Eurovision with an audience still an option

“The Eurovision Song Contest will take place in the second half of May, with at least three TV shows and possibly adapted activities in the city of Rotterdam”, a spokesman of the organisation said today to news agency ANP. “The Eurovision song contest is a valuable opportunity for the event industry to gain even more insight into how to safely organize events in the coming months,” the spokesman continues, “That is also in line with the National Event Plan, in which Eurovision is an intermediate step on that route.”

The announcement is made at the day that the Dutch will probably be told that the current, strict, lockdown will not be relaxed. The number of positive COVID19 tests is increasing. More about the lockdown will be made public tonight in a press conference by Prime Minister Rutte and Minister of Health De Jonge.

Recently, the organization Fieldlab Evenementen did several tests with coronaproof events to see what is possible and what is not. Last weekend, a test with a festival in Biddinghuizen (where the annual pop festival of Lowlands is held) took place. It had 1500 visitors. Visitors could only enter the festival site with a negative COVID19 test.

In the upcoming weeks, the organizers of the Eurovision Song Contest hope to be able to make a decision about audience in the contest.
