The location for 2021's Eurovision Song Contest has been announced.

In 2021, Eurovision will be held at the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam, Netherlands, where 2020's competition was originally set to take place and where some of its remote live special, Eurovision: Europe Shine a Lightwhich honored the 41 selected delegates from the participating countries of 2020 in a non-competitive format, was filmed.

This year's actual live contest, slated for May 12-16, 2020, was canceled amid the global coronavirus pandemic. "I can promise you: the Eurovision Song Contest will come back stronger than ever," executive supervisor Jon Ola Sand had said.
