Just like Christmas, Eurovision is coming! Unless you’ ve been living under a rock, you can’t possibly have failed to notice that Emmelie de Forrest won this year, bringing Eurovision back to Denmark for the third time…
Now listen up. The first batch of tickets will go on sale tomorrow at 10am via http://www.billetlugen.dk/eurovision
Besides the Final on Saturday 10 May 2014 – which is taking place at Refshaleøen (or “Eurovision Island”, as it has quaintly been dubbed) – there will be tickets on sale for eight (count ’em) other shows! Afternoon shows which will be suitable for families. And jury shows, where you can live the excitement of the best part – the voting! “Nul point” anyone? 😉
You can read up on the various shows here http://www.visitcopenhagen.com/joinus
For information in Danish, go to http://www.dr.dk/melodigrandprix/
And, hey, don’t worry if you don’t manage to secure tickets tomorrow morning. Because the logisitics for the show haven’t yet been sorted out yet, which means that only one third of the tickets will be sold tomorrow. The remainder will be released for sale next year, starting 31 January 2014.
And the twitter hashtag for Eurovision in Denmark? #Joinus Will you? Then you’d better get stocked up and get ready to fly the flag!
