Albania: RTSH Reveals “Festivali i Këngës 60” Dates

As always, Albania will select its Eurovision entry and artist via the traditional music festival “Festivali i Këngës”. This year, the festival will celebrate its 60th edition.

Earlier today, Albanian broadcaster RTSH revealed the dates of the festival:

The festival will include 3 shows:

  • The first night will be held on Monday the 27th of December 2021
  • The second night will be held on Tuesday the 28th of December 2021
  • The grand final will be held on Wednesday the 29th of December 2021

Therefore, Albania will probably be the first or second country to reveal its entry for Eurovision 2022 (Depending on the dates of the Czech selection which will be held in December 2021 as well)

In a few years, the performances were split into 2 semi-finals (the 2 first nights of the festival).
Afterward, the qualifiers from each night qualified for the final.
However, in other years (like the last edition), all the contenders performed in all 3 shows.
The second night was dedicated to acoustic versions of the songs.

The list of competitors will be published at a later date, probably by the end of November 2021.
We can expect a list of 20-26 artists.

Anxhela Peristeri represented Albania at Eurovision 2021.
She performed the song “Karma” and ended up in 21st place in the grand final:
