WHERE: Liverpool, England
WHEN: from 09 to 13 May 2023
One of the most awaited music contests of the year lands in Liverpool, England, to decree the winner of Eurovision Song 2023 and the successor of Kalush Orchestra.
The last edition was really a success. Both in terms of visitors and audience. The final, in fact, is broadcast in Eurovision on the main television stations.
The program remains unchanged. Each artist in the competition will represent a different European country, staging her latest success. Three appointments, with the final on Saturday 13 May 2023.
Eurovision Song Contest 2023 is also an excellent opportunity to discover the beautiful Liverpool, its splendid seafront, its clubs and its monuments.
An extraordinary cultural and, of course, historical heritage. Because we are still in England!

You can easily reach Liverpool by air from major European and global destinations.
Eurovision Song Contest 2023 takes place at the M&S Bank Arena located at 16 Monarchs Quay, in the Port of Liverpool. This state-of-the-art complex is centrally located near the Royal Albert Dock and has excellent transport links. These are far preferable to the car.
Liverpool Lime Street is one of the main railway hubs in the city. Trains to/from London pass through here. The station is located in the street of the same name, about a 20-minute walk from the Arena.
The Arena is easily reached by public transport, from nearby Newington (Line 82) and Hawke Street (Lines 7 and 79).
John Lennon is the international airport serving Liverpool, well connected to many European destinations. Line 500 connects the airport directly with Gower Street, approximately 500 meters from the M&S Bank Arena. The bus takes about 40 minutes to reach its destination. Alternatively, lines 82A and 86. All the info on fares and tickets are available from this link.
37 artists representing the same number of countries are participating in the 67th edition. The program, as per tradition, will be divided into 3 phases: two semi-finals on 09 and 11 May, and the final on 13 May. The evening’s events start at 20:00. There will be 6 Preview events between Monday 08 and Saturday 13, at 20:00 and 13:00.
Artists representing Italy, Spain, Germany, France and the UK are automatically admitted to Saturday’s final.
Representing the UK for this edition will be the cheeky and honest pop of Mae Muller, a beautiful London singer-songwriter who will bring her “I wrote a Song” on stage.
