The Eurovision Song Contest 2021

The 65th Eurovision Song Contest will take place on May 18, 20 and 22, 2021 in Rotterdam Ahoy. It can be followed on the NPO, but there is also plenty to do in the city under the sign of the ESF! Below are some of the coolest things to do in the city for you.

Visual artist Tymon de Laat has immortalized Jeangu Macrooy on a huge wall at Ahoy. The mural, called "Birth of a New Age", is part of a larger street art project called #UpStreet. That's not all, because the UP Street Rotterdam project is twofold. In the parking lot next to Rotterdam Ahoy, artists from six participating countries will work together on an installation consisting of large sea containers. Six artists from the five largest participating countries and the host country are given carte blanche to work on the theme 'The Embrace', with which they let the city of Rotterdam radiate its hospitality.
