Welcome to your Eurovision Song Contest.

This is the twenty-ninth edition of the Yourovision Song Contest, to take place in Los Angeles, after Elle King won the twenty-eighth edition for the United States of America.

Following the huge success of the previous edition, interest in the contest surged, resulting in yet another new record being set for the number of participants, now 31, beating the previous record of 25. This also marks the first time a non-special edition has had enough competing entries to warrant the presence of a semi-final round.

Edition 29 - Los Angeles - Carefree

Following Elle King's win, it was decided that the host city should ideally be located in California, and, ultimately, Los Angeles was chosen, both as its status as the largest city of California, and as the previous winner's birthplace. The slogan "Carefree" was chosen, to depict the light and playful lifestyle associated with music and song-contests, inviting participants to forget their concerns for a while, and to come and play with the other competitors.

The dates for this edition are:

Participation deadline/Semi-final voting begins: 14th July, 2016
Semi-final voting deadline: 22nd July, 2016
Grand Final voting begins: 23rd July, 2016
Grand Final: 30th July, 2016
