Unfortunately, the team of eurovisionlive.com will not be in Moscow this year. We have decided to make a break due to several reasons. eurovisionlive.com has always been a non profit website and does not make any money. Due to this fact we are unable to finance the costs for covering two weeks in one of the most expensive cities in the world regarding hotel prices. Furthermore, we won’t risk living far out of the city to prevent costs, as there is a high rate of criminality also for journalists. We will not support this. Of course we are unhappy not being there, but taking all these issues into consideration we came to this result. Next year we will back as usual.
Chief Editor of eurovisionlive.com
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.
