Excitement is building for the 60th Eurovision Song Contest, and Vienna’s Wiener Stadthalle, which will host the Contest, is getting ready in style…

Following Conchita Wurst’s triumph for Austria at Copenhagen 2014, this year’s Eurovision Song Contest will take place at the Wiener Stadthalle, with two semi-finals on 19 and 21 May leading to the Grand Final on Saturday 23 May.

The venue preparations have been kicking off, the stage construction has begun and the staff will be looking the part, too, with brand new uniforms! Over 500 employees will wear the dark blue coloured uniforms, designed by Hetzendorf Fashion School student Paulina Richter.

The side panels of the uniforms are intended to mirror the Wiener Stadthalle’s striking roof (a roof which was designed by Roland Rainer over 50 years ago), and there is a reflective light strip from the zip to the back of the uniform jackets, making staff clearly visible in the dark. The uniform is also complemented with soft cloth, for a more formal touch.

Wiener Stadthalle’s CEO Wolfgang Fischer explains that the new uniforms were an idea that originated before Conchita Wurst’s Eurovision victory last year. However, the Contest marks an opportunity to express the fresh identity of the venue.
