Yesterday, the organisation team of the four Dutch preselections of the Nationaal Songfestival 2003 told esctoday.com that there won't be any audience during the programmes. Today it appeared that the audience will consist of people related to the performing artists, invited people and press.
The Dutch Nationaal Songfestival 2003 will be produced by one of the Dutch public broadcasters, the NOS. The same broadcaster is also responsible for broadcasting the Eurovision Song Contest. The four preselection programmes will be produced by broadcaster TROS.
The Dutch preselections will take place at February 1, 8, 15 and 22 all containing eight songs. The final of the Nationaal Songfestival 2003 will take place in the Ahoy venue in Rotterdam, where an audience of 6,000 people will be present.
