We may be less than ten months away from the next Eurovision Song Contest, but preparations are already underway for Spain. This afternoon, the press conference for Benidorm Fest 2024, Spain‘s national selection for Eurovision, took place.
Dates of the festival
During the press conference the dates of Benidorm Fest 2024 were also revealed. As in the previous two years, it will include two semi-finals on the following dates:
- First Semi-Final: 30 January 2024
- Second Semi-Final: 1 February 2024
The participants who qualify from the two semi-finals will compete in the Grand Final on 3 February to represent Spain in Malmö.
Participants’ announcement and changes
The announcement of the 16 Benidorm Fest participants will be made on 11 November as part of the Latin Grammy Awards, which this year will be hosted in Seville under the auspices of RTVE and TelevisaUnivision.
Benidorm Fest is evolving and growing year after year. The number of entries submitted to date has far exceeded the number of entries of the previous two years.
The evolution of Benidorm Fest is also reflected in the recruitment of a music camp in September. This will give artists the opportunity to meet and compose songs which may or may not end up competing at Benidorm Fest.
Spanish interest in Eurovision is growing, and it seems that they now want to win more than ever before.
