Benidorm Fest

In July, RTVE announced that a modernised successor of the Benidorm Song Festival will select their entry for Eurovision 2022. The festival will be organised in collaboration with RTVE, the Generalitat Valenciana and the Benidorm City Council. The broadcaster has also signed a four-year agreement with the Generalitat Valenciana for Benidorm Fest to run until 2026.

Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest

Spain first appeared in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1961 in Cannes and came back to every contest edition since without skipping one. The country managed to win twice for 2 years in a row: in 1968 and in 1969 while hosting the contest in Madrid.

In 2021 it was Blas Cantó, who represented Spain with his song “Voy A Quedarme”. The artist came 24th in the Grand Final. Earlier he was also selected to perform with an entry “Universo” for 2020 edition, which unfortunately, was cancelled due to the pandemic.
