The first day for the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 entrants has arrived. Get the information of what will happen throughout the day in your agenda below.

The 60th Eurovision Song Contest is getting closer. After Conchita Wurst’s victory for Austria last year, the event will be celebrated in the country’s capital, Vienna.

Before the Eurovision week starts and the show goes live on television, the artists and the host broadcaster, the Austrian ORF, must set everything ready so that you can enjoy the Contest to a level that surpasses perfection. That is why 8 days before the first semifinal the rehearsals will begin on the stage of the Wiener Stadthalle.

The first eight countries will have their rehearsals and a meet and greet session with the press, Monday 11 May 2015. Here you can see the complete agenda:
