Famous home to The Beatles, Liverpool’s music scene goes back many decades, earning it the nickname ‘The Capital of Pop’. In 2008, Liverpool was the European City of Culture, helping to transform its image, which had been battered due the post-industrial decline that occurred in the latter decades of the 20th century. The city has the hotel space to host the contest, and the airport has plenty of Ryanair and easyJet flights from across Europe to transport most fans to the Contest. The M&S Bank Arena has a seating capacity of 13,781 and has previously hosted the MTV Europe Music Awards in 2008.
