A total of 35 broadcasters will return from Liverpool 2023, as well as Belgium’s French-speaking Walloon broadcaster RTBF (who alternate participations with VRT, the Dutch-speaking Flemish broadcaster) and Luxembourg’s RTL who take part for the first time since 1993.

Sweden will host the 68th Eurovision Song Contest following Loreen’s triumph in Liverpool in May 2023 with Tattoo; her victory means that Ireland and Sweden are now tied for the most Eurovision Song Contest wins, with 7 each.

May will mark the third time that Malmö has hosted the Eurovision Song Contest following the 1992 and 2013 editions, and it will be the first time the Eurovision Song Contest hasn’t visited a capital city for 5 consecutive Contests.
