Open up is the slogan for ESC 2020 and the design is still under development and will be presented soon.
Rotterdam, will host the Eurovision Song Contest on the 12th, 14th and 16th of May 2020.
Sietse Bakker, executive producer of Eurovision Song Contest 2020, and Jon Ola Sand, executive supervisor of Eurovision Song Contest, explained the meaning and importance behind choosing this very original slogan.
According to Bakker "The slogan 'Open Up' is intentionally incomplete: 'Open Up' to the other. 'Open Up' to the song. 'Open Up' to Rotterdam. 'Open Up' to ... whatever you want to choose! Take the freedom to complete the slogan in your own way. With this freedom, he added, we were looking for a theme and a slogan that reflects what the Netherlands stands for and with which the Dutch can identify themselves; a country with an open mind to the world.
The invitation is done! Open Up ... Now!

For its 11th edition, the following international artists are already confirmed:

The official opening of Eurovision will happen today with the Orange Carpet (last year in Lisbon it was Blue) at Habima Square in Tel Aviv, where this year's artists will parade and many Met Gala style outfits will circulate.
The Met Gala happened last week in New York and of course, it was spoken by the outfits the American stars used. The Met Gala 2019 theme was "Camp: Notes on Fashion." Like it or not, galas like this will be immortalized in photos that show eccentricity, power and creativity.
And here in Europe, at the most Camp Show of the Year, Eurovision, fans are the most critical! In fact, there is even a website that awards the prize "Barbara Dex Award" where the worst dressed Eurovision is awarded. This week, fans become fashion and creativity critics where sometimes they do not let people's creativity fly. What is different is often called horrible what is most appealing is sometimes ridiculed.
Yes, in this Eurovision where a woman with a beard is idolized and where it is appealed to difference and respect sometimes fans are the most cruel. Complicated this way of thinking and understanding the others! Everything is relative but let's remember the concept of Eurovision - Peace and Tolerance. Stop a bit to think, how would you go to Eurovision if you had to draw attention and to appeal to the vote in this increasingly visual event? Nobody is forced to like the way others dress but please, respect!
Happy Eurovision to all! Enjoy Eurovision!

"Bjorn Ulvaeus has updated fans on when fans can expect to hear new music the group have been working on.
The group revealed almost one year ago they had been back in the studio for the first time in over 35 years, working on music for the long-delayed ABBA avatar tour project. Two song titles have been confirmed, I Still Have Faith In You and Don't Shut Me Down.
Bjorn told Denmark’s Ekstra Bladet newspaper that fans can expect to hear a brand-new ABBA song "in September or October".
Member Benny Andersson recently said legal compilations had pushed back the virtual tour and therefore the new music. He also teased the possibility of a third new ABBA song - or possibly even an entire new album." Official Charts (03 April 2019)
