Just three days to go!

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!

We’re back with a Bengtzing!

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!
