2022

The Eurovision Song Contest 2022 will be the 66th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. Organised by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and host broadcaster Radiotelevisione italiana (RAI), the contest will be held at the Pala Alpitour in Turin, Italy and will consist of two semi-finals on 10 and 12 May, and the final on 14 May 2022. This will be the third time that Italy has hosted the contest (having previously hosted the 1965 edition in Naples and the 1991 edition in Rome).
