WinterVision Song Contest 2022

Discussion in 'Eurovision' started by Mtrt, Apr 1, 2021.

  1. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has announced the introduction of the Wintervision Song Contest.

    Sweden will host the inaugural Contest in Jukkasjärvi during December 2022.

    Inspired partly by the Winter Olympics, the Wintervision Song Contest will take place once every two years and will be performed entirely on snow and ice.

    Local authorities in the Kiruna Municipality will create a spectacular temporary open-air venue for the Contest, the Snow Globen Arena, which will seat up to 2,000 spectators against a backdrop of glistening ice forests, frolicking reindeer and, of course, the aurora borealis.

    So far, 15 EBU Members have confirmed their participation with more expected to follow.

    As hosts, Sweden automatically qualify for the Grand Final alongside the ‘Frosty 5’ broadcasters from those competing nations with the highest snowfall: Norway, Russia, Iceland, Finland and Switzerland (Alps).

    Wintervision Song Contest participants:

    • Sweden (hosts)

    • Azerbaijan

    • Cyprus
