After wow-ing the whole Eurovision fan base with their arena choice, Copenhagen is now in full force to show everyone they are not joking this year, as shuttle boats and extended bus routes are put in disposition of Eurofans who will watch the contest live.
If you, like the rest of the people who watch Eurovision yearly were wondering what was Denmark thinking when they chose B&W-Hallerne as the hosting arena, well, Copenhagen is now proving why they will make this edition of Eurovision most the most special ever and most remarkable ever. Up until and after the dress rehearsals, Semi-Finals and Grand Final at the B&W-Hallerne on Refshaleøen, a shuttle service of harbour buses will be provided for the accredited media and guests and will be in full force. This information comes from host city Event Manager from Wonderful Copenhagen, Ulrik Ammundsen:
“A great thing about this city is that you can travel around on the water. So after experiencing everything the so-called fan-mile has to offer, you can go down to Nyhavn and sail over to Refshaleøen”
In addition to the waterbound harbour buses, another possibility on the drawing board is to extend bus route 9A all the way out to B&W-Hallerne.
“It usually terminates at the Opera House, which is relatively close by. So we are thinking about extending it so that it serves Refshaleøen in connection with the Eurovision Song Contest”- Torben Rasmussen went on to say.
How do you think the show is coming together? Do you think Copenhagen has got it all covered this year?
The 2014 Eurovision Song Contest will take place on the 6, 8 and 10 of May at the B&W-Hallerne on Refshaleøen in Copenhagen, Denmark.
