Confirmation of the ticketing approach is due in the coming months.
Who will enter?
Following the cancellation of Eurovision in 2020, it is unclear who will enter in 2021. There are a number of options available.
Same songs and performers rolled over to 2021(The EBU have confirmed that 2020 songs will no be eligible for entry in 2021.
- Same performers, new songs
- New selection process begins
- Artists & songs decided on a country by country basis.
Some countries have announced their intention to send the same artist in 2021 including Spain, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Greece, Switzerland and the Netherlands. However these artists were selected internally which makes this approach possible
Other countries such as Sweden and Italy have long standing contests where their Eurovision entry is selected. In fact, Italy’s selection competition predates Eurovision. Sending the same artist could be more complicated for these countries as it would impact these contests.
I think it’s likely that each country will select their own path for the contest in 2021.
I will update this page as and when there are further announcements. Be sure to check back for further information.
