Over the past couple of days, the heads of delegations meeting for the 2016 Junior Eurovision Song Contest has been taking place in the Maltese capital city of Valletta which will host the contest itself on November 20th. At the meeting, the host broadcaster of this year’s show, PBS, has been presenting its plans for the contest to the participating delegations. This evening, this culminated in the unveiling of the stage design for the contest and you can see an artist’s impression of the stage below, courtesy of PBS:
While the 2016 Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be taking place in multiple venues across Valletta, the majority of the contest will be taking place in the Mediterranean Conference Centre. Over the next six weeks, this venue “will be totally transformed into a modern television complex with a live audience” according to PBS. They continue to say that the stage “will be energetic and modern while still retaining the hall’s characteristics”.
The stage is a further representation of the theme of the 2016 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Embrace, which “was inspired by the core values of this festival, that is, connectivity, diversity, creativity and respect”.
