It has been just under a week since Conchita Wurst was crowned the winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen. But shortly after the grand final took place, the 2014 Eurovision stage needed to be dismantled.
According to Jan Lagermand, the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest Head of Show, the arena took more than three months to build, but only a small day to tinker down. From Saturday night to Sunday afternoon, it only took a mere 17 hours to dismantle the 2014 Eurovison stage.
We are very proud of the work we have delivered, and as a department we are tremendously honoured to have been part of the big package. We are ready to do it again. – Jan Lagermand.
On the 3 February 2014, work on the Eurovision arena began at the B&W Hallerne. Talking about the work in the arena, Jan Lagermand revealed the task was as such not much more complex than things they had tried before, however some challenges arose when the interaction of water, fire, light and wood was introduced.
