Benidorm is once again getting the glamour of past years back as the popular resort at the Spanish Costa Blanca will host several galas to choose the new Spanish Eurovision Song Contest 2022 candidate. The Spanish public broadcast network RTVE will organize the various galas, a semi-final, and a final in Benidorm, and broadcast them on television throughout Spain.

In that way, some of the glamours of an international festival return to Benidorm. From 1959 to 2006, Benidorm hosted the Festival Internacional de la Canción de Benidorm, which was inspired by the successful Sanremo Music Festival in Italy. This music festival still exists and chooses the Italian Eurovision Song Contest candidate every year. The Benidorm International Song Festival was an annual singing competition that took place every summer and was organized to promote Spanish music and the seaside town of Benidorm.
With the galas, semi-final and final to choose the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 candidate, this glamour of bygone times has to return to Benidorm. The setup will be different because all artists can register this time, after which a choice is made of singers who can participate in the shows and finals. The eventual winner who will represent Spain in Italy in 2022 is to be announced early that year.
