The Swedish broadcaster SVT has revealed one of the biggest secrets of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest: the stage! The stage is one of the most important fields around the ESC, with a good or bad stage entries will shine or fall. In the recent years we have seen some more extraordinary designs like Copenhagen 2014 but also plane ones like Oslo 2010.
This year the Stockholm ESC stage designers Frida Arvidsson and Viktor Brattström are showing a very brave attempt to bring a bold and striking design into the game. These were the same designers as in Malmö 2013. The look shows clear lines, boxes and black bars. Interesting to see if this works in the bullet format of the Globen Arena.
The main innovation will be a kind of transparent LED technique, where any figures and sceneries can be displayed. The Irish band U2 have already used this kind of projection.
