Today the first pictures of the stage for the Eurovision Song Contest were revealed. The host venue will be Vienna’s Wiener Stadthalle and earlier this week they relinquished all control to the Eurovision Song Contest for the next month. Eurovision organisers got stuck right in, and began unloading the first of 300 trucks with all the equipment needed to set up the stage for the week long competition which will kick off with Semi Final 1 on 19th May and will culminate with the Final on Saturday 23rd May.
It was announced earlier this week what the opening act of the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final will entail. The 2015 ceremony will kick off with a video from Schonbrunn Palace of Vienna’s Philharmonic Orchestra playing the music of Mozart and Beethoven.
