ESC 1974 – The Participants

17 countries took part in the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest.

Greece made its debut in the competition, while France, having selected an entry (“La vie à vingt-cinq ans” by Dani), withdrew at a late stage as a mark of respect following the death of President Pompidou.

The 19th Eurovision Song Contest was held at the Dome in Brighton, England, on 6 April 1974.
