OGAE Song Contest 2023: Participants and Lineup

The OGAE Song Contest 2023 has officially revealed its list of participating entries, marking the third time that OGAE Australia will host this prestigious event. This year’s edition will feature 31 songs in the competition.

Originating in 1986, the OGAE Song Contest stands out as one of the most successful Eurovision-affiliated contests. Annually, OGAE clubs (short for Organisation Générale des Amateurs de l’Eurovision, or the General Organisation of Eurovision Fans) are invited to submit songs that have not been featured in the official Eurovision Song Contest (ESC), Junior Eurovision Song Contest (JESC), or national finals.

The voting period for this year’s competition has officially commenced and will run until October 21st, with the winner set to be announced on November 25th.

In the wake of Australia’s victory in the 2021 edition with “Fly Away” by Tones and I, the country was slated to host the OGAE Song Contest in 2022. However, the contest had to be canceled for the year due to ongoing geopolitical tensions involving Ukraine and Russia. Consequently, Australia is now gearing up to host the event in 2023.


Here is the lineup of participating countries, with the corresponding links:
