The stage design for the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest has been unveiled ahead of the grand finale in Malmö, Sweden, on May 11th.

Lighting and Screen Content designer Fredrik Stormby from Green Wall Designs – the creative house who worked on Beyoncé's Renaissance Tour, ABBA Voyage and The 1975's At Their Very Best tour – and production designer Florian Wieder have been tasked with designing and delivering a large-scale and visually impressive show to a global audience of over 160 million Euro-pop fans.

New for 2024 is the placement of the stage, in the centre of the arena, creating a unique 360-degree immersive experience for the audience and viewers at home. The cross-shaped stage platform is comprised of movable LED cubes allowing flexibility for each performance. The focal point of the design is a centrepiece of video and light above the stage again faciliating each country to create a unique look for their Eurovision entry.
