This page is a list of cities and venues that have hosted the Eurovision Song Contest, one or more times. Future venues are shown in italics. Since 1958, the host city has customarily been in the winner country of the previous year. There have been exceptions, however, when certain issues have prevented the winner to host the following year's contest. The host country then passed to the country that had come second, or a country that agreed to. Such events have been in 1960, 1963, 1972, 1974 and 1980.
