The preparations inside the B&W Halls have been ongoing for months, but yesterday, a huge banner was hung to the exterior of the halls.
The banner is 1,300 square meters and is hoisted 55 meters high. It had to be split into two for it to be hung more easily on the west side of the ex- shipyard. The banner displays the iconic #JoinUs and the Eurovision logo in particular and it is said that it can be seen from Copenhagen’s center!
Today, another banner measuring 900 square meters will be hung on the south side of the halls. Below you can watch a timelapse of the west banner being hung:
Regarding the interior of the halls, DR is being anti-transparent about the stage construction as absolutely no pictures of the completed structure have been published yet.
The last two days have been fully dedicated to testing the sound, lights and graphics so anything that can go wrong will be covered. The stage has been described as a steel structure with a lots of lights, a large entertainment machine. Below you can watch a video, in Danish, where Jan Lagermand Lundme, the Head of Show, explains what has been going on in the arena. Although he was very careful no big parts of the stage will be revealed, one can still see the general atmosphere in the hall!
The Eurovision Song Contest 2014 will be held on the 6th, 8th and 10th of May.
