Eurovision Preparty Riga 2018: Moldova’s DoReDoS and Czech Republic’s Mikolas Josef among the first confirmed acts


The Baltics’ biggest Eurovision bash is returning for a fifth year. On  24 March stars from both this year’s contest and previous editions will jet into Latvia for the Eurovision PreParty Riga 2018.

Since Thursday, organisers OGAE Latvia have been busy unveiling the acts. So far, we’ve gotten four names and the line-up is already looking great.

Two acts have been confirmed from the upcoming contest in Lisbon.

After making their first appearance at last year’s preparty, the Czech Republic is returning. He’s already performed for Ukrainian TV viewers, and now Mikolas Josef will bring “Lie To Me” to Eurofans from Latvia and beyond.

Moldova will also make the trip to the Latvian capital for the first time since 2015. DoReDoS will get the dance floor bopping with their Philipp Kirkorov penned number “My Lucky Day”.

Roberto Meloni is on hosting duties once more. He twice represented Latvia at Eurovision, as part of in 2007 and with Pirates of the Sea in 2008.

Another blast from the past will come courtesy of Malta’s Amber. She represented the island back in 2015. She’s set to sing her Eurovision track “Warrior” along with some other singles from her back catalogue.

More acts are set to be confirmed over the coming days.
