Indonesia will host the ABU TV Song Festival 2016 in Jakarta.
The announcement means that the fifth festival will be coming live from the Indonesian capital, Jakarta. Indonesia has had a strong interest in the festival since its start, with the nation having held televised reveal shows for the entries in the past, as well as having an active Head of Delegation.
The broadcaster of the contest has not yet been selected, it is likely that the national broadcaster of Indonesia Televisi Republik Indonesia (TVRI) will host it. However privately owned RCTI is an associate member of the ABU and could possibly host as the Macau broadcaster TDM was also an associate member and hosted in 2013.
