Eurovision Island opened up its doors today, as the first press and delegations started arriving to get accreditation and check out the facilities.

This is before the first rehearsals start tomorrow, as the two Eurovision weeks kick off.

It’s quite a tent city that DR has constructed on the east side of the Eurovision venue, B&W Hallerne. Previously, the ships would launch from here and into the water, coming out of the halls that now host the arena.

Everything from the accreditation facilities and security, to the press center and backstage area is hosted by large tents.

Inside, you can in some areas almost forget you’re in a tent, if you don’t look at the ceiling. The above picture is of the information desk at the press center, with sofas for a relaxing space. Plants were being wheeled in throughout the day, as the finishing touch.

The press center also hosts a restaurant, but it will cost you an arm and a leg. 25 kroner for a cereal bar? Ouch.

The press working area is nice and spacious, though the mega screens from Malmö will be missed.

As the Danish weather was showing itself from its best side today, the outdoor space in the middle of the tents proved to be a very nice addition.

Tomorrow the first rehearsals start, which are closed to the press, but we will live blog, describe and comment as they are broadcast in the press center.
