The Eurovision Song Contest 2020 is canceled

The Eurovision Song Contest 2020, which would be held in Rotterdam Ahoy on 12, 14 and 16 May, is canceled. Based on the measures taken by the Dutch and foreign governments, the EBU (European Broadcasting Union) has decided that the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 cannot take place.

Eurovision Song Contest postponed to next year

The importance of the health of artists, employees, fans and visitors, as well as the situation in the Netherlands, Europe and the world is the reason for this decision by the EBU. The three organizing broadcasters (NPO / NOS / AVROTROS) fully understand this difficult decision. More info on Openuptorotterdam.eu.

The EBU has consulted both the organizing broadcasters and the host city Rotterdam to move the Song Contest to a later date next year. Rotterdam is ready for such a scenario. A date has yet to be set.
