Tomorrow: Week 1 of Eurovision 2015 begins with first rehearsals!
It has been exactly a year since the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2014, taking place on May 10 last year in Copenhagen.
Now, Vienna is ready to receive delegations from all over Europe, with the first rehearsals starting tomorrow!
The stars are arriving
Today marked the opening of the Vienna press center, also located in the Wiener Stadthalle complex, and the artists of this year have begun arriving. Among them are Uzari and Maimuna from Belarus and Trijntje Oosterhuis from The Netherlands!
First rehearsal tomorrow at 12
Eduard Romanyuta of Moldova will be the first of the 40 entries to rehearse on the fully completed stage in Vienna, when his first rehearsal starts at 12:00 CET, lasting 30 minutes. The first rehearsals are closed for the press.
Open rehearsals on Thursday
The first open rehearsals, where the press has access to the venue, start on Thursday, May 14. We will of course be attending the open rehearsals and provide rehearsal videos and galleries of each participating country.
