February 2016 saw the 84th edition of Forum Song Contest (FSC). It was held in Tartu, Estonia - thanks to Grete Paia, who earned the victory in the preceding edition.

29 juries joined FSC 84, two less than in January: After failing to vote, Belgium and Slovenia did not take part. Also Morocco wasn't able to participate as part of a sanction against this country. It had to vote nevertheless and returned in the following month. However, after an one-month break, Austria returned to the competition.

After a close voting, Norway and its entry "Play My Drum" by Sandra Lyng emerged as the winner, four points ahead of Finland. Russia completed the top three. On the other hand, Indonesia earned the fewest points - not coming last in the overall ranking only because of two non-voting countries, namely Brazil and Greece.

The Host City Edit

Tartu is the second largest city of Estonia, following Estonia's political and financial capital Tallinn.

Tartu is often considered the intellectual centre of the country, especially since it is home to the nation's oldest and most renowned university, the University of Tartu. The city also houses the Supreme Court of Estonia, the Ministry of Education and Research and Estonian National Museum. It is the birthplace of Estonian Song Festivals.

Situated 186 kilometres southeast of Tallinn and 245 kilometres northeast of Riga, Tartu lies on the Emajõgi ("Mother river"), which connects the two largest lakes of Estonia. The city is served by Tartu Airport.

The Venue Edit

The Tartu Festival Arena is a concert venue for up to 15,000 people. It was opened with the 125th Song Festival in 1994. Every year 20 big concerts take place here, for example Depeche Mode, Manhattan Transfer and José Carreras have performed here.

The construction of the stage is unique, in that the arch above it acts as an acoustic screen, directing the sound towards the amphitheatre.
