The honour of hosting the 66th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest will be awarded to one of the candidate cities on the condition they can meet all of the criteria set out by the EBU, as well as state their ability to support the Contest through services and economic contributions.

Tomorrow morning (Wednesday 14 July) Rai (the Italian national broadcaster) will deliver bid books to the Candidate Cities and they will have until Wednesday 4 August to submit full details of their attempt to host the world’s largest live music event.

There’s a long way to go in the bidding process and though many cities have thrown their coppola in to the ring, fans are advised not to book travel or accommodation until full details of the event are revealed later in the year once a Host City has been confirmed.
