This year will mark the 55th edition of the Albania’s Festivali i Këngës, the traditional music festival that has been used to choose Albania’s Eurovision contestant every year since the country’s ESC debut in 2004.
And now RTSH, Albania’s national broadcaster, has announced the submission dates for this year’s contest. It will accept songs from the 10th to the 11th of October, which is slightly later than in previous years. Perhaps Eneda Tarifa’s early exit has made them hungry for a win?
Interestingly, Albania has not yet confirmed its participation for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Ukraine. We will expect Albania to make its official decision in September. Even so, this advertisement for FiK suggests they will be at the party.
