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.
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
just let it be Amsterdam, it's obviously one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and in The Netherlands.
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.
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.
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.
