Spain is a notably different country in Eurovision to most of the rest. They are lucky enough to be part of the Big 5, so they can experiment. Fiercely proud of their musical tradition, we have seen them be the continent’s token appreciator for Latin music, as one would expect. This sometimes gets them a rough ride, they haven’t cracked the top 20 of the final since 2014 – and you think the British have had it rough. But with one of the longest histories in the contest, there’s enough to go on for questions, let’s take it away with our Spanish trivia quiz!
So You Think You Know… is a series that will arrive each Wednesday, each time focusing on a new active Eurovision country. We move alphabetically so the next quiz will be the immortal Sweden. In the meantime, enjoy our trivia quiz on Spain!
