So happy that I am invited to Rotterdam, to a competition that has meant so much to me! And what a Eurovision it’s going to be. So many good songs this year!Posted by Måns Zelmerlöw on Thursday, March 25, 2021
Eurovision champions will perform their winning songs across three unique arenas. The roofs of party venue Maassilo, Hotel New York, and the instantly iconic Boijmans Van Beuningen Depot museum, will be transformed into sky-high stages, propelling the Eurovision idols to dizzying new heights.
Head of Show Gerben Bakker explains:
“The Eurovision Song Contest is back after a year of absence. Reason enough to treat the millions of viewers to unique performances from three locations in the middle of the city. The title of this great act is “Rock the Roof” for a reason. By literally filming at great heights, we want to surprise Europe creatively and visually. In addition, I could not have wished for a better city than Rotterdam. Every shot in this city hits the spot. Rotterdam will not soon be forgotten.”
According to Bakker, all 6 acts immediately said ‘yes’ to the idea, including all the members of one very special Dutch band Teach-In.
“Because this is the 65th Eurovision Song Contest, we are taking a journey through time. We are particularly proud that Teach-In will reunite the original line-up after a very long time. Every performance will have its own unique atmosphere.”
