RTVE to make Eurovision announcement on July 22nd

On July 22nd, the Spanish broadcaster RTVE will announce news regarding their Eurovision Song Contest participation in the seaside resort Benidorm.

This news comes after the RTVE president, Josรฉ Manuel Pรฉrez Tornero, announced that the broadcaster is going to take Eurovision 2022 “very seriously”.

Ximo Puig, President of the Valencian Government (where Benidorm is situated), tweeted on July 18th: “We are working with RTVE so that Benidorm can be a meeting point for what we need most now: music, Europe and diversity.”

Due to the location of the announcement, there has been speculation that the Festival Internacional de la Canciรณn de Benidorm may return after a 15 years absence. This was based on the world renowned Sanremo Music Festival, but unlike the Italian festival, this has not been used to select the Spanish Eurovision entry previously.

Do you think Spain could be trying to emulate the success of their Big 5 counterpart with a similar selection format? Or will this announcement be something completely different? Either way, we’re ready to listen to what Spain have to say, and hopefully this early start for the 2022 contest will get the Iberian nation ahead of the game.
