The Fantasia Contest 29 was the twenty-ninth edition of the Fantasia Contest. It took place in Yuriakut, Flírskmasto, the winning country of Fantasia Contest 28.

Thirty countries will be participating in the final, making it the largest final, to date.

Breavania, Gasandae, Panguil and Saint Vittoria debuted, Glacea and Sirenforest returned after a one-edition break, Aquia, Moly-Boronia, The White Havens, Vradiazi and Wedse withdrew.

The winner of the 29th edition are indie rock group Yeah Yeah Yeahs with Perfume Genius, and their song "Spitting off the Edge of the World", from Sincuerello, with the total of 189 Points. This is Sincuerello's first win and also first automatic qualification in the contest since their debut in the 15th edition. Lanovina placed second, with 176 Points, achieving their first top 3 since the 23rd edition and tieing their best result. Placing 3rd is Dorma, also achieving their best result, while Namimori and Niolskiaj completing the top 5, with the latter barely qualifying for the final. The rest of the top 10 is completed by Ximbala, host country Flírskmasto, the Ruyjin Republic, Alchten and Ydiwealth, which the latter also reached their best result as of this edition.

As for the "Big 6" members, as previously mentionned, Flírskmasto and Alchten reached the top 10, while Torlova placed 12th, Lakadamia barely missed the top half of the scoreboard, ending 16th, Danskanksova placed 20th and Fordia finished 25th.
