Amsterdam Refused to Accept the International Eurovision Song Contest
OREANDA-NEWS Amsterdam refused to accept the Eurovision Song Contest in 2020, reports TASS.
According to the mayor of the capital of the Netherlands Femke Halsem, the Ziggo Dome concert hall, where the event was planned, is not available during the competition.
The city tried to find another place to hold a song contest, but the attempts were unsuccessful, as the RAI center and the Johan Cruyff Arena were also inaccessible. Similar venues are too small for Eurovision.
The cities of The Hague and Breda also said earlier that they did not intend to accept the competition. Rotterdam, Utrecht, 's-Hertogenbosch, Arnhem and Maastrich have already announced their participation in the struggle for the organization of "Eurovision-2020".
On May 8, the final of the 64th international Eurovision Song Contest was held in Tel Aviv. Duncan Lawrence from the Netherlands won the song with the song Arcade. Sergey Lazarev, representing Russia, took the third place.
