An alternative online broadcast, to take place at the same time as the Eurovision final on Saturday 18 May - and which will include LGBT+ and drag performers - is the latest move in an ongoing campaign to boycott this year’s Song Contest.
The online broadcast - which is called Globalvision and will go live to gigs in Bethlehem, Dublin, Haifa and London - is part of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, the country hosting this year’s Eurovision event (in the city of Tel Aviv).
The movement urges boycotts against the country over the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The push to boycott Eurovision is quickly gathering pace. Earlier this month, a number of groups called on Madonna to cancel her planned performance at the event, while in January more than 60 LGBT+ groups from across Europe came together to urge gay people to turn their backs on the Song Contest.
In a statement about Globalvision, its organisers explained that the show would combine live streams from gigs on the night of Eurovision 2019 with music videos and messages from artists around the world.
