During the EBU press conference there were also some plans revealed which concerns the 60th anniversary of the Eurovision Song Contest next year. There has been a special celebration show in 2005 of the 50th anniversary in Copenhagen.
The German broadcaster NDR is probably thinking of hosting this special even in Berlin 2015, but nothing is confirmed yet, there might be also other opportunities from other broadcasters.
This special show will not replace the regular ESC; this will be an additional show. It also depends on which country is going to win this year to build a thematic bridge.
Connected with the anniversary the EBU is also planning a digital archive where all the past ESC’s will be available to watch in high quality.

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!
