The first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 is six weeks away and the first preparations of the venue, the Wiener Stadthalle, have begun!
Tuesday morning, the arena was sweeped by police canine units for security reasons and the technical preparations have begun, with the first elements making their way into the venue.
The main hall of the Wiener Stadthalle will house the big Eurovision stage, designed by Florian Wieder, who also designed the 2011 and 2012 stages.
At 44 meters wide, it will consist of 1288 LED tubes that together will shape an eye with the main stage in the middle. A 26 meter wide LED wall will be placed behind the structure.
The first artist rehearsals of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest start on May 11th.
