Eurovision fans suffering from Post-Eurovision Depression need their summertime music festival fix, and the most recent salvo came courtesy of Belarus. From July 9 to 13, the city of Vitebsk staged its annual Slavianski Bazaar. As tradition dictates, it included a competition for adult and child singers. In the past those competitions have been starting points for Eurovision stars including Ruslana, Petr Elfimov and Zeljko Joksimovic.

Eurovision stars

As ever, some of our dearest ESC stars performed. Belarus’ Teo and Alyona Lanskaya were there, as was Norway’s Belarusian-born Alexander Rybak. These stars and starlets went all patriotic by performing the song “Made in Belarus”. Get it?

There were also plenty of artists from Eurovision national selection season. Among them was Sweden’s OLA, who competed at Melodifestivalen 2010. You can check out his performance below. Eurofans will also remember Aidan, who finished behind Safura at Azerbaijan’s national selection in 2010, and Diana Brescan and Valeria Pasha, who both competed in Moldova’s Eurovision selection earlier this year.

There’s moooooore. The list of singers also included big names like Morandi, Aronchupa, Sak Noel and even Inna! Not to mention millions of Russian pop singers.

The contest

The Slavianski Bazaar isn’t only about famous artists — it also gives talented young singers the chance to perform in front of thousands. The winner of the rather wordy category ‘International Contest of young singers Vitebsk – 2015’ is Dinash Kudaybergen from Kazakhstan. In the kids competition, another Kazakh won — Luiza Nurkuatova. Kazakhstan may not be in Eurovision yet, but its ambitions to win foreign music competitions suggests it’ll keep pushing.

What a big injustice that Belarus did not qualify to the final..
The performance of Uzari & Maimuna was really great..
Along with Malta’s elimination on the 2nd SF as well..

Both of these fantastic songs on their remastered versions were rated 10/10 by me & they were just only the 3 songs out of the 40 overall of Vienna’s Vision that i gave the maximun perfect score! <3
{along with *Warrior* of Georgia.. <3}

#BELARUS can get the maiden first victory in Vision soon enough.. 🙂 Earlier than 2020 if things work our 4 Belarussians 🙂 But they have to become more gay friendly country & more tolerant/proggressive nation country before they give it a serious shot to win 🙂 So when they get to host our Vision in Belarus Minsk the sitiation 4 gays there will be not bad & messy 🙂 I don’\t expect Belarus to suddenly transformed & become so gay friendly country like Sweden,Denmark,Holland,Norway,Iceland are but at least they can do enough steps towards progress 🙂 Belarus can become partly… Read more »
