EUROVISION.TV REPORTS / UKRAINE – Host Broadcaster UA:PBC and the Reference Group, the governing body of the Eurovision Song Contest, have both been candid in stating that there have been challenges with organising the forthcoming competition in Ukraine.
On Monday the Reference Group met again and received an update on how the plans were proceeding. Today we can give you a sneak peek of the stage design for Kyiv 2017. The concept has a circular footprint, which exemplifies the theme for the contest this year; celebrating diversity.
The stage was created by Florian Wieder, who created the concepts for three previous contests. The design for 2017 symbolises Ukraine being the centre of Europe in May and allows fans to be as close to the performers as possible. The dynamic stage design, which incorporates multiple media surfaces, will create a unique setting for each act, allowing every performer to shine on the night.
