The EBU has released today three images that present a simulation of the stage design for the Eurovision Song Contest 2020.
“Grand In Its Simplicity And Yet Full Of Surprises”.
For the third year in a row, the Eurovision stage will be designed by the super tallented German designer Florian Wieder. talking about the stage Wieder was quoted saying “The design shows the connection between the sky, the sea and the land. The horizon links these elements and that horizon will work as a window to open up the world of Eurovision 2020. The floor plan of the stage is inspired by the canals and bridges that connect land and water in the Netherlands. With this design, we want to bring the artists as close as possible to the audience.” I was inspired by the unique characteristics of Dutch Design. Based on that, I wanted to create an unconventional, minimalist and modern concept for next year’s show. I am very happy that the Dutch public broadcaster has been so openminded and has enthusiastically embraced this design. As far as I’m concerned, this is a new chapter in stage design, a wish I have had for a long time.”
Another great news was unveiled today as the Green room with all 41 countries participating will be inside the venue. this will make the excitement in the crowd from both, the artist and the audience, to “openup” together. The Executive Producer Event of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 shared his excitement too, saying “Proud! The stage design for the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest is innovative, modest and functionally smart. This way we can create a completely different look for each of the 41 participating acts, opening and interval acts and during the voting results. An innovative stage design, grand in its simplicity and yet full of surprises. Compliments to the entire team and, in particular, stage designer Florian Wieder!
Earlier this year, the official slogan “open Up” as well as the graphical artwork package presenting all the countries participating in the show was revealed and won a lot of attention by the fans worldwide.
The 65th Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Ahoy stadium in Rotterdam on May 12-14-16, 2020.
