This Saturday evening, in prime time, the artists will participate in a special program presented by journalists Julia Varela and Rodrigo Vázquez. In this program, we will discover the profiles of each artist, their motivations for appearing at the Benidorm Fest, their musical careers and some clues about their musical proposal that will be released in the coming months.
The first edition of the Benidorm Fest was a complete success in Spain. In addition to the high following of the event and its impact on the press, the musical careers of all the participants experienced a moment of glory full of sales and concerts in which the “Sold out!” sign was hung. The culmination of the edition’s success came in May, when the winner of the Benidorm Fest 2022, Chanel, won third place in Eurovision with the song “SloMo”.
