The ABU TV Song Festival 2014 will be the third annual edition of the ABU TV Song Festival. The festival, which is non-competitive, will take place on 25 October 2014 at The Venetian Theatre in Macau, China and coinciding with the 51st General Assembly of the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) which took place between 22 and 28 October 2014. Fifteen countries are expected to participate in the third edition of the event. The host country Macau will make their début at the festival, while Malaysia is withdrawing.
Macau is one of two Special Administrative Regions of the People's Republic of China with the other being Hong Kong. It lies on the western side of the Pearl River Delta across from Hong Kong to the east, bordered by Guangdong Province to the north and facing the South China Sea to the east and south . It has the population of 607,500 people  living in an area of 29.5 km2, making Macau the most densely populated state in the world. Macau was administered by Portugal from the mid-16th century until late 1999 when sovereignty was transferred back to China under the Sino-Portuguese Joint Declaration.
The Venetian Theatre was chosen to be the venue for the 2014 edition. The theatre, which can seat 1800 people, is a part of The Venetian Macao hotel and casino resort. It was originally the venue for Zaia, a Cirque du Soleil stage production from 2008 to 2012.
The number of participating countries for the 2014 was limited to 15 with each country allowed to only send one act.
