The Eurovision 2024 stage has been unveiled by the Swedish national broadcast, Azernews reports citing the Eurovision TV.

Placed in the center of the audience, the magnificent stage is cross-shaped, offering a unique 360-degree viewing experience.

Designed by Florian Wieder and Fredrik Stormby, the stage incorporates 2,168 lighting fixtures, each equipped with LED or laser sources. Extensive pre-programming over four weeks was necessary to achieve the final lighting effects.
