EBU and KAN have revealed the slogan for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest. Next year in Israel, the slogan will be Dare to dream.
Inspirational slogans the standard
Over the past few years, we’ve seen that many of the host broadcasters choose to try and inspire the viewers with their slogans. Recent slogans include We Are One for Malmö in 2013, Come Together for Stockholm in 2016 and All Aboard
The first slogan at the Eurovision Song Contest was introduced back in 2002. Estonia’s capital Tallinn then hosted the show with the slogan A Modern Fairytale. Ever since, the host broadcaster has been responsible for choosing a slogan.
The news of next year’s slogan was confirmed on Twitter by the official accounts from both KAN and Eurovision:
Eurovision is “worth the dream”
Jon Ola Sand commented on the choice of slogan for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest. He said that Eurovision is something worth dreaming of. He remembered Netta having the dream of bringing Eurovision back to Israel and succeeding in that dream. He also added:

This aspirational tag line represents and symbolises everything that the Eurovision Song Contest is about. It’s about inclusion. It’s about diversity. It’s about unity.
Heading to Tel Aviv
Israel will be hosting the contest for the third time next May. After Netta Barzilai won the show in Lisbon, the contest will now travel to Tel Aviv. The competition will take place there on 14, 16 and 18 May 2019. KAN chose the Tel Aviv Convention Centre as their venue for the upcoming contest.
