With the first set of Eurovision rehearsals kicking off tomorrow, the Wiener Stadthalle stage is all set and prepared for the coming weeks!

Following the completion of the Eurovision stage back in April, the final touches and preparations were made today in the host venue of the Wiener Stadthalle. Check out some of the newly released images below!

The team behind the stage is made up of artists Florian Wieder, Matthias Kublik, Al Gurdon and Kurt Pongratz. A total of 1,270 LED pillars span the 2015 Eurovision stage to form the Heptic Eye shape. The LED background measures at a width of 30 meters by a height of 9 meters. Footage of the Eurovision stage in action was released last month.

Tomorrow comes the start of the 2015 Eurovision rehearsals, where the first set of competing artists and delegations will arrive at the arena to perform on the stage for the very first time. Each competing act will rehearse on the stage where they will be able to work on the necessary changes before their live performances in the coming weeks.

The 2015 Eurovision Song Contest takes place on the 19, 21 and 23 May where the 40 participating countries will be competing for the Eurovision victory.

Stay tuned to where we will be bringing you the latest news from the Wiener Stadthalle about the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest!
