Just imagine it; The golden Benidorm beach, a light breeze in the air and the biggest artists of the first Benidorm Fest on stage. Sounds pretty good right? Well that is exactly what you can expect from the event that will take place on July 19th.
We don’t know for sure, but it is very likely Chanel will also take the stage to perform her song SloMo which gave Spain their highest performing Eurovision song since 1995.
What else do we know about Benidorm Fest 2023?
The news of this huge event is not the first details we know about the Spanish selection for Eurovision 2023.
Earlier this year, RTVE en de Generalitat Valenciana have already revealed that Palau De L’Illa will double the capacity for the new edition and fans will be welcomed to the Benidorm Fest Village.
Since they are not expecting new COVID- measures next year, they will make Benidorm Fest 2023 a big spectacle for fans filled with music and joy.
A little history
The first edition of Benidorm Fest was a huge success! The watching numbers were amazing and it got Spain very excited for the Eurovision Song Contest. This year’s Eurovision Song Contest remains one of the most watched edition in Spain yet!
And the Benidorm Fest formula also really worked, with Chanel reaching the best result Spain has had since 1995 (third place).
