The slogan for Eurovision 2019 has been revealed by Jon Ola Sand, the Executive Supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest. The first time a slogan has been used officially at the contest was back in 2002, and since then has become an important part of the foundation of the contest.
The slogan for Eurovision 2019 is ‘Dare to Dream’ and as Jon Ola Sand explains, ‘This aspirational tag line represents and symbolises everything that the Eurovision Song Contest is about. It’s about inclusion. It’s about diversity. It’s about unity’
He continues, ‘Being on that stage, daring to dream you can win the Eurovision Song Contest, be brave enough, be confident enough, standing there performing for a world audience is something that is worth the dream. This is what Netta did last year, when she performed in Lisbon. She went on that stage with a dream — a dream to bring the Eurovision Song Contest back to Israel. And she succeeded. And next year in May, in Tel Aviv, we will all meet to celebrate the good values of the Eurovision Song Contest and we will do it here, with the help of broadcaster KAN and the Israeli team.’
There will be theme artwork to accompany the slogan, however this will be revealed at a later date as well as the list of participating nations. The slogan and theme artwork provide the creative framework of the contest and will influence the visual identity including the postcards and stage design, but also influence opening and interval acts.
The contest will be held in Tel Aviv on the 14th, 16th and 18th of May.
