About the ESC:
The Eurovision Song Contest aired for the first time in 1956 with only seven countries. Cut to this past edition, which hosted forty-two countries; we can plainly see how much the show has grown in attendance, including also entrants from outside of Europe. Each year, Eurovision focuses on a value that it then turns into the show’s theme for the year, which helps to drive home Eurovision’s focus on inclusivity, acceptance, innovation and artistry. These have included 2017’s “Celebrate Diversity” slogan and 2018’s nautical “All Aboard!” invitation.
“All Aboard!” isn’t just a shout-out to the ESC’s attitude on inclusivity, but is also a not to subtle reference to Lisbon’s coastline setting and oceanic environment. Lisbon is actually the oldest city in Western Europe and one of the oldest in the world. With respect to its history with Eurovision, Portugal has participated forty-nine times. Portugal actually held the record for most entries without a win, a losing streak they broke this year when Salvador Sobral won with "Amar pelos dois". What will make 2018 special is not only the fact that it is Portugal’s first time hosting the ESC but also because there will be forty-three countries participating, which is the largest number of participants to compete.
So, pack your swimsuits, and get yourself merched-up your favorite Fan House threads and buy your ticket ASAP! All aboard to Lisbon.
