How do fans enjoy Eurovision?
From today on, all Eurovision fans gather in Copenhagen to enjoy Europe’s favorite TV show. There are a hundred different ways you can make the most of this week.
If you work for the media and have a press accreditation, you won’t have much time for tourism during the Eurovision week. Luckily enough, the little mermaid is just one waterbus stop away from the Eurovision island, so you can make a quick trip to see Copenhagen most famous girl and take a picture as souvenir.
But if you’ve got a Fan accreditation, you can enjoy the Eurovision week at its best. You can walk around the press centre and watch the rehearsal of your favorite songs, as well as attend the press conferences to support the artists. You can also enjoy a cup of coffee in the designated relaxing area or have a delicious meal in the facilities’ restaurant.
If you have a Fan accreditation you can also spend your nights dancing your favorite Eurovision hits at the Euroclub. The VEGA café, located at the heart of the city, is the euroclub for this year’s Eurovision. It features former Eurovision acts and the best Eurovision music played by the best eurovision DJ’s of the whole continent.
If you don’t have any kind of accreditation, don’t worry! The danes have scheduled many activities and the event programme for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen offers some 180 events! The music will start pumping from 4th May on, when Gammeltorv and Nytorv squares are turned into Eurovision Village. You can also enjoy the Fan Eurovision Fan Mile, which will run along the Strøget and theCity Hall Square.
