Eurovision Song Contest 2012 – What did it cost?
It’s known under many names: Eurovision Song Contest, Concours Eurovision de la Chanson, Конкурс песни Евровидение, Песма Евровизије, Avroviziya Mahnı Müsabiqəsi, Eurovisiesongfestival, and probably 50 more…
Let me tell you from the start: I am not in favor of it. In my opinion it’s a humongous waste of time and money. But how much…?
That is a question I hope to answer here. I hope to collect a complete listing of how much money each participating country has spent in total (national part + (if applicable) international part) on the Eurovision Song Contest 2012.
|Country||Estimated cost (in million €)||[source]||notes|
|Azerbaijan||50||NRK||The building costs of Crystal Hall, €105 million, have not been included since this building was planned to be built anyway.|
Yes, this table is still quite empty. And that’s where you come in! Do you know how much your country spent on ESC2012? Let me know! Post a comment. Don’t forget to mention the source of your information though…
