With the start of the new Eurovision year, see’s the opening of the 2021 Eesti Laul submission period – which will end on Friday 6th November. Submitting Estonian language songs will cost participation of €25, while other language songs will cost participation of €75. Participation costs will double from Sunday 1st November. Charging participation will help Estonia with their participation fees at the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest.
If a Foreign Composer or Artist wish to take part, they must collaborate with at least one Estonian citizen or resident. Any Composer or Artist can submit a maximum of five entries. If Uku Suviste decides to submit an entry into the national selection, he will gain an automatic semi final spot after the cancellation of the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest.
The semi finals of Eesti Laul 2021 will take place on Thursday 18th and Saturday 20th February 2021. The final will take place on Saturday 6th March 2021. While the shows will be broadcast live as always, no decision on a live audience has yet been made due to the current Coronavirus pandemic.
