Time is running - in about three weeks time the offical Eurovision is going to begin. The city of Kiev has many ideas to make a trip to Kiev unforgettable for the masses of visitors, which are expected at Eurovision time. The tickets are already sold out for both the semifinal and final. There are also more than 1500 journalists from all over the world expected during the week of Eurovision. The problem is the accomodation. Where shall they all stay? The prices for hotels have risen up to 70-100% - it looks a bit like usury. The friends of Eurovision have to pay a high price this year! Due to our information there is a tent-village plant on an island on Dnjepr river, where up to 4000 people can be accomodated. A modern tent-village with LCD-screens where people can follow the rehearsals live from the Sport Palace as well as a shuttlebus-service. If you take a look on the weather map, it still looks quite frosty: 3 degrees at the moment! It seems to be a real wintercamp! It's going to be quite interesting if the organisers will be able to be finished until May 11th. That's the big question!

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
