Shortly after Emmelie’s victory in the Malmö arena the dismantling work has begun in the Malmö arena. One chapter is closed, another chapter is opened. In the following winner’s press conference Jan Ola San – the Excecutive Supervisor of the ESC – has handed over the official welcome kid for the 2014 broadcaster DR.
Outside the arena it was already visible that Denmark was sure to win the ESC, as there was a truck with a big “See you all at the Eurovision Song Contest Denmark 2014, 14 km ->”. A funny idea!
The first announcement for the upcoming ESC 2014 was the name of the Executive Producer: Pernille Gaardbo, who has been working for 17 years for the Danish broadcaster DR. The first meetings will take place in Geneva in June.
By now it’s not 100% clear if Copenhagen or Herning (Jutland), or even another city which will be the host city next year. We will keep you updated. One thing is clear, the EBU is happy that it will be Denmark next year, as it’s a wealthy country with a good infrastructure to host such a mega event. Places like Azerbaijan or Ukraine are a bit more difficult in realizing the ESC, but the history has showed us that everything is possible.
