Spain: Βenidorm Fest 2024 is now dealing with a mass entries’ leak | The RTVE reaction!

Following the announcement of the 2024 Benidorm Fest line-up about a month ago, and the official release of the participating entries on December 14, RTVE is now dealing with a mass entry leak on X (former Twitter).

The leakage of the entries’ titles a few days ago was only the beginning; now, all but three entries have been leaked on social media. It all started on X, where several Benidorm Fest fans claimed to have already listened to the songs and were exchanging their thoughts on what they had heard.

It didn’t take long for users to start sharing the snippets -or full songs- via WhatsApp and, later, X, as the situation quickly spiraled out of control. In fact, Spanish fans are asking RTVE to release all of the songs as soon as possible in order to put an end to this saga.

RTVE’s reaction

The Benidorm Fest organizing committee and RTVE did not remain silent. They made it clear in a tweet that are even willing to take legal action against those who leaked the entries.

After what happened in the last few hours, RTVE’s legal services are collecting all the information to take legal actions that they consider appropriate to defend the interests of artists and the Corporation. Thanks for your cooperation. We keep working. See you on the 14th.

Benidorm Fest 2024

Despite this ongoing chaos, RTVE is expected to release the Benidorm Fest’s 2024 entries on December 14. Benidorm Fest 2024 will include two semifinals of eight on January 30 and February 1, 2024 as well as a Grand Final with eight competing acts on February 3.

The winner of Benidorm Fest 2023 and therefore the Spanish representative at Eurovision 2023 was Blanca Paloma with her song “Eaea”, which although being a favorite, finished in the 17th place.
