Eurovision 2022: Dardust, Benny Benassi + Sophie & The Giants will perform as an interval act in the first semi-final!

After the announcement of Diodato performing in the interval act of the first semi-final, the Italian producers have confirmed another interval act programed for the first semi-final.

The “Dance of Beauty” will see the Pala Olimpico transformed into a giant disco, to celebrate a sound that the Italians have had great success and influence with, outside their own borders  through the years – dance music!

Since the late ‘70s both Italo-Disco and Italian House Music have had a stronghold over dance floors and radio airwaves the world over, with their beats soundtracking the night lives of generations.

Dardust, one of the most successful producers, will perform during the First Semi-Final accompanied by DJ/producer Benny Benassi and British band Sophie and The Giants, with the participation of conductor Sylvia Catasta.

Dardust, known in Italy as Dario Faini, is one of the world’s most popular pianists. His music has accompanied some incredibly international events such as the Superbowl, the NBA All Star Game and the Olympic Games. His influence is known to the fans of Eurovision by the runner-up of the 2019 contest, with “Soldi”which he co-wroted and produced for Mahmood.

Marco ‘Benny’ Benassi is an Italian producer and popular touring DJ who is widely regarded as a pioneer of electro house, a genre arguably brought into the mainstream by his 2002 summer club hit “Satisfaction”. Since then, he has remixed singles by big-hitters like Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Shakira, and produced songs for Madonna, John Legend and, recently, one of our Eurovision Song Contest 2022 hosts, Mika.
