After Lisbon last year, Osram will once again be the official partner to shine a light on the artists of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) in Tel Aviv. The world's largest TV entertainment event will take place from May 12 to 18 at the International Congress Center in Tel Aviv. Under the slogan “Dare to dream!”, 42 artists will fight to bring the victory home to their country. Both at the two semifinals on May 14 and 16 and at the final on May 18, we will support the artists, and we will create a unique atmosphere for high emotions.
Our motto for this year is tailored to the venue: “#FeelTheVibe” reflects the city’s vitality and energy. Like no other city, Tel Aviv embodies a blend of tradition and innovation, successfully combining the best of history and modernity. This feeling is also transferred to the ESC and is supported by our innovative lighting on stage and in the city.
Bar Refaeli, Erez Tal, Assi Azar and Lucy Ayoub will be hosting the live shows.
A show with hundreds of entertainment luminaires from OSRAM
Along with lighting designers Ronen Najar and Dakar Azulay, the numerous luminaires are an essential part of the spectacular light show on the ESC stage. Hundreds of them and therefore a substantial proportion of the entire lighting system will again be provided by Claypaky, our innovative entertainment brand. The company is one of the world's leading brands for entertainment lighting and with its lighting solutions has played a huge part in the success of the ESC shows over the past several years.
First introduced in 2019, the Sharpy Plus is one of the highlights on the main stage. Axcor 600 spotlights with integrated SSL technology will also be part of the show. The Unico from the Scenius family will also provide great effects again. Off stage the Sharpy Wash will be used, completing the Claypaky lighting concept.
In addition to the Claypaky products, luminaires from other brands featuring OSRAM lamp technology such as Robe’s BMFL will be integrated into the system.
