Meet me in Riga: Eurovision Pre-Party 2017 is back March 25

Get your passport ready, book your flights and get ready for some Baltic realness because the Eurovision Pre-Party Riga 2017 is on! Once again, Eurovision hopefuls will turn up and turn out in Latvia’s capital city to kick off the 2017 Eurovision promo tour. The all-important date is Saturday, March 25.

The Crystall Club Concert Hall will get glamorous, glittery and colorful while channeling some Ukrainian culture heritage, making it an unforgettable start on the road to Kyiv.

As usual, Eurovision 2017 acts will stop by, perform and promote their entries and meet with press — often for the first time.

The party will kick off at 20:00 but doors will open one hour earlier if you wanna rub shoulders with other Eurovision fans or just breathe in and feel the excitement. Ticket prices range from €19 to €290 — if you want to get up close and personal with the stars — and you can buy them here.

“I’m glad to invite all Eurovision fans to join us in Riga for a great PreParty!” says Miroslavs Kodis, OGAE Latvia president. “Riga is the first place where Eurovision musicians meet and it’s always a good start for their journey.”

Last year, we brought you candid and crazy interviews with Ira Losco way before knowing she was expecting her child. Barei tried to teach wiwiblogger Padraig her fancy dance moves, but failed miserably. Juri Pootsman was all over the Baltic Boys hype and Poli Genova was kind and generous as usual.

What is in it for us this year? We don’t have to wait that long. The date is set and we are ready to slay — the Baltic way. Are you joining OGAE Latvia for the start of the promo tour? Tell us below!
