The traditional festival “Sunčane Skale” will be held for the 18th time in Herceg Novi, Montenegro, on the 2nd and 3rd of July. The first night is reserved for the “New Stars” of the ex-Yugoslav music scene, where the winner will qualify for the final on the 3rd of July, and will join there all the music stars from the entire world who will be taking part.
Some Eurovision names also appear in the line-up of the final. Nuša Derenda (Slovenia 2001), Magazin (Croatia 1995), Marcin Mrozinski (Poland 2010), and Vlatko Ilievski (Macedonia 2011) will all take part in the final of Sunčane Skale, on the 3rd of July. There are also participants who took part in the Eurovision national selections of their countries, but didn’t win. Some of them are Rikke Normann (took part in the Norwegian Melodi Grand Prix in the last two years), Aleksandar Belov (took part various times in the Macedonian national selection), Andrej Ilić (took part in the Serbian national selections), and others. There will be participants from 19 different countries!
The winners of the last year’s edition of the festival were the Swedish group Qpid with the song “Under The Radar”
