Eurovision 2021

🇫🇮 #FINLAND: UMK 2023 On February 25th

Yle, the Finnish national broadcaster, have announced the date of UMK 2023 – their national selection for the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, in Liverpool.

UMK 2023 will take place on Saturday 25th February, in Logomo, Turku. Seven acts have been chosen from 363 applications and these will be revealed on Wednesday 11th January. The seven competing songs will be revealed between Thursday 12th January and Friday 20th January.

Tapio Hakanen, Head of the UMK jury & YleX Head of Music, had the following to say:

“Expectations for this season are extraordinarily high after last year’s stunning success. The seven finalists include familiar faces and new, up-and-coming talents. We have, among others, the best dance song in UMK history sung by an unbelievably strong new singer, a song that just oozes sexuality by a well-known artist, a heartbreakingly beautiful ballad by one of Finland’s biggest export hopefuls, well-known and up-and-coming bands, and one of the strongest rap bangers in UMK history.”
