Strøget is a popular pedestrian shopping street in Copenhagen that lies on the so-called Eurovision Fan Mile. Event manager Ulrik Ammundsen explains how the tourist attraction will be transformed for Eurovision in 7 ways.
- The Fan Mile will have three different themes: Children & young people, Sustainable green solutions and Lifestyle & tolerance.
- Under the latter theme, will fall celebrations held by the LGBT community.
- Gammeltov and Nytorv will become the center of the fan mile through the Eurovision Village where the stage will offer music and entertainment round the clock. The three shows will also be displayed on large screens in the area.
- There will be food stalls to show off the Danish culinary culture as well as city bikes to show the green side of Copenhagen. There are plans to make a water bar, too.
- Copenhagen has asked a number of cities to contribute to the fan mile. These are: Malmö, Hamburg, Sydney, Beijing, Aalborg, Aarhus and Odense.
- In Strøget, during the Eurovision week, couples will be able to get married on the spot!
- Plans are to organise all the parties in the fan mile and tone down the atmosphere around the B&W Halls.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2014 will be held on the 6th, 8th and 10th of May in B&W Halls in Copenhagen, Denmark.
