Just about two months ago, everyone got to witness a historic win, not only for Loreen, but also for Sweden. The country will host it’s 7th contest in 2024 and now we know exactly where we are going.

Malmö 2024

Shortly after Sweden’s victory in Liverpool, the interest for hosting the contest was expressed across the country, but some cities knew quite fast, that the possibility wasn’t there, which left us with 4 potential cities in the end, those being Stockholm, Malmö, Gothenburg and Örnsköldsvik.

The Swedish broadcaster (SVT) are very familiar with their vision and idea for hosting the Eurovision Song Contest, especially since they even hosted 2 recent editions, back in 2013 and 2016. SVT clearly plans to be well prepared, in order to make a wonderful show for viewers across the world next year, so without waiting any further, the choice has fallen on Malmö.

The city has hosted the contest in the past, not only once, but twice! Now in 2024, we will be going to Malmö for the third time. The city got it’s first Eurovision experience back in 1992, when the contest was held in Malmö Ice Stadium, back when the contest was at a much small scale. Then the contest returned to the city in 2013, after Loreen was victorious in Baku, as the contest had changed over the 20+ years difference, then so had the arena, as we headed into Malmö Arena.

Now, in 2024, once again thanks to Loreen, we are going back into Malmö Arena on the 7th, 9th and 11th of May 2024.

Logistics around Malmö

For those who are wondering, whether Malmö can host it again or if it’s worth a visit, then we got you covered on the important stuff for now.

Malmö is the third largest city in all of Sweden, only smaller than Gothenburg and Stockholm. In order to visit Malmö, visitors can come in by bus, boat, plane and train. The city does have it’s own airport, but it’s small and located quite far from the city center, hence why most travelers tend to aim for Copenhagen airport instead.

The city offers great ways of transportation, and is very central focused, so most of the events will occur relatively close next to each other, within a fair walking distance, only the arena where the contest will be held, might be worth taking with transportation.

As most will aim to travel through Copenhagen airport, it can be said that there are trains going between the two cities all day, which would be the recommended way, but should hotel prices in Malmö become to expensive, there are also daily bus trips between the two cities.

The city also hosts around up to 180 different nationalities in the districts, and offers all kinds of cultures, among it’s 350.000+ citizens.

Since 2013, the city has expanded a lot, especially surrounding where the Eurovision Song Contest will be held. Malmö Arena is located in the district of Hyllie, which has evolved a lot with multiple hotels, a huge shopping center, an exhibition hall and a lot more being built there, when it comes to activities in the area.

All of these things are what contributed to giving Malmö this third chance.

Back in Liverpool, Loreen became only the second ever person to win the competition for a second time, as a performer. She also gave Sweden their 7th victory in the contest, giving Sweden the title as the shared most victorious country in the competition, along with Ireland. Thanks to her winning performance of her song “Tattoo“, we will now see you in Malmö in 2024.
