The Eurovision Song Contest 2019 will be the 64th edition of the annual Eurovision Song Contest. It will take place in Tel Aviv for the first time following the country's fourth victory at the 2018 contest in Lisbon with the song "Toy", performed by Netta Barzilai. The contest will consist of two semi-finals and a final held on 14, 16 and 18 May 2019 respectively.


Following much deliberation about where the 2019 Contest would be held, on 13 September 2018 it was confirmed that it will take place for the first time in Tel Aviv, a change from previous occasions when it was held in Jerusalem in 1979 and 1999 respectively.
