RTVE, the Spanish national broadcaster, has announced details of the 2023 edition of Benidorm Fest.
Mónica Naranjo will host Benidorm Fest 2023 (with further Hosts to be announced), from the Palau Municipal d’Esports l’Illa de Benidorm. An Opening Ceremony (Sunday 29th January) will be followed by two Semi Finals (Tuesday 31st January & Thursday 2nd February) and the Grand Final (Saturday 4th February).
Sixteen entries will participate instead of fourteen, like in the inaugural Contest in 2022. Four acts will qualify from each Semi Final, allowing eight acts in the Grand Final. Applications open on Thursday 1st September and will close on Monday 10th October.
Before Benidorm Fest 2023 takes place, all sixteen participants will participate in a Christmas show on TVE.
