Comment on security in Stockholm during Eurovision Song Contest.
Information på svenska
The City of Stockholm is responsible for the security during Eurovision Song Contest. We are used to large high profile events and are working specifically with event security, safety and well-being all year around. Stockholm Globe Arenas is the largest venue district in Stockholm with more than 20 years experience of large events.
We have made our plans from a perspective of a high security level, and are well prepared to welcome Europe to our beautiful City. Safety and security are important elements in creating a fantastic event. Our goal is that all visitors should have a wonderful experience.
As with all larger events, we recommend all visitors to:
- Arrive well ahead of time
- Use public transport to the Globe area.
- Not bring large bags, large cameras, umbrellas or selfie-stick. However, cellphone cameras and smaller compact cameras are welcome.
There are plenty of places to eat and drink in the area. It is not allowed to bring food and drinks into the arena area.
The special team formed for the arrangement in the Globe has continuous planned meetings with the police and relevant authorities. We do not comment on the security around the events.
