We work with Members to produce the hugely popular Eurovision Song Contest and Junior Eurovision Song Contest each year.
The Eurovision Song Contest is the world’s largest live music event, reaching around 160 million viewers across 40 markets and millions more via our thriving digital channels. It is particularly popular with hard-to-reach younger audiences, attracting four times the average youth audience to that time slot and with most followers on our digital platforms aged between 16 and 34.
The Eurovision Song Contest offers EBU Members over 9 hours of entertainment at the fraction of the cost of an average prime-time production with two Semi-Finals and a Saturday night Grand Final guaranteeing mass viewing.
The event continues to attract new audiences every year and is strongly embedded in Europe’s collective culture where its values of universality, inclusivity and celebrating diversity through music resonate with audiences in participating countries and across the globe.
The Junior Eurovision Song Contest celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2022 when it reached 33 million viewers. It showcases talented young artists between the ages of 9 and 14 years old.
Both these co-productions show the power of public service media working together to create cost-effective programming that helps enrich your cultural offering, promoting European unity and launching new musical stars.
