The Eurovision Young Musicians 2022 is the upcoming 20th edition of the Eurovision Young Musicians. Initially planned to take place in Zagreb, Croatia on 21 June 2020 to coincide with World Music Day,[1] it was postponed indefinitely as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe.[2] The future of the contest remained uncertain until 3 February 2022 when the Norwegian broadcaster NRK confirmed that the upcoming edition would be held in Montpellier, France on 23 July 2022.[3][4]


Eurovision Young Musicians 2022 will take place on 23 July 2022 in Montpellier, France during the annual summer festival, Festival Radio France Occitanie Montpellier.[3][4]

Other countries

For a country to be eligible for potential participation in the Eurovision Young Musicians, it needs to be an active member of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).[8] It is unknown whether the EBU issue invitations of participation to all 56 active members like they do for the Eurovision Song Contest and Junior Eurovision Song Contest.[8]

Active EBU members

  •  Slovenia  – On 5 February 2022, RTSLO confirmed that they would not participate in the contest due to financial issues.[9]
  •  Spain  – While there has not yet been an official confirmation for 2022, in April 2020 RTVE confirmed their intention to participate in future edition of Eurovision Young Musicians after being unable to confirm their participation in time for the 2020 edition.[10] Spain did not appear on the final list released on 21 February.

The following countries' broadcasters confirmed their non-participation without providing further explanation:
