As Eurovision.tv reported last week, a Eurovision Preview Party is being organized in the UK capital London on the 25th of April. The party offers fans and media a unique opportunity to see some of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest entrants performing in the United Kingdom prior to the Contest itself. The event takes place right before the promo-weekend in Belgium and the Netherlands. Both promotion events are initiatives of well-organized Eurovision Song Contest fans.
The event also provides this year's participants with a potential stop-over on their increasingly intensive promotion tours. The venue is London’s 1,200 capacity Scala nightclub, fittingly located just a few steps away from London’s newly opened Kings Cross St Pancras International rail hub that connects London to the European mainland.
Ani Lorak (Ukraine), Euroband (Iceland), Isis Gee (Poland), Morena (Malta) and Paul Oscar, Iceland's 1997 Eurovision Song Contest representative and writer of this year's Icelandic entry are already confirmed to perform at the event. Paddy O’Connell, the BBC's Semi-Final commentator, and DJ Dave Simmons are also listed to attend the event.
