Executive Producer Sietse Bakker commented:
The fact that we now have the opportunity to open the script for a Eurovision Song Contest with an audience again is something we could only dream of. We are grateful to the cabinet and Fieldlab Events for this perspective and the confidence they give us in it.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will take place on May 18, 20, and 22 in Rotterdam. A total of 39 countries will take part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Eurovision 2020 was due to be held in Rotterdam after Duncan Laurence gave the Netherlands their first victory since 1975 with the song “Arcade”. After the cancelation of the 2020 contest, it was decided that Rotterdam would host the 2021 contest instead.
