Dare to dream… to watch the Eurovision Song Contest online? No matter where in the world you are, you can easily live stream the global phenomenon that launched the careers of ABBA and Celine Dion with ProtonVPN.

This safe online streaming guide will help you watch the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest without compromising your privacy and security.

When does the Eurovision Song Contest start?

The 64th Eurovision Song Contest is being held in Tel Aviv, Israel, this year.

The first semifinal will begin at 9 PM CEST (Central European Summer Time), or 7 PM UTC, on Tuesday, May 14.

The second semifinal will begin at 9 PM CEST on Thursday, May 16.

And the Grand Final will begin at 9 PM CEST on Saturday, May 18.

What is the Eurovision Song Contest?

Eurovision is one of the most watched programs in the world, with the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest attracting over 186 million viewers worldwide. Countries send musicians to represent them and viewers then vote on their favorites until there is only one left. (Viewers are not allowed to vote for performers from their own country.) This year, over 41 countries will be sending artists to represent them in the competition, including Darude (of Sandstorm fame) for Finland, Hatari for Iceland, and Katie Miller-Heidke for Australia (it is still unclear how Australia qualifies for Eurovision). You can see all of the artists that will be competing in this year’s contest here. The playlist of this year’s Eurovision songs is available here.
