Here is the competing music video of ‘PUMPA’:
This year’s edition was launched in the first days of October with INFE Romania revealing the INFEvision 2020 slogan “Riding the Ages” . From that point all INFE clubs were given a period until end of October to confirm participation to the host country. A total of 19 countries around the globe will eventually be participating in this year’s contest, which is a new record number for the competition itself after last year’s 18 countries. Unfortunately Armenia and Azerbaijan decided to withdraw due to the war conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh).
The Grand final is set to take place on December 19 in the city of Resita in Romania.
