Candidate Eurovision Song Contest 2020

You must have heard by now that we're aiming to bring the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 to Maastricht and the surrounding region. Maastricht has all the cards in its favour: its location, its hotels, its surroundings,
its people, and its allure. You don’t get more European than here.
We're sure you agree that this fantastic event simply must take place here!

Come Closer

Maastricht; an internationally oriented city on the crossroads of Europe. Where North, South, East and West come together. A city that has everything yet is well laid out and rich in character and atmosphere. The capital of a region known for its hospitality; where you can be who you are. A place that feels like a town square: the heart of Europe.

On behalf of The Netherlands, Maastricht and Limburg invites our European friends to come closer. Closer to the artists. Closer to the music. Closer to each other. Because when you come close enough, you experience something special. You see the details that make the difference. You touch and feel. You hear what otherwise is lost. You inspire yourself through taste and smell. Welcome to Maastricht and Limburg, where we will celebrate an intimate and intense Eurovision Song Contest. Closer than ever before.
