The Gibraltar International Song Festival 2018 will be held on Saturday 2 June and the closing date for entries is 12 January. The organisers say that although they have only just 'opened for business' they have already received some great songs which so far have been sent from the UK, Spain, Chile and Argentina.

This year's event was a huge success, with hundreds of submissions from 22 countries, and the show was livestreamed to Europe, Latin America and via YouTube.

The festival is a window of opportunity for local and international talent and not only helps to promote tourism to Gibraltar but also reinforces its reputation on the world music stage.
