SVT along with the City of Stockholm have today officially revealed the key venues and event locations for this year’s Eurovision, including the opening ceremony venue, Euroclub and Eurovision Village!
- Opening Ceremony in the Stockholm’s City Hall, one of the most recognisable buildings of the Swedish capital, which already hosted the opening ceremony back in 2000.
- Euroclub in front of the Royal Palace, a special building to be constructed next to the water.
- Eurovision Village in the Royal Gardens.
This year, all three Eurovision areas will be happily located within walking distance of each other, which will make fans access to the all Eurovision activities without having to move from the one side of the city to another.
The choice of the Stockholm City Hall for the opening ceremony and the Royal Garden for the Eurovision Village feels just right, but what really stands out is the unique location of the EuroClub, at one of Stockholm’s most beautiful places, at the waterfront in front of the Royal Palace”, said contest producer Christer Björkman. “There will be magic”, he added.
