Back in October Eurovision 2023 organisers openly discussed Pier Head as the site of the Eurovision Village. And now the Liverpool Echo reports that the city council has officially put out the tender to oversee the site from May 5 to 13 of 2023.

The city’s tender will land the winner £85,000 as part of the five-month contract. Among other things, it includes planning Eurovision Village. It said: “This village will be created on the Pier Head site and will consist of activations, stages, live music, concessions and much more.”

If you’ve ever been to Eurovision, then you’re familiar with the Eurovision Village. Regardless of whether you have tickets to the live shows, the Eurovision Village lets you make merry with other fans in the city and get up close and personal with guest artists — including many of the participating Eurovision acts. Joining them, inevitably, are Eurovision stars from editions past as well as local artists and other invited talent. 

A real highlight of proceedings is the chance to watch outdoor screenings of both semi-finals and the grand final. For many fans the experience of making friends at Eurovision Village and enjoying the live shows with them can be just as magical, if not more so, than being inside the arena. 

In October officials openly discussed that Pier Head will play host to Eurovision Village. Faye Dwyer, the managing director of the host venue M&S Bank Arena, explicitly said Pier Head would get the honour.

“The whole city will be utilised and activated. We’ve got things like the Eurovillage that’s going to be down on Pier Head. There will be a Euroclub elsewhere in the city.”

Pier Head is easily recognisable from its stunning skyline. The Royal Liver Building, The Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building roll out one after the other, serving majesty and some very Instagrammable moments.

Pier Head is home to some of Liverpool’s best known attractions and landmarks, including The Beatles Statue and the Mersey Ferry. You’ll also find The Museum of Liverpool, which boasts an iconic top floor viewing gallery with some of the best views of Pier Head.

Stayed at the nearby Hotel Indigo for a holiday last year. Pier Head was my favourite place in the city to walk or run. It’s going to be fabulous.
