Last July, RTVE announced the revamped return of the former Benidorm Song Festival. Not only to select their Eurovision 2022 representative, but also to celebrate local Spanish music and artists. The festival is organised in collaboration with RTVE, the Generalitat Valenciana and the Benidorm City Council. As well as this, the broadcaster has signed a four-year agreement with the Generalitat Valenciana for Benidorm Fest to run until 2026. After 886 submissions, RTVE presented a press conference to reveal the 14 competing entries and launch the festival. Recently the broadcaster also announced the back-up scenarios and safety precautions for the acts in the event of positive Covid-19 tests.
