“The Eurovision-2017 contest stage weighs around 30 tons and the platform where contestants will perform has an area of 350 square meters. The stage has the largest screen that has ever been built in Ukraine. A specially designed central part of the stage called the beehive allows each metal girder of the stage structure to move independently, fall or rise during the show or in between the performances. This makes it possible to change the geometry of the scene in order to create unique performances for each of the participants.”, – explained Ola Melzig. Head of Production of Eurovision 2017.

You can find more information and pictures on the official website of the Ukrainian broadcaster.

The Eurovision Song Contest 2017 will be held on May 9, 11 and 13 in Kyiv after the victory of Jamala with her song 1944.
