Last night the official opening party of the 53rd Eurovision Song Contest took place in the impressive premises of Palata Serbia. Almost all artists, journalists and fans joined this very special party. This is the perfect spot to meet and greet. Hundreds of people from all over Europe and beyond enjoyed this fascinating place to exchange their opinions and experiences in the Eurovision Song Contest. This event also shows that Europe is getting closer every year through a music show watched by more than 500 million spectators from all over Europe and the World. Furthermore the Eurovision Song Contest is a message of peace, tolerance and understanding which is far more than just a music show.

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.
