Eurovision 2018

#EUROVISION 2019 – who’s already said they are going next year and who might debut?

2019

Eurovision 2018 hasn’t even finished yet, but that doesn’t mean that preparations aren’t already underway for next year’s edition – wherever it may go!

Eight countries have already confirmed their participation in the next Eurovision Song Contest. These are:

SWEDEN

POLAND

SAN MARINO

SERBIA

ESTONIA

ISRAEL

NORWAY

SPAIN

We may also have a new country joining the Eurovision family for 2019. Liechtenstein in the process of fulfilling the criteria needed to obtain EBU membership and seems confident it can do this in time for the 2019 contest.

Similarly, Kazakhstan stated they were looking to take part as well, but the EBU stated in December 2017 that as Kazakhstan is outside the European Broadcasting Area, it is ineligible to enter the contest. There are also unconfirmed rumors of Andorra wanting to return to the contest after a decade-long absence. However, RTVA have stated they would require a government grant to cover the costs of participation and it is unknown if they can secure this.

At this stage, no other countries have confirmed their participation. It is expected that the majority of countries who took part in this year’s contest will return for Eurovision in 2019 too. We’ll keep you updated!

What do you think? Do you think any more countries will return or debut next year?

Let us know what you think!

    • Nice idea, but very unlikely. Most Arab states have laws that prohibit broadcasting Israeli content. That was why Lebanon couldn’t take part in 2005.

  1. so australia is inside European Broadcasting Area but Kazakhstan isn’t? It’s not that far from Russia you know..
