#EurovisionAgain visits another mystery year this Saturday

Join us for #EurovisionAgain this Saturday 17 July 📼

Eurovision rewatch party #EurovisionAgain returns this Saturday, as once again the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) raids the vaults of a national broadcaster to give fans the chance to experience a classic Contest together.

What’s Another Year?

This Saturday (17 July) we’ll visit another classic Eurovision Song Contest at 21:00 CEST – but what is #EurovisionAgain and how can you join in?

In a nutshell: the official Eurovision Song Contest YouTube channel premieres a classic Contest from yesteryear at 21:00 CEST on the third Saturday of each month – but the year isn’t revealed until 15 minutes beforehand.

Fans are invited to watch it in sync, download scorecards and Tweet along using the hashtag: #EurovisionAgain.

Madrid was the June destination for #EurovisionAgain; it was the first time in over 50 years that the 1969 Eurovision Song Contest had been broadcast in full. You can still watch that Contest until this weekend over on the official Eurovision YouTube channel.

#EurovisionAgain

#EurovisionAgain began in March 2020 as a weekly way for fans to catch-up with one another online as COVID-19 restrictions led to national lockdowns and the eventual cancellation of the Eurovision Song Contest.

Eurovision enthusiasts followed the @EurovisionAgain account on Twitter and tweeted along to the retro shows using the hashtag #EurovisionAgain – causing the parties to become a globally trending topic on more than 20 occasions and raising over £25,000 for charities in the process.

The synchronised re-watch parties will take place on the third-Saturday of each month in 2021:

  • Saturday 17 July

  • Saturday 21 August

  • Saturday 18 September

  • Saturday 16 October

  • Saturday 20 November

#EurovisionAgain will then step aside for Junior Eurovision and National Final Season 2022, though don’t rule out a one-off edition like the Semi-Finalist special last year.

As always, the Contests could be any of those available from the archives of Eurovision.tv or previous Host Broadcasters – and the year isn’t revealed until 15 minutes prior to it premiering on the official Eurovision YouTube channel. The EBU aims to keep each Contest online for at least one month after their debut (though this depends on individual broadcasters).

Fans are encouraged to prepare snacks, download the scorecards and tweet along using the hashtag #EurovisionAgain – because Eurovision is best watched together.

You have never been to my show…

Of course, some Contests are easier to secure than others – as you can imagine, broadcast rights for television shows are extremely complicated things, especially when you mix in the copyrights of a bunch of songs and consider that some broadcasters (and even countries) no longer exist!

Behind the scenes, broadcasters are going to great lengths to assist in the finding and signing off of classic Contests.

There’s a lot to unravel prior to 2004, but it’s our mission to bring you the highest quality versions of as many Eurovision Song Contests as we can over the next few years.
