Flames and fires for the Austrian entry

The Makemakes are ready for their second rehearsal. Their song I Am Yours is about real friendship. Three artists transmit this message through their powerful and harmonic performance. They set the stage literally and figuratively in flames. Will their piano be damaged and how the flames works, find out below!

The first rehearsal was for the Austrian representatives a technical one to check if everything is ok, and everything suits. “There will be some slight changes and improvements on stage in Makemakes performance in today’s second rehearsal,” – said Michaela Polly-Gangl on behalf of the Austrian Delegation. Let them surprise us!
With their entry I Am Yours, the Austrian band the Makemakes want to raise the roof and let the Stadthalle figuratively and literary burn. The Makemakes’ Managing Director, Paul Estrella, explained the secret behind the fire on the piano: "It works only if the flame is not getting too hot. That’s why a special theatre flame is used in the Austrian show. A special material is applied in the piano itself, so that it is not damaged inside.” The size of flame is regulated by the ignition." Did you already visited The Makemakes home page? The artists prepared a surprise for you - not only their music but also a mini-game - The Makemakes World with beautiful graphics, original animations and exclusive song remixes based on the music videoclip Little is Much More from the Austrian band 'The Makemakes'. Start this crazy adventure skateboarding, jump your way up to the sky, fall into the limbo, surf among creatures and finish flying over the sea in a magical journey.
