The Sanremo Music Festival 2021 is the upcoming national selection process in Italy for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. It will be organised by Italy’s national broadcaster Rai and will be held from the 2nd of March 2021 until the 6th March 2021. It has been announced that the show will be hosted by Amadeus and Fiorello.

There are still many things unknown about Sanremo Music Festival 2021. Like the venue. Traditionally the contest is held at Teatro Ariston however this venue can only hold two thousand people and it has been suggested that Rai may aim to go for a bigger arena this year.

It has also come into question how the event will be held under coronavirus restrictions, for example, the stage and orchestra take up a lot of space in the arena and with social distancing measures likely to be in place still it is unlikely that the event will be able to have two thousand people in the audience. It has been suggested that the event may be held outdoor however nothing is as of yet confirmed by Rai.

It is expected that Sanremo will be used to select Italy’s Eurovision entrant as Sanremo has selected nearly all of Italy’s entrants since they returned to the contest in 2011 with only one exception being that in 2014 the broadcaster internally picked Emma Marrone. This will likely be used to select a participant however as the announced dates fit within the EBU’s deadline of mid-march for entrant submissions.

Sanremo is not typically held in the first weekend of March and as such this could mean the National Final in Italy will clash with other big national finals such as Sweden’s Melodifestivalen.

The event is expected to run late into the night in 2020 the event lasted until 1am before eventually crowning Diodato as the champion. It is also yet to be announced whether Diodato will be invited back to participate in the contest for a chance to represent Italy again however in keeping with the Sanremo Contests nature it is likely to be down to Diodato on whether or not to participate. It could also mean for the second time since their return that Sanremo is not used to select the countries participant and that Rai may internally select Diodato.

The Sanremo Music Festival is the most popular Italian song contest – many don’t know however the Eurovision song contest was based on the Sanremo Music Festival. The contest has in the past launched the careers of many of Italy’s most popular stars including Andrea Bocelli.

The 2021 show will be the 70th Sanremo Music Festival. It is yet to be announced any act that will participate at the festival or where the festival will be held. All that can be confirmed is that the event will be broadcast on Rai in Italy from the 2nd March 2021 to the 6th March 2021. It is yet unknown if this contest will select the Italian Eurovision entry.
