Festivali i Këngës 57

This year's Festivali i Këngës will again be held in December live from the congress hall "Pallati i Kongreseve" in central Tirana, with three nights:

  1. 20 December 2018: The 22 songs will be performed accompanied by the RTSH Symphonic Orchestra
  2. 21 December 2018: The 22 songs will be performed with backing track and staging similar to Eurovision
  3. 22 December 2018: The Albanian entry for Eurovision 2019 will be selected by an expert jury

Festivali i Këngës is organized by the Albanian national broadcaster Radio Televizioni Shqiptar (RTSH). Since its start in 1966, all artists have been asked to perform live, with a jury selecting the winner. Since 2003 the winner of the festival is Albania's representative to Eurovision Song Contest.

When Albania in 2004 finally applied EBU to participate in Eurovision Song Contest, they agree to let the winner of the country's most popular festival represent Albania.
