11 months ago
Liverpool loves a good party and the biggest one is coming to the city in May when Eurovision arrives in town.
And it’s not just about the contest and the artists competing for douze points from the panel of judges across the globe.
As well as a cultural festival, a special Eurovillage at the Pier Head, a pop-up Sonia city trail, and tons of themed events across Merseyside, one of the biggest celebrations is happening at Camp and Furnace, the Baltic’s brilliant events space that’s been chosen to host EuroClub.
What’s EuroClub? We thought you’d never ask…
What is EuroClub?
EuroClub is the official venue chosen for Eurovision fans to come together to support the event and soak up everything the city has to offer. It’s been a staple of Eurovision week for years, and it’s all about inviting people to party and celebrate their shared love of the world’s best song contest.
Camp and Furnace has been chosen as Liverpool’s EuroClub by the OGAE which means it’ll be welcoming thousands of fans and, as well as a great line-up of the best Eurovision DJs around, there’ll be live acts and special appearances from Eurovision people past and present.
Jack Clarke, head of events for Camp and Furnace, says: “Every city that hosts Eurovision has had a EuroClub, and Camp and Furnace are lucky enough to be this year’s EuroClub.”
What is the OGAE?
The OGAE is the Organisation Générale des Amateurs de l’Eurovision, the world’s biggest Eurovision fan club, made up of 42 different fan clubs from around the world. There’s a lot of love for Eurovision!
When is EuroClub happening?
EuroClub will be opening its doors every night from Friday, May 5 to Saturday, May 13. Jack adds: “We’ll be open nine days, hosting people right through until 4am in the morning and the décor, the music, the live acts… all that will hopefully wow people for that time.”
Who will be performing?
The full list has yet to be confirmed but we already know that the amazing Conchita Wurst, winner of Eurovision with Rise Like a Phoenix in 2014 will be there, along with 1992 and 1999 winners Linda Martin and Charlotte Perrelli. Jedward, who represented Ireland not once, but twice, will be among the line-up, along with Keiino from Norway, and Jack promises a host of other ‘special guests’.
Also, Jemini have now also beed added to the lineup, as well as Lindsay Fracas’s and Surie!
