.
