After our summer break, Eurofest is back for the autumn! And who better to get the party started again than one of the biggest Eurovision fan favourites of recent years, Poli Genova!
The Bulgarian diva has represented her country on two occasions. Firstly with “Na Inat” back in 2011, which was cruelly robbed of a place in the final. And then with the poptastic “If Love Was A Crime” in 2016 in Stockholm which finished a fantastic fourth in the final, Bulgaria’s best ever result at the time. Her hit charted in 26 countries and has streamed over three MILLION times.
As well as a live appearance from Poli we will of course be playing the best in Eurovision, Europop and Schlager hits and remixes from our ever-wonderful team of DJs: John Hagley, Don Grant and Dave Simmons.
Tickets on sale now for £8 (plus booking fee) in advance, or £10 on the door if their are still tickets available.
It’s just over a month since the Eurovision 2015 final in Vienna, and the Eurofest team have just about recovered from partying (and the rather wet weather)! For those of you suffering from PED – post-Eurovision depression – fear not because we’ve got some exciting news.
We will be back for our regular club night at the RVT in London on Friday 24 July, and we’ve got a very special guest for you. Flying in from the holiday island of Malta is someone who’s participated in Eurovision not once, not twice, but three times – the amazing Chiara!
Chiara is officially one of the most successful Eurovision participants ever, and by far Malta’s most successful Eurovision performer. She came third in 1998 with “The One That I Love”, only narrowing losing out to the winner, Dana International, on the very last vote (I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to forgive Macedonia for failing to give Chiara any points when announcing the final set of scores). In 2005 Chiara scored Malta’s best-ever Eurovision performance with “Angel” finishing second. She gave it one more go in 2009 with “What If We”, but sadly she wasn’t able to make it third time lucky.
And if Chiara’s performance wasn’t enough to get you along, of course we’ll also have six hours of non-stop Eurovision and schlager anthems from our very own Heroes (see what we did there :-p), our team of DJs Don Grant, John Hagley and Dave Simmons. All this for the bargain price of £5 before 10.30pm and £8 afterwards. No need for tickets in advance, just pay on the door.
And if you can’t quite wait that long before your next Eurovision fix then get yourself along to Bristol Pride on Saturday 11 July where Eurofest is at the Official Pride After Party at the O2 academy. As well as our DJs playing all the Euro-tastic hits there will be live performances from the wonderful Nicki French and Euroband’s Fridrik! Plus they’ve got some fab Eurovision stars performing on the Main Stage during the day (Nicki French; Cheryl, Mike and Jay Formerly of Bucks Fizz; and Ryan Dolan). Get your tickets now!
On Friday 10 April we are once again teaming up with Manchester’s ever-popular Boom-Bang-A-Bang Party for the country’s biggest Eurovision 2015 preview vote!
We will be playing the videos of all 40 entries in this year’s Contest, and then it’s down to YOU to decide who should be the winner in Vienna! By the end of today we will know all the songs that are taking part in this year’s concert, and our preview show is a great way to help you decide who is going to be your favourite this year.
With a number of countries returning to the fold for the contest’s historic 60th edition, plus the debut of that well known European country of Australia, it’s anybody’s guess who will get the votes of UK fans.
If you want to save the songs until May and are just in the mood for a dance, we’ll have four hours of Eurovision and Europop from 11pm from the Eurofest DJs Don Grant, John Hagley and the UK’s leading Eurovision DJ Dave Simmons. As ever you can expect plenty of hits from this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Eurovisions past and some classic Europop.
For the preview show, doors open from 7pm, and the show kicks off at 8pm prompt. Get there early to get a front row seat! The preview show will be by ticket in advance (£6 plus 60p booking fee), and only available on the door if there are any tickets left. After 11pm you can pay on the door as normal (£8).
Last year we sold out – so book now to avoid disappointment!
The next Eurofest is just three days away!
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone on Friday evening for another fantastic night of Eurovision, Europop and schlager hits. And of course, a live performance by the amazing Linda Bengtzing!
Linda will be flying in to London especially to perform for us, and we’re looking forward to hearing all her Melodifestivalen songs – and perhaps a couple of others too.
As usual doors open at 9.00pm, and Linda will be on stage at 12midnight. If you arrive before 10.30pm you’ll get in for the bargain price of £5, with standard admission £8 – great value for seeing a schlager superstar live!
On Facebook we asked you which of Linda’s MF songs you liked best and “Jag ljuger så bra” came out top, so here’s a video of that to get you in the mood for Eurofest. See you all on Friday!
Fresh from hosting Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst, and doing a packed out night in the lead-up to the contest in Copenhagen, Eurofest is back for the summer.
And we’ve got a Schlager superstar for you!
We’re really excited to announce that our live act for summer Eurofest will be none other than the amazing Linda Bengtzing!
Linda is a massive Eurovision fan favourite, and her UK fans have been waiting for years to see her perform live. She has taken part in Melodifestivalen five times, reaching the final on four occasions, as well as having several top 10 hits in Sweden. Her songs including Alla Flickor and Jag Ljuger Så Bra are always sure to fill the Eurofest dancefloor.
Once again we’ll be flying the flag for Europop all night long with six hours of Euro-tastic music, provided by our DJs Don Grant, John Hagley, and the UK’s leading Eurovision DJ Dave Simmons.
It all takes place as ever at London’s Royal Vauxhall Tavern, from 9pm on Friday 8 August.
Tickets are on the door only – £5 before 10.30pm, £8 afterwards.
Get ready for another night of Euphoria!
It’s only a matter of days now until our main event of the summer. We’re really excited that Hera Björk will be performing live for us on Friday 19 July. Doors will open at 9.00pm as usual, and if you bring a flyer (or print one from here) and arrive before 11pm we will let you in for just £5 – an absolute bargain! Even if you don’t have a flyer the admission price is just £8 – and considering you get six hours of Euro-tastic music as well as a live performance by a Eurovision star that’s still an amazing price.
We’re expecting people from all over Europe to join us at the RVT for the event, and we’ve already been getting publicity from the Icelandic Embassy in the UK and Icelandic Music’s international website.
There’s already more than 150 people signed up for the event on Facebook so we think it’s going to be another busy event so make sure you get to the RVT early enough to get in!
It’s the perfect way to round off Pride Saturday with our usual six hours of non-stop Euro-tastic music from our DJs Dave Simmons, Don Grant and John Hagley. As ever you can expect plenty of hits from this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, great songs from Eurovisions past and some classic Europop.
Plus it’s the perfect opportunity to pick up discount flyers for our big Eurofest Live later this summer with Hera Björk!
Admission is a price-crunching £3 before 11pm and £4 after 11pm, and as usual we’ll be open from 9pm through to 3am. You can let us know you’re coming by signing up to our Facebook event page.
So take Pride in the music you love and join us for another fantastic Eurofest!
