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

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.

Last year, 18 out of 24 artists qualified for the final. The results were determined by jury voting.

This year, all participants will perform on each one of the 3 nights.
The format will be:

Night 1 (27th of December) – Contestants Night
Night 2 (28th of December) – Nostaligia Night
Night 3 (29th of December) – Eurovision Night
