Eurovision event program for Copenhagen: One big street party
The city of Copenhagen has released the last details of the many events planned for the Eurovision weeks in April and May, adding performances to the already published Eurovision Village program.
There is more than enough Eurovision events, but the program also offers performances by non-Eurovision Danish musicians.
“It looks like it will be a gigantic street party in the heart of Copenhagen, with free pleasures and a buzz of life we have probably never seen before,” said Ulrich Ammundsen of project management company Host City Copenhagen to dr.dk.
Dúné and Electric Lady Lab among performers
Popular Danish groups Electric Lady Lab and Dúné have been booked for Eurovision Village, and also include Mother Lewinsky, Echo Me, Blushes, Louise Nordstrøm, Michael Blicher, Esben Svane, Julias Moon, Heimat, and an ABBA tribute group.
The Olsen Brothers at Opening Ceremony
The Red Carpet Opening Ceremony event will take place at the Copenhagen City Hall on Sunday, May 4, where the Eurovision stars will get to walk in front of press and fans, before arriving at the opening ceremony. Here, the 2000 Eurovision winners The Olsen Brothers have been booked to perform. They will also be performing at the FRB Dage festival on the night before the Grand Final.
Johnny Logan, three-time Eurovision winner, will be performing at Eurovision Village and so will Danish Grand Prix-legends from the 80’s, Kirsten and Søren.
Copenhagen Pride organization creates entertainment show for Eurovision Village
The Copenhagen Pride organization will create the Eurovicious Pride Square at Rainbow Square, right next to the City Hall Square, hosting many LGBT themed events. But the organization will also create a show for Eurovision Village to be performed on Wednesday, May 7, where Ashibah, Drama Queen, and Camille Grey will entertain, hosted by Christian Vincent.
Copenhagen event app
If you use an iPhone, an app has been created with the program for the events. No Android version is available.
Get Eurovision merchandise
If you buy your 2014 Eurovision merchandise in Copenhagen, you will avoid the steep shipping prices currently in place on the official online shop. It has been announced that shops will be located at both Eurovision Island and in Eurovision Village.
