Eurovision is coming to Rotterdam!

Get ready for one of the most expected events of the year and say hello to the Eurovision Song Contest 2021!

It's happening! Eurovision will soon take place in the beautiful city of Rotterdam, at the famous venue Ahoy Arena. Countless musicians from all around Europe and beyond will gather to represent their countries in a competition of unique musical performances.

Although the event was canceled last year due to the Covid pandemic, the contest has been rescheduled to take place this month. Thanks to the recent relaxation of Covid measures, Eurovision will take place just as planned and on top, will welcome a live audience of 3,500 people! On May 18th and 20th, we will be able to watch the semi-finals and the grand finale will take place on May 22nd.

The theme of Eurovision 2021 is 'Open up', a theme that has been chosen to reflect the spirit of our times, inviting everyone to open up towards each other and to music.

We are so proud to share that our beloved hotel The James in Rotterdam is an official hotel of the famous Eurovision Song Contest 2021!
