Hungary withdraws from Eurovision

Hungary will not take part in next year’s Eurovision Song Contest, state media manager MTVA has announced.

Instead, MTVA will help Hungarian pop music talents and their productions, as Duna TV will support the winners of Hungary’s Dal song festivals by organising concerts for them and helping them to appear at the best-known Hungarian festivals. The winners will also be promoted on Petőfi Radio.

Applicants can enter the current Dal series only with songs performed in the Hungarian language.
