BULGARIA -Bulgaria returns to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2020 and will announce the artist or group who will represent the country in Rotterdam with a press conference on 25 November in the capital Sofia. During the event, BNT will also present the production company behind the 2020 Bulgarian entry and the partnering music production company from the UK.
The new focus of the Bulgarian participation in Eurovision will be the long-term commercial success of the artists representing Bulgaria in the contest. Another priority will be the development of the creative industry in the country through the international partnerships made possible by the project.
The participation in the biggest music event in the world will be used as a platform to showcase the positive image of Bulgaria and the Bulgarian people.
