Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö
One of Europe’s biggest music events has arrived in Malmö – the Eurovision Song Contest 2013. The competition, featuring singers from 40 or so countries, will be decided between 14 and 18 May at Malmö Arena. But the festivities in Malmö get under way on 6 May!
Malmö lives Eurovision
The Eurovision Song Contest is more than just the Grand Final on Saturday 18 May – several countries will be participating in the semi-finals earlier in the week. That means that Malmö will be brimming with Eurovision activities all week long. The city’s squares, hotels, restaurants and shops will all be getting involved in this year’s celebration.
Dates for the finals:
- 14 May Semi-final 1
- 16 May Semi-final 2
- 18 May Final
Music, dancing and festivities – at the Eurovision Village on Gustav Adolfs torg there will be lots of events throughout the whole week from 11-18 May. There will be live broadcasts of all competitions, and in among the preparations ahead of the grand final there will be appearances by, among others, this year’s competitors. The Eurovision Village will also host dance festivals, evening events with, among others, Behrang Miri and Lucia Pinera, and a chat show with Miriam Aïda.
The tent will be open between lunchtime and evening. See and download the full schedule here:

Fifth Swedish win

Malmö hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in 1992 after Carola’s victory.
