Junior Eurovision 2022: Stage construction underway
Friday, 11 November 2022

  • The Junior Eurovision 2022 stage set up is underway at the Karen Demirchyan Sports Complex in Yerevan, Armenia where the next contest will take place on December 11, 2022.

    The organisers of the 20th edition of Junior Eurovision 2022 have commenced the construction of the stage that will host the 16 delegates of this year's competition. 

    Earlier in October the hosting broadcaster, APMTV, had revelaed the stage design. The stage set up predicts a big circular stage on which the performers will deliver their songs while there is space for a standing audience in front of it. 

    Now the actual set up of the stage is in progress and the first images from inside the venue going public.
