Eurovision 2010: Share the Moment
The 2010 contest in Norway’s capital Oslo took place under the slogan “Share the Moment”. And from Lena’s groundbreaking victory to the Madcon flashmob to stage invasion during Spain’s performances — lots of moments were shared on the Oslo Eurovision stage.
Eurovision 2011: Feel Your Heart Beat
Following Germany’s victory in Norway, the contest was organised under the slogan “Feel your heart beat!”. The stage was of enormous proportions and was sonically supported by a heartbeat that created suspense and excitement. Juries and voters felt their hearts beat the most for Azerbaijan’s Ell and Nikki, who took the contest to Baku.
Eurovision 2012: Light Your Fire
“Light your fire!” is a slogan perfectly matching the host nation Azerbaijan, often called the “land of fire”. The theme matched the orange and yellow colour scheme, creating a fitting visual concept. And even though Loreen’s performance was dark and snowy, she took the field by storm and brought the contest back to Sweden.
Eurovision 2013: We Are One
Supported with an anthem from none other than Avicii, 2013’s contest in Malmö took place under the slogan “We Are One”. The butterfly represented something small that turns into a beautiful and powerful element, taking on the well-known butterfly effect. And of course, the message of the slogan is all about unity while taking into account the diversity of all participating nations.
Eurovision 2014: #joinus
The “#joinus” slogan for 2014’s contest in Copenhagen is featured right at the centre that year’s logo. The diamond shape was also recreated through the stage inside the B&W Hallerne. Countries from all over Europe once again joined the contest, including a very special interval performance from Australia’s Jessica Mauboy.
Eurovision 2015: Building Bridges
Eurovision 2015 in Vienna was special for the entire Eurovision family as it marked the contest’s 60th anniversary. “Building Bridges” referred to both musical and cultural ways of building bridges to different cultures and people all over Europe — and even beyond, as Australia made its competitive debut at the contest.
Eurovision 2016: Come Together
The dandelion in the 2016 logo, is made up of many different elements while also showcasing strength, power and unity. “Come Together” was the slogan for 2016’s contest in Stockholm. And from memorable interval performances to Jamala winning for Ukraine, it also included a guest appearance from the US superstar Justin Timberlake.
Eurovision 2017: Celebrate Diversity
“Celebrate Diversity” sums up everything that Eurovision is about: An opportunity for people of different countries and backgrounds to unite and celebrate across three shows filled with music. The 2017 contest in Kyiv was all about celebrating the common spirit as well as our unique elements.
Eurovision 2018: All Aboard
The main emblem of 2018’s slogan “All Aboard!” is a seashell. This resonates with the maritime roots of host city Lisbon. as well as Eurovision’s fundamental values. And in keeping with the slogan, the 2018 contest welcomed aboard a record-equaling 43 countries.
Eurovision 2019: Dare to Dream
The 2019 slogan was “Dare to Dream”. The logo, made up of layering triangles, resembled a star. Unsurprisingly, the idea was to show that the “future stars of Tel Aviv” are coming together for Israel third hosting of the contest.
