Based on the official statement released by Kringvarp Føroya (the Faroese broadcaster), we learn about the country’s intention to apply for EBU Membership
Last week, Reiley represented Denmark at Eurovision 2023.
He performed the song “Breaking My Heart” and finished 14th in semi-final 2
Reiley is a Farose artist and was the first one to participate at Eurovision.
It might be the catalizator for the country to claim membership.
Faroese national broadcaster KvF is working on the required details to submit an application.
Ivan Niclasenת KvF CEO commented:
Our ultimate aim with this application is independent Faroese participation in the Eurovision Song Contest. EBU membership is the first step. If we succeed with that, our next aim is Eurovision. This contest is currently for independent states only, but perhaps we can obtain some sort of associate membership first, and then we can work from there. By next spring, I expect we will have a much clearer idea of our chances
The Faroe Islands are a self-governing nation under the external sovereignty of the Kingdom of Denmark. The Faroe Islands have exclusive competence to legislate and govern independently in a wide range of areas.
By definition, The Faroe Islands are allowed to submit EBU membership.
