Last year Finland achieved a fabulous second place with Käärjä and the song “Cha” in Liverpool. Enthused by this success the public interest has grown again. The national final UMK (Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu) is called new music competition and should animate the Finnish music industry to create new music with an international approach.

This year there will be seven entries competing for the golden Ticket to Malmö. The event will take place in the Nokia Arena in Tampere and will be hosted by Pilvi Hämäläinen, Viivi Pumpanen & Benjamin Peltonen. The participants must either be Finnish citizens or having a main residence in Finland. There were 419 song submissions this year.

These are the seven Finnish acts:

  1. Sini Sabotage – “Kuori mua”
  2. Cyan Kicks – “Dancing With Demons” 
  3. Jesse Markin – “Glow”
  4. Mikael Gabriel & Nublu – “Vox Populi”
  5. Sara Siipola – “Paskana”
  6. Sexmane – “Mania”
