The alternative Eurovision grand final will be held in the fall in the Caucasus resort city of Sochi. Contestant selection starts in Yalta in the local cultural center in mid-June.
One of the organizers of the event, Viktor Drobis announced that talent will be the sole measure of evaluating performances – but weirdos are not welcome.
South Korea, Japan, and China have already indicated their intention to take part in the event. Organizers encourage contestants to incorporate traditional motifs in their performances so that viewers can enjoy productions from a wide variety of sources.
