Please post any and all discussions regarding the contest itself, host country and city, organisation, rumours and other topics not related to any specific country's selection process.
Maastricht's MECC confirmed they are going to issue a bid as well. It has a capacity of around 30.000.It will be interesting to see where the contest will be next year. I sense the following cities and venues will be considered in the bidding process.
Amsterdam - Ziggodome - 17k
Rotterdam - Ahoy Arena - 15k
Utrecht - Jaarbeurs - 30k
Arnhem - GelreDome - 41k
The Hague - Carl Jeans Stadion - 15k
As a Dutch person I personally find Amsterdam to be overrated, and I avoid the city. Cities like Maastricht, The Hague and Utrecht to me are way more beautiful.just let it be Amsterdam, it's obviously one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and in The Netherlands.
Absolutely Agree, I personally would love it to be in Maastricht, Wouldn't it be great to have Andre Rieu as an interval act next year! I love his music!As a Dutch person I personally find Amsterdam to be overrated, and I avoid the city. Cities like Maastricht, The Hague and Utrecht to me are way more beautiful.
It would be a shame if it was Amsterdam, theres a hell of a lot more to the Netherlands than Amsterdam and Rotterdam.Oh I agree, André Rieu as an interval act would be absolutely epic, and I have a feeling he would do it if the contest ends up in his hometown Maastricht. I'm sure that behind the screens the Maastricht committee already talked to him. But I'm sure it's going to end up in Amsterdam, because our media is very Amsterdam focussed.
It would be nice to see Anouk and also The Common Linnets too.I hope to see Anouk next year. She was the beginning of a new era for the Netherlands in the Eurovision. I still remember the media fuss after the semi night portraying her on the entire pages on Dutch newspapers.
