Preparations are now well underway in San Marino for Eurovision 2024, as broadcaster San Marino RTV opens the submissions window for Una Voce per San Marino 2024.
Details for Una Voce per San Marino 2024 revealed
Una Voce per San Marino 2024 has returned for another year thanks to an agreement between the Sammarinese government, the broadcaster and production company Media Evolution. As with previous editions, artists from any nation can submit an entry through the official Una Voce per San Marino website.
However, a change in the format will see so-called ‘Big Artists’ return to the stage. Eight ‘Big Artists’ will join another eight that qualified from the semi-finals to fight to represent the nation in Malmö. The artists will be personally invited by Media Evolution to compete in the show.
In 2022, nine ‘Big Artists were’ invited to compete in the show, performing alongside nine unknown artists that had qualified through semi-finals. Achille Lauro, a ‘Big Artist’ who had participating during the Sanremo Music Festival just weeks prior, emerged victorious with his song “Stripper”. The inclusion of ‘Big Artists’ was scrapped for the 2023 edition, but will now return for 2024.
Una Voce per San Marino 2024 is set to take place throughout February 2024, with the final scheduled for the 2nd of March. The final will take place at the Teatro Nuovo in Dogana, which played host to previous editions. A professional jury will be responsible for who will represent San Marino in Sweden next year.
San Marino’s Eurovision journey
As one of the smallest countries in Europe, San Marino made its debut in the competition in 2008 with Miodio and the song “Complice”. Since then they have participated in the competition 13 times (3 of which where they qualified for the Grand Final), and their best result was in 2019, with Serhat and “Say Na Na Na”.
Italian band Piqued Jacks represented San Marino in 2023 in Liverpool with the song “Like An Animal”. The band performed in the second semi-final, but unfortunately didn’t qualify for the Grand Final. Overall, San Marino placed joint-last, receiving 0 points from the televote.
