Israel Calling: what you need to know

At the start of April, a long list of artists and delegations of the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 will arrive in Israel for 3 days. During their stay, they will partake in planting trees, and participate in a huge promo concert, where they will perform their Eurovision entries live!

The exciting event will be held in Hangar 11, at Tel Aviv Port on April 3rd – just before the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 takes place in Liverpool, United Kingdom, this May. The event will mark Israel’s 50th annual participation in the contest, and celebrate the nation’s 75th anniversary.

The show will be hosted by Dafna Dekel and Sigal Shachmon, who hosted the 1999 Eurovision Song Contest in Israel. On April 2nd, a long list of delegations and artists from the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 will arrive in Israel from all across Europe.
They will stay here for 3 days. During the visit, the artists will partake in planting trees in the KKL Eurovision Forest located within the European Forest, as part of the global fight against the climate crisis.

Previous Israel Calling events, which featured dozens of countries from across Europe, gained much success; they were praised and celebrated by the participating Eurovision artists and their delegations. The glamorous events contributed immensely to the artists’ exposure and promotion in the participating countries and even helped drive their ultimate success in the Eurovision Song Contest. In addition, Israel Calling events brought Israel wide positive media exposure and flattering social-media coverage across Europe, bringing the nation’s story to the world. Some of the previous Eurovision artists even became ‘ambassadors’ of Israel, who come to visit here privately time and again.

I have been watching Eurovision since I was a young girl, but I've been actively involved in the contest since 2016. I am really passionate about it and it's basically all I talk about from January till June. My favorite genre is probably pop/rock, but I enjoy a good ballad every now and then. I have been visiting Eurovision in Concert for a long time and I've been to 2 editions of Eurovision so far!
