The final of Eurovision Young Musicians 2016 will take place on the third of September. The decision was taken by the Steering Group for the contest in Berlin. The show will be held in Cologne, at the same venue as in 2014.
It is the first time that Eurovision Young Musicians has been held outside of either May or June. The change appears to have occurred to create additional focus on the contest between the Eurovision Song Contest in May and the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in November/December.
YoungMusicians.tv has hinted that there will be further tweaks to the format of the competition, building upon the changes that occurred in 2014. The 2014 contest saw all of the 14 musicians perform in both a preliminary round and the final, with prizes being awarded to first, second and third.
