Eurovision artists come to Amsterdam for Ukraine benefit | show

A large number of former song festival artists are participating in a benefit for Ukraine in Amsterdam. The event will take place on Tuesday under the name Embrace Ukraine on the Museumplein.

The Ukrainian song contest winners Kalush Orchestra (2022), Jamala (2016) and Ruslana (2004) will perform. The Danish Emmelie de Forest (winner in 2013) and the Austrian Conchita Wurst (2014) are also present, as are former participants Verka Serduchka (Ukraine 2007), Blind Channel (Finland 2021) and Malik Harris (Germany 2022). The organization has also roped S10. She will play her Eurovision song The depth to interpret.

The event is free and will last approximately two hours, the Ukrainian organizer 1+1 Media announced. In addition to performances, there are contributions from various politicians and activists.

With the event, the organization wants to draw attention to Ukraine’s desire to become a member of the European Union. At the same time, it also wants to raise money for the victims of the war with Russia.

Conversations with BBC

The Eurovision Song Contest will not take place in Ukraine next year. The umbrella organizer European Broadcasting Union (EBU) does not consider it safe to organize the event there in view of the war in Ukraine. EBU is now starting talks with British broadcaster BBC, the number two this year. British media reported yesterday that if Ukraine could not organize the song festival, the United Kingdom would take on that task. Glasgow would have been designated as the venue for the 68th edition of the European music competition.
