As the Dutch news ad.nl reports Erasmus bridge was closed last night in order for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 recordings to take place there the bridge connects north and south parts of Rotterdam and it is second largest in the Netherlands. It was constructed between 1986 and 1996 and named after Desiderius Erasmus, a prominent Christian Renaissance humanist also known as Erasmus of Rotterdam.

The recordings were arranged in the night for several reasons but the most important one was because it was the easiest way to close it at the time as The Netherlands have a curfew from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. because of the pandemic and it assured that no one would be able to gather there at the time of recording. In addition to that the Erasmus Bridge was completely closed for traffic from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. All of the residents who live nearby were informed in advance about the event taking place and they were asked to leave their lights on as long as possible so that “the images of the location become even more beautiful”.
