Eurofest is again teaming up with Manchester’s Boom-Bang-a-Bang party for the UK’s biggest Eurovision preview vote on Good Friday April 10th at the RVT.
We’re making it an extra special Good Friday by playing all the entries for this year’s contest and then YOU decide who should be the winner in Rotterdam!
There’s something for everyone in this year’s contest – Balkan bangers, Icelandic geek pop, Ukrainian electro-folk and even a decent song from the UK.
Plus of course all the Eurovision, Europop and Schlager hits and remixes from DJ’s Don Grant, John Hagley and Dave Simmons.
For the preview show, doors open at 8pm, with the show getting underway at 8:20pm prompt. Tickets are available online now for just £7 or on the door for £8.
Hej hej Clapham!
We have teamed up with the Two Brewers in Clapham for the second year running to do a live screening of the Melodifestivalen 2020 final on their big screen, so you can watch Sweden choosing their song for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.
This year’s MF line-up looks like one of the strongest in a few years so it will be great to watch the show together. And of course there’s a former Eurofest artist who has made it through to the final – Anna Bergendahl. We’re probably biased, but that’s our favourite in Eurofest HQ!
The date is of course Saturday 7th March and doors will open at 6pm, with the TV show starting at 7pm. We will have some seats and some standing space, so get there early if you do want a seat. We’ve got the room until at least 10.30pm so there will be a bit of time for a Mello-afterparty once the show is over, with a playlist of MF songs old and new.
Tickets are just £3 (plus booking fee) so get yours now!
Our next Eurofest will be our 30th edition – and we’ve decided to party in style!
We are proud and excited to be bringing to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, London the “people’s choice” of Eurovision 2019, the fabulous KEiiNO, on Friday 8th November.
The Norwegian trio have been the ultimate fan favourite, winning this year’s televote, with the brilliant “Spirit in the Sky” and they will be bringing their spectacular show to the RVT stage.
But that’s not all….!
Eurofest is delighted to be hosting the return of the Second Cherry contest – a celebration of songs that competed in contests across Europe for the chance to represent their countries at Eurovision – but failed. Second Cherry is their second chance; a second bite of the cherry.
After a few years hiatus, the Second Cherry team are back for 2019 accompanied by a podcast and they will be hosting the live ‘final’ at the start of Eurofest (7:45-10pm).
The audience on the night will vote as juries and form 50% of the vote. The other 50% will be from an online vote of the Second Cherry podcast listeners. Turn up, enjoy the show, vote, and then party!
Plus of course all the best Eurovision, Europop and Schlager hits and remixes from our team of DJs Don Grant, John Hagley and Dave Simmons.
Tickets are on sale now. There are two categories of ticket:
- one allows entry ALL EVENING FROM 7PM, giving you Second Cherry, Eurofest and KEiiNO;
- one allows entry AFTER 10pm, to ensure you get Eurofest and of course KEiiNO
Both priced at £10, the two categories are purely to manage numbers at Second Cherry.
For our live act we’re giddy with excitement to be joined by one of the big come-back stars of this year, the fantastic Anna Bergendahl!
Almost a decade since she represented Sweden at Eurovision with “This Is My Life“, she’s back in 2019 looking and sounding better than ever, taking Melfest by storm with the brilliant “Ashes to Ashes“.
And of course we’ve got a night of Eurotastic hits and remixes courtesy of the UK’s leading team of Eurovision DJs – Don Grant, John Hagley and Dave Simmons.
Tickets are £6.50 (+fee) in advance, or £8 on the door.
Hello London, may we have your votes please?
We are once again teaming up with Manchester’s Boom Bang a Bang party for the UK’s biggest Eurovision preview vote on Friday March 22nd at the RVT.
We’ll be playing all the entries for this year’s contest and then YOU decide who should be the winner in Tel Aviv.
And if that wasn’t enough, we’re heading to the Balkans for our live act – we’re really excited to be giving the stage to the fabulous EYE CUE!
The North Macedonian pair – Bojan Trajkovski and Marija Ivanovska – were responsible for the brilliant Lost and Found in Eurovision 2018, and have won countless awards and released three albums over the past decade. They will be performing a set that is full of Eurovision pop bangers!
Plus of course all the Eurovision and Europop hits and remixes from DJ’s Don Grant, John Hagley and Dave Simmons.
For the preview show, doors open at 7pm, and the show kicks off at 7:45pm prompt. Get there early to get a front row spot.
Tickets for the preview show are limited to 150 and only available online, for £6.50. But if you want to save the songs until May and just come along for a night of Eye Cue and Euroclubbing, join us from 10.30pm and it’ll be £8 on the door.
Ding dong! Eurofest is back for 2019 on Friday 11th January!
To celebrate our seventh birthday we’ll have a live appearance from Finland’s fabulous Krista Siegfrids. She has been loved by Eurovision and Schlager fans everywhere since taking to the stage in Malmö in 2013 with the infectious Marry Me. Since then she’s taken part twice in Melodifestivalen and has been a host of Finland’s national final, Uuden Musikiin Kilpailu.
Her live set is full of Eurovision classics – just what London needs on a cold January night.
And as ever we are at the fantastic Royal Vauxhall Tavern and we’ll have six hours of the best hits and remixes courtesy of the UK’s leading team of Eurovision, Europop and Schlager DJs – Don Grant, John Hagley and Dave Simmonds.
Tickets in advance at £6.50, and on the door for £8.
