The Eurovision Song Contest will be organized normally, with all participants performing live from Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam. There will be 9 shows (including dress rehearsals) in a venue full of delegations and artists from all participating broadcasters. Euroclub, press conference, Eurovision Village – everything will continue at full capacity.
Current corona measures taken by the Dutch government will not allow this to happen. Especially the rule of always keeping the distance of 1.5 meters is an important obstacle for the Eurovision Song Contest as we have known it for the last few years.
In this scenario, there will be some kind of Eurovision experience in Rotterdam. However, due to the 1.5 meter rules, the changes will be serious. Only 3,000 people can stay in Ahoy instead of 12,000 people. This will significantly affect the atmosphere during the actual competition.
