Winning song "Vita vidder" by Family Four

Melodifestivalen 1971 was the selection for the 12th song to represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest. It was the 11th time that this system of picking a song had been used. 1164 songs were submitted to SVT for the competition. There were five semifinals during the Hylands hörna programme. Family Four, Tommy Körberg and Sylvia Vrethammar performed one song in each semifinal. Family Four won all five semifinals, so all five finalists were performed by them. The final was broadcast on TV1 but was not broadcast on radio.
