The BBC has officially confirmed nascent plans to broadcast the 68th Eurovision Song Contest in 2024.
Both semi-finals and the final itself will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. The contest will be taking place in Sweden, with the Grand Final taking place in the Malmö Arena on Saturday 11 May next year.
The BBC has also confirmed that the search for the United Kingdom’s act and song entry took place over the Summer. It was led by Lee Smithurst, executive producer at BBC Studios and Will Wilkin, commissioning executive at BBC Music.
Details over the UK’s entry, though, are yet to be announced.
Malmö is a city in the south of Sweden, the third largest in the country by population, after Stockholm and Gothenburg. Its Arena was the same venue Sweden used the last time it hosted the Contest, in 2013.
The 2024 Contest will mark the seventh time Sweden has hosted.
