For all of you who booked hotels for Vienna, Innsbruck and Graz for May 12, 14 and 16, it’s time to call the front desk. ORF has finally confirmed the official dates for Eurovision 2015, and they have pushed everything back a week. That means the grand final will take place on May 23 of next year.
As we reported earlier today, the director general of ORF previously revealed that these were the preferred dates. Eurovision.tv reports that the EBU decided to approve the proposed dates immediately, stating that they wanted to avoid confusion and that “it also suits the EBU very well for technical reasons.” Maybe Jan Ola Sand had a holiday planned for the week before?
In any event, we’re all still on egg shells waiting to learn whether we’ll be in Vienna, Innsbruck or Graz. We’ll find out by early August.
Have you already booked your hotel rooms?
