The Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Malmo, Sweden, next year.

The 68th Eurovision Song Contest will be held in the city of Malmo next year, it was announced on Friday. This comes after Sweden won the contest in Liverpool in May.

After “dialogue with several cities,” organizers chose the coastal town in the south of the country over the capital, Stockholm.

On May 7 and 9, 2024, the semi-finals will be held at the Malmo Arena. On May 11, 2024, the final will be held there as well.

Loreen from Sweden won Eurovision 2023 with her pop song Tattoo, which went up and up and up.

The star, who also won the competition in 2012, beat out Finland’s Kaarija in a vote that was very close.

Malmo was picked to host the next event after a city-by-city bidding process that looked at venue facilities and the city’s ability to host thousands of delegations, crews, and fans.

Martin Osterdahl, who is in charge of the Eurovision Song Contest, said that the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) was “thrilled” that Sweden’s third-largest city will host it for the third time.

“Malmo has a special place in the history of the contest. It was first held there in 1992, and then it was held there again in 2013 after Loreen’s last win,” he said.

“We’re happy to be going back to this lively and active city, which has shown it has the venues and infrastructure needed to host the world’s biggest live music event.”

He also said that the city’s bid “showed a lot of enthusiasm” for the competition.

It will be the seventh time that Abba’s home country of Sweden has held the Eurovision Song Contest.

This year’s game was held in the UK, which holds the record with nine. Last year’s winners, Ukraine, couldn’t host as usual because Russia invaded their country.

About 500,000 people went to Liverpool, which was the main city, because of the event.

Sam Ryder was the runner-up in 2022, but the UK’s Mae Muller didn’t do as well. She came in 25th, just one spot above the bottom.
