The European Broadcasting Union and SVT have announced that ‘United by Music’ has been chosen as the slogan of the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 and all of the upcoming Eurovision Song Contests.
‘United by Music’ was created by the BBC to reflect the unique partnership between the United Kingdom, Ukraine and the ESC 2023 Host City – Liverpool. This logo also demonstrates the power of music to bring people together around the world.
After a great success of the ESC 2023 logo, it was agreed by the Eurovision Song Contest Reference Group (the Contest governing board) and SVT to use ‘United by Music’ for the next Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö, Sweden. Following this decision, it was decided to stick to this slogan for all future editions of the Eurovision Song Contest. This decision creates continuity and consistency for future Eurovision Song Contests.
The new permanent slogan will be a reminder of the mission of the Eurovision Song Contest and its ability to unite people through music. This also reflects Europe coming together for the contest.
The logo which will accompany the slogan for the 68th Eurovision Song Contest, will be released soon.
