Rising like a phoenix for the occasion that's upon us - Conchita Wurst will be in town
With just one month left until things really start getting exciting, the city of Malmö has presented its entire hosting programme.
Malena Ernman represented Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2009, and will have the honour of opening the Eurovision Village

The Skåne 'stad' has already given us a tantalising teaser of what we can expect when we get to Malmö, but on Wednesday 3 April, the city released the full programme of entertainment that it has in store for residents and visitors.

Read on to get your appetites whet and your schedules set! 

Ukraine's Go_A will be bringing Shum to the shores of Skåne

As previously revealed, the centre of the festivities for the week leading up to the Grand Final will be Eurovision Village in Folkets Park. 

Here, the larger acts will be presented on the Euphoria Stage, some more acts on the Tattoo Stage, and then the classic 'Brändan' known to locals will be transformed into the Dancing Queen Stage. You can dance, you can jive, and you can most definitely have the time of your life. 

The live broadcast of the Grand Final from Malmö Arena will be shown on big screens Eurovision Village on May 11 at 21:00 CEST. Admission is free and does not require a ticket.

Friisgatan will become Eurovision Street; a lively street with several celebratory spots interspersed with food and drink. Additionally, the area around Malmö Live and Malmö Central Station will also be hosting small venues for concerts and performances. 

It's therefore looking quite likely that wherever you end up in the city, you'll be able to get involved in something that's Eurovision Song Contest related. In short: our happy place. 

Former Barbados frontman, Alcazar member and solo superstar Magnus Carlsson is in the lineup of performers for the week

The city of Malmö has promised something for everyone. So whether it's iconic '90s dance acts that get you moving, eclectic electronica from across the globe that has you raving, or Melodifestivalen legends from down through the years that had you shouting "ROBBED" at your television – you're going to want to get yourself to the right stages at the right time.

And 'banne maj' – there WILL be drag queens!

The south of Sweden's own Elecktra will be providing sparks (and shocks?) to the city of Malmö

Here's a selection of headline highlights before you peruse the full programme:
