The first of May is an official bank holiday in many countries. Therefore the rehearsals of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest were paused. With this opportunity a lot of delegations and journalist utilized the day off and explored the city of Copenhagen or booked tours to other places around.
Due to the fact that the schedules of the rehearsals are normally quite packed with many appointments, interviews, gigs and official programs, a day off is a truly present to all of the participants.
The celebrations of the “day of work” has not been a real bank holiday in Copenhagen, a lot of shops were open and the normal rush hour in the morning and evening did not look like a free day for the Danes. In Copenhagen, mainly unions are present on the streets and held their parades.

About me: As one of the founders of eurovisionlive.com I am responsible for the interviews with the singers and the editorial content. My passion for the Eurovision Song Contest exists since my early childhood. The exotic music, different cultures and languages have given a lot of inspiration to me. Since my very first ESC in Dublin 1994 I particularly appreciate the get together and friendship of all the nationalities and Riverdance was a thrill!
