The Eurovision Song Contest 1969 was the 14th in the series. It was the first time that the contest resulted in a tie for first place, with four countries each gaining 18 votes. Since there was at the time no rule to cover such an eventuality, all four countries were declared joint winners.France’s win was their fourth. France became the first country to win the contest four times. The Netherlands’ win was their third. Spain and the United Kingdom each won for the second time. And it was the first time that any country (Spain, in this case) had a winning ESC entry two years in a row.
Austria was absent from the contest, refusing to participate in a contest staged in Franco-ruled Spain.
