Eurovision Weekend – Danish singers Kirsten Siggaard (Hot Eyes) and DQ plus the Ann Sophie from Germany are the Eurovision stars at this year’s Eurovision Weekend, which is taking place in Berlin 17-19 July. They will perform at the Grand Gala at the Pfefferberg area in central Berlin.
The Eurovision Weekend has established itself as an important off-season event for Eurovision fans all over Europe – two months after the Eurovision Song Contest, it is a big get-together to relive the Eurovision spirit.
This year it’s the fourth edition of the Eurovision Weekend, which is organized once a year by the Berlin ESC fan group (with support of the two fanclubs OGAE Germany and EC Germany) plus an invited OGAE fanclub from a different country. After Finland (2012), Israel (2013) and the United Kingdom (2014), the Danish OGAE fanclub melodigrandprixfans.dk is teaming up this year.
Fans from all over Europe are invited to Berlin. The Eurovision Weekend provides a great opportunity for all ESC fans to meet, chat, dance and enjoy a whole weekend in the Eurovision community.
This year’s programme:
- Friday night: Welcome Party with ESC karaoke and disco
- Saturday: possibility to join sightseeing tours offered by the Berlin fangroup
- Saturday night: Grand Gala – “Fans sing for fans Contest” (ESC fans perform Eurovision songs, with voting); concert with Kirsten Siggaard, Ann Sophie and DQ; after the Gala, the party continues on the Eurovision dancefloor
- Sunday: Danish-German brunch with Eurovision Quiz
