Eurovision Song Contest
◄1959    Wiki Eurovision Heart (Infobox).svg    1961►

The Eurovision Song Contest 1960 was the fifth in the series, and was held on 29 March 1960 in London. France's win this year was their second in the contest.

Although the Netherlands had won the contest in 1959, the Dutch television service declined to host another contest so soon after staging the event in 1958. The honour of hosting the contest therefore passed to the United Kingdom, which had come second in 1959.
