Eurovision 2023 stage design revealed

The EBU and BBC have just revealed the stage for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023. Julio Himede is the face behind this year’s design, which was inspired by the principles of togetherness, celebration and community. The total structure will have 450 square metres including 220 square metres of moving video screens, as well as 700 video tiles forming the floor and more than 1500 metres of LED lights.


The designer told

‘The architecture takes inspiration from a wide hug, opening its arms to Ukraine, the show’s performers and guests from across the world. I focused on the cultural aspects and similarities between Ukraine, the UK and specifically Liverpool. From music, dance and art to architecture and poetry.’

Himede is an experienced Set Designer that has already made works for Grammys and MTV EMAs:

It is our duty as designers to enhance performances through a compelling visual landscape, while capturing the heart and soul of the Eurovision Song Contest.’

‘It’s a thrill to know that such a diverse group of talented musicians will be performing on my stage. I’ve had a long history of being a fan of the show and as a young adult, I used to take notice of the impressive stage designs.

I am excited to celebrate the future winner and to pass the creative baton to the next country.

Executive Producer of Eurovision 2023 Andrew Cartmell said:

‘We wanted a set design that people will remember for years,’ said Andrew Cartmell, Executive Producer of the contest.

‘It’s so important to us that the delegations have the greatest possible space to work with. We wanted to give them a set that has lots of options for staging.’

‘Julio is a joy to work with; he’s creative with innovative designs. We reached out to him because he’s got phenomenal credentials, so that we can all make this a fantastic set design for Liverpool 2023.’

The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 will take place on May 9, 11 and 13 in Liverpool, UK.
