Eurovision 2015: Preliminary dates and speculation

by Peter Russell 4,445 views

After the Austrian win last night in Copenhagen, the Austrian delegation shared some preliminary details on their plans for the 60th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015.

The preliminary dates for the competition had been announced previously, setting the contest for 12, 14, and 16 May, 2015. What couldn’t be decided at the time, however, was where the 60th anniversary of the show will be held. After Conchita Wurst’s win last night, the Austrian delegation talked about the possibilities of either Vienna or Salzburg as host cities, with the infrastructure in place to support the event.

Conchita herself called for a glamorous show, and tipped her name into the ring for hosting the event when Europe descends on Austria next year.

While all the information discussed has not yet been finalized, one thing is for sure: Austria is ready and willing to rise like a pheonix, and put on an incredible show for Europe and the rest of the world. Since their debut in 1957, the country has only managed to win one time, in 1966, with Udo Jürgens’s entry Merci, chérie, and have failed to qualify for the final for the past years, even taking a break from participation from 2008 – 2010.

As always, when the contest opens in Austria, will be on the ground to bring you the latest, and stay with us throughout the next year for updates on the Eurovision Song Contest.
