ITALY – Most Italians (and Europeans) fans are eager to know the names of the artists that will take part to the 67th edition of the famous “Festival della canzone italiana di Sanremo”, since the 2017 winner (or another contestant) will wave the Italian flag in Kiev.
Well, in roughly a month from now, the suspense will come to an end. Indeed, on December 10th, on RAI Uno, Sanremo festival host and artistic director Carlo Conti will reveal the names of the 20 “Big” artists in a special TV show. But unlike previous year, the show will be broadcast prime time!
Every single year, the Sanremo line-up is quite an event in Italy, given the huge popularity of the festival and the fact that actually big names take part (unlike other countries).
Some names are already circulating, such as Nina Zilli (Italy 2012), Fausto Leali (Italy 1989) or popular Chiara… But, to date, only Carlo Conti knows the list… The festival will take place from February 7th to 11th, in Teatro Ariston, in the beautiful town of Sanremo.
