This is the third time that the announcement of the host city has been delayed, the first announcement was due August 1st, before being set for August 24th and now further delayed.

Mayor of Dnipro, one of the three cities left in the running to host the contest has stated on Facebook that the announcement has been delayed until next week. Mr Borys Filatov added that it is a shame that the country has now lost two months of time to prepare for the contest.

  1. As I said,I can’t wait 9th May!
    JUST SAY WHO WILL HOST IS NOT THAT HARD!
    So They know who will host but they don’t tell us -_-

  2. Oh my dear Ukraine, please hand the show over to Germany, France, the UK or somebody else who is capable to carry out a professional show.

    1. Totally agree with you, Ukraine does not even have a suitable venue. EBU must do that quickly, ask other cities in Europe before it is too late, I do not want the contest to be cancelled, just because they took Douwe Bob too serious (Slow down).

  3. I can’t say I’m surprised. EBU should put a deadline for each contest, let’s say three months after the previous contest was held. NTU made a whole spectacle out of this bidding phase, they could’ve just had discussions between each city’s representative, instead of holding a televised debate, and then chosen the preffered host city without the elimination round.

  4. Im starting to get bored with this… We have flights, Hotels and time off work to prepare for… Travelling to the Ukraine from scotland could involve 3 or 4 flights, which in turn needs extra days off work….
    The fun and excitment we had planning to go to sweden was great fun…. While this time we are getting bored…

    1. 31st of May? Oh wait, that’s after the contest…

      Ok, hopefully they will announce it on the 31st of August. 🙂
