Almost two months after Loreen’s great victory with “Tatoo”, the announcement has been spread around that Malmö is going to be the host city for the Eurovision Song Contest 2024. It will be the third time for Malmö to be a host city after 1992 and 2013, next year will be the 68th edition of the ESC.
In the fore field there was a pool of Swedish bidding cities like Stockholm, Gothenburg and Örnsköldsvik. Stockholm’s arenas have been fully booked in May next year, there were even discussions to build a new arena for the event, but due to the high costs it’s more clever to use a city which has already been proofed as a good host city like Malmö. The roof of the Scandinavium in Gothenburg would not hold the heavy lightning system which is used nowadays. The conditions were the best in Malmö, so decision has been made by the Swedish broadcaster SVT in alignment with the EBU.
The ESC 2024 will take place on 7th, 9th and 11th May.
