P3 (Sveriges Radio P3 or pe tre) is one of the four main radio channels operated by Sweden's national publicly funded radio broadcasting organization Sveriges Radio. Its output is oriented towards young people from junior high school age to 35. The P in P3 originally stood for Program (Programme) but today has no official meaning and is simply a name.

P3 is broadcast nationwide on FM (also digitally via DAB in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö, and Luleå) as well as being streamed on the internet. It also operates the web- and DAB-only channel P3 Star.
