Kazakhstan participated in the North Vision Song Contest 19. Their entry was selected through Äwenfestïvali 19, a national selection that consisted of a single final, organised by the national broadcaster, NTK.
The Kazakh confirmation was announced on 13 March 2016, with Äwenfestïvali 19 confirmed immediately. Originally the selection was supposed to take place like last edition, with two semi-finals and a second chance round, but it was later changed to a single final due to timing concerns.
The final of Äwenfestïvali 19 took place on 21 May 2016 at the Astana Arena in Astana, and was hosted by Diana Snegina.
