The choice of the Stockholm City Hall for the opening ceremony and the Royal Garden for the Eurovision Village feels just right, but what really stands out is the unique location of the EuroClub, at one of Stockholm’s most beautiful places, at the waterfront in front of the Royal Palace.There will be magic.

The date for the 2016 Eurovsion Welcome Reception/Opening Ceremony is yet to be confirmed.
