Oleh Psiuk (Kalush Orchestra) says:
We have never been to Liverpool before and you know, performing where the Beatles themselves started will be very inspiring. We believe that this year’s organisers of Eurovision 2023 will be able to best convey the Ukrainian atmosphere in the design of the show in Liverpool.
Claire McColgan CBE (Culture Liverpool Director) says:
From talking to previous host cities we know the official Eurovision Village is a key part of the Eurovision experience and, as with our whole host city offer, we wanted Liverpool’s programme to go above and beyond what you would normally expect in a fan zone.
Across nine days, there will be a true celebration of music and unity, with household names, international acts and up-and-coming talent taking to the stage and performing – all against the stunning backdrop of our waterfront.
Ukraine is of course the thread which runs through everything, and as well as acts on the stage it is really important for us to dedicate areas that are focused on all aspects of Ukrainian culture.
More details on the Eurovision Village and performing acts will be revealed in the coming days by the City of Liverpool.
