Omroep Max, one of the Dutch public broadcasters, has announced it will be broadcasting live from Rotterdam during Eurovision week.
Omroep Max will be hosting a daily programme during Eurovision week focused on the contest live from Rotterdam. The broadcaster revealed it will be live from the 3e Katendrechtsehoofd during the course of the week of the Eurovision Semi-Finals bringing Dutch viewers closer to the contest.
The broadcaster chose not to be broadcasting from the Eurovision village, as they wished to have a backdrop of Rotterdam for the broadcasts.
Omroep Max and the city of Rotterdam are in discussions as to how best to utilise the daily chat show and its set during the week of the contest. There are discussions about inviting former Eurovision participants and other local acts to perform in the evenings at the set of the show.
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”.
