The capital of Austria has been chosen to host the 60th edition of Eurovision Song Contest. The venue is Wiener Stadthalle which can take up to 16,000 spectators.
The venue’s CEO Wolfgang Fischer said in May that they could provide everything needed for Eurovision and that they have experience in organizing big concerts and other events. Transport connections are also ideal – subway and railway stations are located right next to the venue. The press center and other facilities will be located in the halls that belong to the complex.
The other contestants aiming to get to host the show were Innsbruck and Graz.
The three shows will take place on May 19th, 21st and 23rd.
