Italy: RAI reveal 27 artists for Sanremo 2024

Sanremo Music Festival is a cultural phenomenon in Italy - spanning five nights, around 25 hours total and is the selection for Italy's Eurovision participant in 2024.

It will run nightly from February 6 to 10, at approximately 9pm CET locally. RAI ('Radiotelevisione italiana') is the Italian broadcaster of both Sanremo and Eurovision.

The competition will once again be hosted by the much adored Amadeus - this will be his fifth and final year as artistic director. He will be joined by cohosts Marco Mengoni (Night 1), Giorgia (Second Night), Teresa Mannino (Third Night), Lorella Cuccarini (Fourth Night) and the enigmatic Rosario Fiorello on the final evening. Much to the delight of Sanremo fans everywhere!

Generally the winner goes on to participate for the Mediterranean nation at Eurovision - however; Sanremo has never been a simple 'national final', on occasion if the winner declines the opportunity than it is up to the broadcasters to select someone else from that participating year (not necessarily 2nd place).
