ZAGREB, 25 January 2022 – Fourteen singers will battle it out at the 2022 Dora Music Festival on 19 February with the winner representing Croatia at Eurovision 2022.
Among this year’s finalists are talented 19-year-old Mia Negovetić, Zdenka Kovačićek, who has enjoyed a career spanning decades, and blind Swiss-Croatian Bernarda Brunović.
The 2022 Dora Music Festival will take place in Opatija again with the winner being crowed after votes from the jury (50%) and TV audience (50%) are counted.
The winner will represent Croatia at the 66th edition of Eurovision Song Contest which is set to take place in Turin, Italy in May.
