EUROVISION 2020 🇳🇱
Rotterdam has its own personal slogan: “Rotterdam. Make It Happen.” Next year, we’ll be seeing this tagline everywhere – on posters, screens and as previously mentioned even on landmarks!
50% of the city branding and city dressing budget will go to the standard posters and screens that you would imagine, whilst the remaining 50% will go to more artistic and surprising ways to dress the city. This could be comparable to Rotterdam’s “Tunnel of Love” which was set up for Valentine’s Day earlier this year (shown below), or to the way landmarks were dressed to draw attention to a Jean Paul Gaultier exposition.

The Belgian public broadcaster VRT is working feverishly to participate in Eurovision 2020, which will take place in its neighboring Netherlands! The station’s music program coordinator, Gerrit Kerremans, reveals in local media that they are likely to have their representative soon:
“If the artist we have in mind has time and responds positively, then our research stops. Various artists are consulted. We currently have one preferred candidate, number one on our wish list. This candidate is considering his possible participation in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2020. The artist concerned only wants to compete with a very strong song. That’s all I can say and I want to say about 2020.”
We met Sara De Blue in 2018 through the San Marino 1in360 National Finals, for the artist to travel for the sake of the small state of Lisbon. There he competed with the song Out of the Twilight, where he won 2nd place, giving the ticket to Jessika feat.
Jenifer Brening, who failed to qualify. Most fans have said that Sara De Blue would have managed to qualify for San Marino and want to see her on the Eurovision stage in the future. She has not ruled out this possibility at all. Already last year, her name was heard to represent her native Austria in Tel Aviv.
Yesterday, in a stream of stories on her personal Instagram page, the young singer said she was “available” to accept Eurovision songs. Interested parties can send their songs to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Austrian representative in Rotterdam would be selected by internal selection. Indeed, the coordinator of the Ö3 Eberhard Forcher will be responsible for this project for another year.

Starting from today, all artists and songwriters are welcome to submit their songs for the Swiss national selection, which will once again be held behind close doors. The songs cannot be released, nor publicly performed before the actual announcement of the Swiss representative. SRF is accepting songs until the 16th of September at 12:00pm local time on their online platform at www.srf.ch/esc.
