Welcome to your Eurovision Song Contest.

This is the twenty-eighth Yourovision Song Contest, to take place in the Polish capital, Warsaw, following their win with Margaret in the previous edition.

As this edition followed a one-month break for the Eurovision Song Contest, it is to be a special edition, in which every participant is eligible to send two songs. Even without this factor, this edition holds the record for highest number of individual users taking part, at 25 players, with a combined total of 50 songs taking part in total, far surpassing the previous records of 23 and 39, respectively held by the twentieth and the twenty-fourth editions.

Edition 28 - Warsaw - Harmonise

Following Poland's first-ever Yourovision victory, Warsaw was selected as the host city, alongside the slogan "Harmonise", to be accompanied by theme-art partially inspired by the previous winning song, "Cool Me Down". The theme is to be incorporated into the exact design of the semi-finals in new ways, never before seen at the Yourovision Song Contest.

The dates for this edition are:

Participation deadline/Semi-final voting begins: 1st June, 2016
Semi-final voting deadline: 14th June, 2016
Grand Final voting begins: 15th June, 2016
Grand Final: 28th June, 2016
