Stockholm's Globe will host Eurovision 2016

Stockholm's Globe Arena will host the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest with both the semifinals and the final being held in the capital. 

Sweden's Måns Zelmerlöw brought the show to his home country after winning in Vienna this year with his hit "Heroes". But even before his victory, Swedish Television had contacted a few venues in different Swedish cities about hosting the 2016 edition.

Sweden last hosted the musical competition in 2013 in the southern city of Malmö, the public broadcaster reports.

The organizers will also use two other arenas of the Globen compound, Hovet and Annexet, to host the press center and the delegations.

"I look forward to receiving all of Europe in Stockholm and one of the world's biggest TV events. Eurovision is both a music event and a popular event, and in Stockholm we'll make sure we offer both," SVT chief executive Hanna Stjärne says.
