The Thessaloniki Song Festival is an annual competition held in Thessaloniki since 1962. It is the longest-running music festival and award ceremony in Greece. There are a number of titles awarded, with the ultimate winner being the recipient of the Best Composiiton award, which made Rouvas the winner of the 30th annual contest with his d├ębut single composed by Nikos Terzis, with lyrics by Giorgos Pavrianos. Following his loss of the "Best Vocals" award, which he lost to another newcoming artist, Giorgos Alkaios, by only one point, many reporters claimed that the contest was rigged.

Famous quotes containing the words festival and/or song:

    Sabbath. A weekly festival having its origin in the fact that God made the world in six days and was arrested on the seventh.
    Ambrose Bierce (1842–1914)

    The quarrel of the sparrows in the eaves,
    The full round moon and the star-laden sky,
    And the loud song of the ever-singing leaves,
    Had hid away earth’s old and weary cry.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
