The Scoop

KAN recommends Tel Aviv as host city, EBU “likely to accept”

Yes, this morning, Israel Hayom has reported that following last week’s visit by Jon Ola Sand, Tel Aviv is the city recommended by KAN to host the Eurovision Song Contest 2019.

EBU likely to accept KAN’s choice

The report indicates that EBU is “likely to accept” KAN’s recommendation. In addition, the contest will take place on either the 14th-18th May or the 21st-25th May. An official announcement is expected later this week.

The venue of choice is expected to be the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds that can hold up to 10,000 spectators in a concert setting. If these reports prove to be accurate, this would mean Jerusalem and the Pais Arena would fall at the final hurdle after Eilat’s “out of the box” plans were eliminated from proceedings last week.

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
