San Marino RTV announced on the Una Voce Per San Marino Instagram page that they have already received 270 submissions for the 2024 contest, with the deadline for entries on January 10th 2024.
270 submissions from 17 countries.
The window for submissions opened last month, alongside news of a change to the format, which will see eight ‘big artists’ be invited to the contest, qualifying directly to the final, where they’ll compete alongside a further eight acts who will compete in the semi-final stages.
San Marino RTV allow submissions from artists both inside and outside of San Marino, and submissions have already been received from 17 countries across the world, including Mauritania, Argentina and the United States.
Casting to take place in San Marino
Whilst the online submissions window is ongoing, there will be the first stage of in-person casting for the third edition of the contest, which is taking place at the San Marino Outlet Experience between November 10-12.
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.
