AVROTROS has today revealed the concept behind the postcards that will be shown before each performance at Eurovision 2020.
The Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS has today revealed the concept behind the postcards for the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. The postcards for the 2020 contest will see each act taking part in an activity, tradition or hobby of a group of Dutch people. Sietse Bakker explained:
We consciously chose to show the best of the Netherlands during postcards: the people and their hospitality, in all their diversity. Dutch people often meet each other through hobbies, activities, traditions and communities. From the street barbecue, the carnival organizations, fraternities to to football clubs, choirs to break dance groups – we do it together.
During the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 we want to show that to 180 million viewers. With the theme of Open Up as a common thread, we want show the positive, connecting force that suits our country.
Groups, streets, clubs and associations from all over the Netherlands, who want to have a chance to greet one of the participants and be part of one of the postcards can apply via songfestival.nl. The postcards will be filmed during March and April.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2020 takes place in the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam, The Netherlands on the 12th, 14th and 16th of May. The Netherlands won the right to host the competition following their win in 2019 with Duncan Laurence and the song “Arcade”.
