RTVE has released the 16 songs for Benidorm Fest 2024.

In November RTVE held a press conference to reveal the 16 artists chosen out of the 825 submitted songs that will perform in this year’s Benidorm Fest. The songs are now released and you can listen to them below.

The competing artists are:

Almácor – Brillos platino

Mantra – Me vas a ver
Marlena – Amor de verano

Yoly Saa – No se me olvida

12 of the songs were leaked on twitter this year, but now we have the 16 songs officially released.

Just like last year, Benidorm Fest features a wide variety in the 16 songs, showcasing diverse musical styles and genres. Jorge González is the only one out of the 16 participants that tried to participate for Spain before; he took part in the national finals of 2009 & 2014 with the songs “Aunque Se Acabe El Mundo” and “Si Yo Vengo A Enamorarte”. Some fans maybe know who tried to participate for San Marino in 2023. Will Jorge González finally get his chance to represent Spain, or will a new artist get the ticket to Malmö?

Benidorm Fest just like last year will have two semi-finals with 4 artists who will qualify out of the 8. The artists that qualify will be chosen by 50% jury, 25% demoscopic jury and 25% televote. The two semi-finals will take place January 30th and February 1st. The final will be held on February 3rd and will reveal the Spanish participant for Eurovision 2024.

Listen to a recap of the 16 songs here:

Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest

Spain debuted in 1961 and have since then participated 62 times. They won the contest twice, back to back in 1968 with ‘La La La…’ & 1969 with Vivo Cantando.

Since 2000 Spain has been a member of the ‘Big 4’, the biggest contributing participants. In 2011 the ‘Big 4’ became the ‘Big 5’. This means that unlike regular participants, Spain doesn’t have to take part in the Semi Finals of the contest, and qualifies automatically to the grand final.

Spain has finished last place 5 times in the contest in 4 different decades. 3 of which with 0 points.

2 years ago Channel collected the bronze medal for her country, and Blanca Paloma got 17th with a true Spanish song, which created a lot of hope in the country of winning the contest for the first time in 54 years

Who do you think will win Benidorm Fest 2024 and go on to represent Spain in the grand final in Malmö? And who are your favorites? Vote in the poll and let us know in the comments what you think!
