    Timings
    Sanremo 2021 will take place from Tuesday, 2 March, till Saturday, 6 March included, as follows (same schedule every night):
    - 7:30pm WIM - Prima Festival
    - 7:40pm WIM - Festival

    Hosts
    - The show will once again be presented by Amadeus, who is also the artistic director of the competition, once again assisted by Fiorello.
    - They will be accompanied by 8 female co-hosts, as follows: Matilda De Angelis during the first night; Elodie and Luisa Ranieri during the second night; Vittoria Ceretti during the third night; Barbara Palombelli and Beatrice Venezi during the fourth night; and Serena Rossi and Simona Ventura during the fifth night.
    - Ornella Vanoni and Francesco Gabbani will make a hosting appearance on the Fifth Night.

    Guests
    - There are two fixed guests for the five nights (like Tiziano Ferro last year), namely Zlatan Ibrahimović and Achille Lauro. The latter will do a series comprising a different thematic performance each night (“audiovisual paintings”), on topics chosen by Amadeus.
    - Most guests are reprised in the post below for their respective evenings. Some have not yet been allocated to a particular Night, such as Tecla Insolia and the cast of the popular TV show Il Commissario Montalbano. Others are strongly rumoured, but have not yet been officially confirmed: Negramaro, Gigi D'Alessio, Emma Marrone, Adriano Celentano, Roberto Benigni.

    Covid-19 changes
    - The Festival is taking place in the month of March for the first time since 2005.
    - The Festival will take place without a live audience, which is an all-time first.
    - There will be no associated events or television programmes.
    - Supermodel Naomi Campbell, who was supposed to co-host, was unable to make it due to US travel restrictions.

    Newcomers
    The artists competing in the Newcomers' section were selected through two events to yield 8 finalists:
    - 6 from AmaSanremo, a music television show by Amadeus
    - 2 from Area Sanremo.

    Big - Excluded
    While there is no official communication about artists who have applied to take part in the Big category, but were denied, the media has collated some names, based on their own statements and other sources. Here are some of them: Morgan (lol), Leo Gassmann (weird, as he won last years Newcomers), The Kolors, Tiromancino, Michele Bravi, Marco Carta, Jalisse, Zero Assoluto, Giusy Ferreri and Al Bano. Some of them will appear on stage during the duets on Covers Night (Fourth Night).

    Eurovision
    The winner will be offered the possibility to represent Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. In case they refuse, RAI reserves the right to choose someone else.

    This is your guide to the five Nights:

    FIRST NIGHT
    - The first group of 13 of the 26 Big Artists will perform their songs. A provisional top 13 will be decided by the demoscopic jury (selected music fans voting from home through an electronic voting system). Nobody is eliminated.
    - 4 of the 8 Newcomers will perform their songs. The two top ranking ones, decided by vote of demoscopic jury (33%), jury of the press room (33%), and public televote (34%), will advance to the Final (see Fourth Night). The other two are eliminated from the competition.
    - Notable guests: Zlatan Ibrahimović, Achille Lauro, Diodato (who will open the Night with Fai Rumore), Loredana Bertè.

    SECOND NIGHT
    - The second group of 13 of the 26 Big Artists will perform their songs. A provisional top 26 will be decided by the demoscopic jury (combined results from the First and Second Nights). Nobody is eliminated.
    - The other 4 of the 8 Newcomers will perform their songs. The two top ranking ones, decided by vote of demoscopic jury (33%), jury of the press room (33%), and public televote (34%), will advance to the Final (see Fourth Night). The other two are eliminated from the competition.
    - Notable guests: Zlatan Ibrahimović, Achille Lauro, Il Volo (doing a tribute to Ennio Morricone together with his son, Andrea Morricone), Alex Schwazer

    THIRD NIGHT
    - All 26 Big Artists are invited to perform a cover of a song of their choice, accompanied by Italian or foreign music guests (among them, names like Michele Bravi, Pinguini Tattici Nucleari, Nesli, Roy Paci, Daniele Silvestri, Neffa, The Kolors). I won't include the list of covers and guests here, but it is available in full on Wikipedia. The performances will be voted on and ranked by the musicians and singers of the Sanremo Music Festival Orchestra. A provisional top 26 will be decided by combined votes obtained across the three Nights thus far.
    - Notable guests: Zlatan Ibrahimović, Achille Lauro

    FOURTH NIGHT
    - All 26 Big Artists perform their competing entries one more time. The performances will be voted on by the jury of the press room. A provisional top 26 will be decided by combined votes obtained across the four Nights thus far. Nobody gets eliminated.
    - The 4 finalists from the Newcomers selection, selected in the First and Second Night, will perform their competing entries one more time. The winner will be decided by a combination of demoscopic jury (33%), jury of the press room (33%), and public televote (34%).
    - Notable guests: Zlatan Ibrahimović, Achille Lauro, Mahmood

    FIFTH AND FINAL NIGHT
    - All 26 Big Artists perform their competing entries one last time. The performances will be voted on by public televote only. Another top 26 will be decided, representing the combined votes over the five Nights.
    - Superfinal: The songs making up the top 3 of the final top 26 will be submitted again to a vote. The winner will be decided by a brand new vote of demoscopic jury (33%), jury of the press room (33%), and public televote (34%). The winner is proclaimed.
    - Notable guests: Zlatan Ibrahimović, Achille Lauro, Federica Pellegrini, Dardust
