Eurovision Song Contest Viewing Party
Every year, millions of people from all around the globe tune in to watch one of the longest-running television show in the world: the European Song Contest.
Since 1956, member countries of the European Broadcasting Union have sent their candidates to compete for the best performance. Each participating country submits an original song to be performed on live television and radio and then casts votes for the other countries' songs to determine the most popular song in the competition.
Winning the European Song Contest has launched a number of international careers: most notably that of the Swedish pop-quartet ABBA (winner in 1974 for Waterloo). Other successful ESC veterans include Celine Dion (1988), Olivia Newton-John and Germanys own Nicole (winner in 1982 for "Ein bisschen Frieden").
This year, the European Song Contest takes place in Stockholm, Sweden, following Sweden's victory at the 2015 contest. 26 countries will participate in the final, including Sweden, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
DANK Haus is opening its doors for a viewing party and we will stream the contest live from Stockholm. Come and cheer for your favorite country and song!
Admission is free. Food and beverages are available for purchase.
