It has been revealed that the Eurovision Village will be located on the Binnenrotte in central Rotterdam.
The Head of Cultural events for Rotterdam has revealed today that the Binnenrotte is the location for the Eurovision Village. The location is one of the largest open spaces in the centre of Rotterdam and will welcome fans during the course of the week of the Eurovision Song Contest.
While the events at the Eurovision Village have not yet been confirmed, a total of 260 different ideas from across Rotterdam are currently being considered by the council.
Rotterdam council has worked to ensure that an existing market in the square will be able to continue as normal during the competition. Mr Kasmi explained:
We are having a good conversation with them (market traders). The market can continue as usual, but everyone has to move a little. That is the result of hosting such a beautiful, beautiful party.”
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”.
