The 63rd Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Lisbon, Portugal next year. The contest is to take place at the Altice Arena. The first semi-final will take place on 8th May, the second semi-final on 10th May, and the Grand Final will take place on 12th May. This is the first time Portugal has hosted a Eurovision event.
A total of 43 countries will take part in the 2018 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. This includes Russia, as they return to the contest after a year break. The 43 participating countries are:
- Czech Republic
- FYR Macedonia
- The Netherlands
- San Marino
- United Kingdom
The official slogan for next year’s contest is “All Aboard!”, and was chosen to represent a celebration of Europe and music. The slogan was inspired by Lisbon’s longstanding history as an important global seaport and the importance of the ocean in Portugal’s history. The ocean has connected Portugal to the rest of the world for centuries, and this connectivity is intended to invite people from across the world to come together to celebrate music and Eurovision.
