The Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will take place on 18, 20 and 22 May. The dates for next year’s Contest were announced at Ahoy in Rotterdam, the venue for next year’s show.

The EBU and host broadcasters NPO, NOS and AVROTROS have confirmed that the two Semi-Finals will take place on 18 May and 20 May and the Grand Final on 22 May, 2021.

Following the cancellation of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 fans from all over the world have been anxiously waiting for something to look forward to. During the Eurovision: Europe Shine A Light show back in May it was announced that the 2021 edition would take place in Rotterdam and now we know when!

In the coming months it will be decided which elements of this year’s cancelled edition will remain in 2021. “The stage will be carried over to next year, because that was already prepared. Apart from that, a lot depends on what is possible at that time, on the availability of all those involved and on what fits the spirit of 2021” says Executive Producer Event Sietse Bakker.
