Earlier this afternoon, the European Broadcasting Union made public their selection for both host city and venue of the 2015 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. Conchita Wurst and her entry "Rise Like a Phoenix" written by Mason, Patulka, Zuckowski and Maas gave Austria a second victory at the esteemed international victory, noting that it was eagerly awaited considering that the other one took place almost 50 years ago. Vienna, capital of Austria, has been selected as the host city of the 60th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, following a bidding process which lasted several months and saw three cities battle it out towards the end.

ORF, the host broadcaster and the EBU, organising committee also confirmed that the venue will be the Wiener Stadhalle with an overall capacity of approximately 16,000 people. Set to take place on the 19th, 21st and 23rd May 2015, the Vienna was seen as the right choice as it is "the city of music and arts in the heart of Europe", according to Alexander Wrabetz, Director General at ORF who went onto add that "together we will do everything to assure a successful 60th Eurovision Song Contest".
