It means that more people have the chance to experience the shows on location in Globen and there are so many possibilities – one can go with the children for an afternoon rehearsal and watch the Swedish entry rehearsing on stage or to experience the live broadcast of the final”, says Martin Österdahl, the executive producer of the Eurovision Song Contest 2016.
