Portugal will be present at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 in Malmö, Sweden.
A few minutes ago it became known through the official account of the Festival da Canção on Instagram that the country of the Iberian Peninsula will compete this time on Swedish soil, something that had not happened after the 1992 Competition and then in Malmö. For the record, Portugal due to poor results and financial reasons had decided to stay away from the 2000, 2013 and 2016 competitions which coincidentally took place in Sweden.
