The Swedish city Malmö will host the 68th Eurovision Song Contest following Sweden’s win at this year’s event.
The contest will be held on Saturday May 11 at the Malmö Arena with the semi-finals happening earlier the same week on Tuesday May 7 and Thursday May 9. Watch the announcement video below.
The city, in the south of the Scandinavian country, was selected by host network SVT and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) after Swedish singer Loreen’s historic second win at the 67th Eurovision in Liverpool, UK, earlier this year.
The win meant Loreen became the first woman to win the competition twice and tied Sweden with Ireland as the country with the most wins (7).
