Albanian broadcaster RTSH has announced that 20th September 2023 will be the date for the final of Junior Fest 2023.
Bojken Lako who is Director of Programs at Radio Tirana explained his plans for this year’s Junior Fest. This year’s contest is planned to be more expansive this year and will take the singers through more of the music industry.
The singers will be working with young composers to create their songs for Junior Fest, with Radio Tirana helping to produce the songs. These singers and composers will be collaborating with established producers and composers in Albania to refine their songs.
Before the final of the show singers will be invited to perform their act on Radio on Tirana 2 and participate in additional social media competition.
Bojken Lako added:
“The young people who will be selected will have the opportunity to rehearse in the studios of Radio Tirana to improve their ‘live’ performance, where they will work with a vocal coach to perform as well as possible on the final night.”
Applications for Junior Fest 2023 will be open until 25th August 2023.
Kejtlin Gjata represented Albania at Junior Eurovision 2023 her song “Pakëz diell” finishing in 12th place with 94 points.
