The official program of events for Eurovision 2015 was released earlier this week and will see the area around host venue Wiener Stadhalle transformed into the Eurovision Village from 17th May. The village will be a special area where fans can interact with other fans visiting from all over the world, can watch the live shows streamed in large public spaces on giant screens and participate in Eurovision events from quizzes, performances and even a Conchita Wurst look-a-like competition.
In addition to this Visit Vienna are running special walking tours for Eurovision fans that will give visitors a taste of every thing Vienna has to offer from classic music to food and drink and architecture. The official after party will happen every night during the week of the contest at the Euro Fan Cafe which this year will be hosted by EMS Lounge, a 25 minute tram ride from the Wiener Stadhalle. Fans can buy a weekly ticket, a nightly pass or chance their arm and pay on the door.
The Euroclub which this year will be hosted by Ottakringer Brewery will play host to journalists and competing acts in this year and previous years. See the full schedule below.
