Once again, the Dutch capital of Amsterdam will be the host city for Eurovision in Concert. Several 2014 Eurovision hopefuls will take the opportunity to get familiar with the Eurovision spirit, prior to the real thing in May. In a relatively short time, the event has become a landmark in many agendas; of both fans and artists. All previous editions were sell outs.
Last year, no less than 25 countries had their entrants perform at the concert, as well as special guest, 1991 winner, Carola Häggkvist. The artists get to meet their competitors, they can get used to giving interviews and most of all: they get to meet the most dedicated Eurovision fans from all over Europe.
First three acts confirmed
In the meantime, the first three acts have been announced by the organisation: Hersi Matmuja (Albania), Valentina Monetta (San Marino) and Conchita Wurst (Austria) have confirmed their participation. More acts will be announced in the upcoming weeks. This year’s hosts will be the three time Dutch Eurovision representative Sandra Reemer (1972, 1976 and 1979) and Cornald Maas, the Dutch commentator in the Eurovision Song Contest.
