Take us to the Discoteque...

In the Roop’s postcard, they’re hanging out at Rotterdam Centraal station. Currently there’s a 4-metre high 3D-printed Eurovision trophy outside, made from river trash as part of Rotterdam’s commitment to a sustainable contest. You can find out more about it here.

Is there a better song to open The Eurovision Song Contest 2021 than Discoteque? We've all spent over a year dancing alone, and this is the perfect bop to get this Euro party started. Grab some yellow trousers and hone your hand dancing.

This performance is also a great introduction to the biggest LED screen ever featured at Eurovision - it’s 52 metres wide by 12 metres high. It’s currently displaying the first 80s-style pink neon grid of the contest, but we promise it won’t be the last.
