Copenhagen to Host Eurovision Song Contest 2014

Copenhagen will host the Eurovision Song Contest 2014. After three and a half months of negotiations, the Danish Broadcasting Corporation has decided on the Danish capital.

The venue for the three music shows, the semi-finals on 6 and 8 May and the final on 10 May next year, will be the old B&W shipyard. The old factory halls have been crucial to the Danish Broadcasting Corporation’s decision.

"We are so proud that the choice has fallen on Copenhagen to host Eurovision 2014. It is a big win for the entire Capital Region, which also has great value for all of Denmark. The Eurovision Song Contest is an opportunity for us to reach out to the world again and tell the story of one of our society’s industrial icons, Copenhagen shipyard, as a venue for the creative Copenhagen. We look forward to welcoming thousands of visitors from all over the world,” said Lars Bernhard Jørgensen, CEO of Wonderful Copenhagen, who submitted the official bid in close cooperation with the City of Copenhagen and the Capital Region.
