Malmö will host Eurovision 2024!

It’s been less than two months since Loreen triumphed at the Eurovision Song Contest for the second time, bringing Sweden’s 7th victory at the Contest. Now SVT and the EBU have confirmed that next year’s Eurovision Song Contest is going to be held in Malmö!

Same as the first time when Loreen won, the Eurovision Song Contest is going back to Malmö! The Executive Supervisor of Eurovision, Mr. Martin Osterdahl stated:

The EBU is thrilled that Malmö has been selected as the Host City for the Eurovision Song Contest 2024.

Malmö holds a special place in the history of the Contest, having successfully hosted it firstly in 1992 and then in 2013 – following Loreen’s last win. We’re excited to be returning to this vibrant and dynamic city which has demonstrated it has the venues and infrastructure that are perfect for staging the world’s largest live music event.

Malmö’s commitment to diversity, inclusivity, and innovation aligns perfectly with the spirit of the competition.  Furthermore, its compact size and well-developed transport infrastructure means everyone involved in the Contest, including delegations, media, and fans will be able to navigate the city easily. Its commitment to sustainability and green initiatives also aligns perfectly with our own values, making it an ideal Host City for the 68th Eurovision Song Contest.

Malmö’s bid demonstrated a huge passion for the Eurovision Song Contest, and I have full confidence in their ability to create an unforgettable experience that will bring together fans, artists, and viewers across the globe. Together with Host Broadcaster SVT, we will create an extraordinary celebration of music, unity, and diversity that will captivate the world in May next year.

Ebba Adielsson, SVT’s Executive Producer of the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest added:

We received strong, compelling, and creative proposals from several cities for which we are extremely grateful. The involvement of all the bidding municipalities has been outstanding. When we finally had all the options, we did an overall assessment to consider all factors involved in organizing this huge event.  Malmö was eventually chosen as it met all the criteria and provides a location with great venues and is a city where all those attending the Eurovision Song Contest can move around easily. Malmö is also firmly committed to providing both those visiting and living in the city a chance to participate in the festivities.

The 2024 Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Malmö Arena, with the two Semi Finals being held on 7th and the 9th of May, and the Grand Final on the 11th.
