Dates for 2023

Söngvakeppnin 2023 will be the national final organised by RÚV in order to select Iceland’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023. It will consist of two semi-finals on 18 and 25 February 2023 and a final on 4 March 2023.

In each semi-final, five of the ten competing acts will perform, and the two entries which are determined solely by the viewing public through telephone voting will progress to the final. As per the rules of the competition, an additional optional qualifier could be selected by the contest organisers from among the non-qualifying acts, which would also progress to the final.
