The southern Swedish city of Malmo will host the Eurovision Song Contest for the third time, as the city had already hosted in 1992 and 2013.
The southern Swedish city of Malmo has been chosen to host next year's Eurovision Song Contest, the Swedish public broadcaster SVT announced on Friday. The 68th edition of the contest will be held at the Malmo Arena, and the live final has been set for May 11, 2024, with semifinals on May 7 and May 9.
"Malmo is a creative city with a rich cultural life that can provide a music festival for the whole of Europe," said STV director general Hanne Stjarne.
Sweden earned the right to host the 2024 competition after Swedish singer Loreen won this year's contest, hosted by Britain on behalf of war-torn Ukraine, with her song "Tattoo."
Loreen is the first woman to ever win the song contest twice. She won in 2012 when she triumphed in the Azerbaijani capital Baku with her song "Euphoria."
