The Eurovision Song Contest 2018 will be held in the Altice Arena in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. The stage has been designed by Florian Wieder, the German stage designer who was responsible for the 2017 stage as well. Four key points, liked to the culture and history of Portugal, will be visible on stage. The key points are: navigation, sea, ships and maps. The different logos of this year’s contest also feature the four key points.
The stage design is clearly inspired by the ocean theme, resonating with Portugal’s historical background and the symbolic fact that the ocean connects everyone.
