The 2020 Super Bowl is going to be a big one, as it will decide the champions of the NFL’s 100th season.

The Eurovision Song Contest 2020 will be the 65th anniversary of the famously flashy and over-the-top music competition, and it’s sure to draw an especially colorful crowd. Visiting nearby Amsterdam in May will allow you to attend the contest itself at Rotterdam Ahoy, just a 40-minute train ride away, and then celebrate in the biggest Dutch city. Bars, restaurants, and nightclubs will be hosting parties tied to the event.
