Benidorm Fest 2024: Lineup, tickets and how to get there

The Benidorm Fest is a musical event organised by RTVE (Spain’s national TV), whose aim is to select the artist and song that will represent Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest. The selection consists of three galas: two semi-finals and a final, in which both the public and an expert jury will choose the Spaniard representative for the festival each year.

After the success of the first two editions, Benidorm Fest 2024 is back and better than ever. This edition will feature 16 -not 18- great performers competing for a ticket to Malmö 2024.

When is Benidorm Fest 2024?

Benidorm Fest 2024 will be held from 28th January to 3th February at Palau d’Esports L’Illa in Benidorm. The festival will take place on four different days: Sunday 28th January will be the opening gala, Tuesday 30th January the first semi-final, Thursday 1st February the second semi-final and Saturday 3rd February the grand final.

The festival can be followed on TV. The two semi-finals will be broadcast at 22:30 on RTVE La 1, while the grand final will be broadcast at 22:00 (local time).

Among this year’s innovations was the implementation of a music camp in September 2023, which sought to encourage the creation of new songs, with the participation of both national and international composers. This camp did not directly influence the selection of songs for Benidorm Fest, but it did contribute to creative development in general.
