Eurovision 2018 – It was announced earlier tonight that there would be a press conference tomorrow evening, where it was expected that we would discover the venue and dates for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018. It now appears that the announcement has been leaked early by local newspaper Observador.
In the Observador it was stated that, perhaps unsurprisingly, the MEO Arena in Lisbon will host the contest, and the contest will take place during late April and early May. This means that the dates could be 1st, 3rd and 5th May 2018 which is earlier than recent years. The other cities in the running to host the event were Gondomar, Santa Maria da Feira and Braga.
Portugal’s national broadcaster RTP will hold the official press conference tomorrow, Tuesday 25th July at 18:30 (CET) and we’ll let you know as soon as we can the confirmed dates and venue.
