MOSCOW, January 12. /TASS/. Sochi will host the New Wave pop song contest, which was held in the Baltic resort of Jurmala annually, Krasnodar Territory Governor Alexander Tkachev said on Monday.
In addition to Sochi, Kaliningrad and Yalta were the contenders to host the song festival, Tkachev said.
The organizers of the festival decided to change the place of the New Wave festival because in July 2014 Russian pop stars Valeriya, Iosif Kobzon and Oleg Gazmanov were banned from entry to Latvia.
After the incident Tkachev put forth a proposal to hold the festival in Krasnodar Territory, southern Russia, the governor’s press service said.
