3,500 fans will be able to attend the singing event which will take place in Rotterdam from 18 to 22 May

The event will be a practical test, a sort of “field laboratory”, which will aim to study how events of this type could take place in the future with an audience safely despite Covid-19.

EBU (European Broadcasting Union), organizer of the event, “welcomes the decision of the Dutch government” and Martin Osterdahl, executive supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest, explained that “we will now consider the available options and announce more details in the coming weeks on how we can safely get the public into the Ahoy in Rotterdam, if the situation allows. The health and safety of everyone attending the event remains our top priority. ”

“As previously announced, all delegations, artists and production crews will follow a strict protocol and will not come into contact with potential audience members under any circumstances,” adds EBU.
