This autumn, Germany will be the place of two Eurovision fan meetings, both featuring recent Eurovision stars. Whilst Karmen Stavec, Nicola and Lou starring the convention of the German branch of the international Eurovision fan club OGAE in Berlin, the Eurovision Club Germany (ECG) brings F.L.Y.and Isgaard (German national final) to Cologne. Both fan conventions will also feature record fairs, karaoke programs, quizzes and Eurovision partys. As always, Eurovision fans from all over Europe are warmly welcomed to the events.

The OGAE fan meeting will take place at the famous SO36 club in Berlin-Kreuzberg on Saturday, 4th of October. Following a Eurovision afternoon with a record fair, a karoke contest � OGAE�s search for the superstar � quizzes for regular and hardcore Eurovison fans and a surprise guest, the evening program will feature performances of several participants of this year�s Eurovision Song Contest: Berlin-born Karmen Stavec (Slovenia), Nicola (Romania), Tinka Milinovic (Bosnian final) and finally Germany�s participant Lou will give their best to get everybody happy and gay. A long Eurovision DanceNight with a local DJ rounds up the night. As the day before the OGAE meeting happens to be a public holiday (Reunion Day), it is a perfect occasion for a prolonged weekend trip to Germany�s capital.

The Essigfabrik in Cologne will be the place of the annual Eurovision Club Germany (ECG) meeting certain weeks later, on Saturday, 29th of November, with guest stars Isgaard (German final) and Latvian trio F.L.Y. Beforehand, a record fair, karaoke contests and quizzes, all presented by charming and funny host Heppi will entertain the fans. Again, surprise shows are to be expected, although it will be quite a task for ECG�s organizers to top last year�s spectacular Eurovision musical “Dinle”� A Eurovision dance party will finish the evening.

Tickets for both events are already on sale, prices are 35 � for Berlin and 37 � for Cologne. Members of OGAE Germany or ECG only pay 25 � respectively 32 � for the events.
