There will be opportunities to “meet and greet” and interview some of participating artists at the Euroclub, run by the OGAE fan club, at the Camp and Furnace venue between Wednesday 3 and Friday 5 May.
Details on precise timings and arrangements will be available shortly.
Access will be available to those with M and FM accreditation that can be collected from the arena during the first week of rehearsals. OGAE Members will also be able to attend these sessions.
TikTok Lives with all 37 artists will also take place during the first week of rehearsals on Wed 3, Thurs 4, Fri 5 and Sat 6 May.
Other interviews with artists during the first week of rehearsals can be arranged directly with the Head of Media for each respective country in a suitable location.
ACCESS TO REHEARSALS AND LIVE SHOWS
In a change from recent years, media representatives will no longer be able to view or access any individual artist rehearsals taking place between Sunday 30 April and Saturday 6 May.
This is to allow all artists to rehearse in private and the production to perfect each performance before it is seen in full when dress rehearsals begin on Monday 8 May. Excerpts from first rehearsals will be shared on TikTok and second rehearsals on YouTube in the evening after each day's rehearsals. Some participating broadcasters will also share highlights on their digital channels.
Media representatives will be able to go inside the arena during the first Dress Rehearsal of each Live Show (on Monday 8, Wednesday 10 and Friday 12 May).
These rehearsals will also be viewable in the Media Centre and the Online Media Centre. Other Dress Rehearsals will have an audience and a valid ticket will be required to enter the arena.
A limited number of agency photographers will be able to access the Live Shows (on Tuesday 9, Thursday 11 and Saturday 13 May) inside the arena by request, but all other accredited media will need to be in possession of a valid ticket to do so.
