For Eurovision 2014, Denmark renovated two derelict ship factories. Now, for Junior Eurovision 2014, Malta will renovate three enormous shipping sheds.
Yes, the industrial chic theme from Copenhagen will continue in Valletta, or, more specifically, in Marsa, a port city just ten minutes from the Maltese capital. When architects and welders are done, one shed will house prop storage and dressing rooms; another will house toilets, and merchandise and food stalls; and the third will house up to 4,500 spectators. Eight hundred people will be able to stand in front of the stage.
Junioreurovision.tv highlights the fact that there are plenty of steel supports in the roof, from which will to hang light rigs. Let’s just hope they’re strong enough to withstand the power of Gaia Cauchi’s voice!
