Möt mig i Gamla Stan! Broadcaster SVT has today officially announced that the EuroClub for Eurovision 2016 will rest inside a specially built venue in front of the Royal Palace. This will be where Team Wiwi and other members of the press and delegations meet up, have a drink and enjoy themselves after a busy day of rehearsals. The not-too-distant Eurovision Village, the official fan zone of the Eurovision Song Contest, will rest in the Royal Gardens. Call it a party in bloom!
Eurovision Song Contest 2016 producer Christer Björkman is thrilled with the venues:
“The choice of the Stockholm City Hall for the opening ceremony and the Royal Garden for the Eurovision Village feels just right, but what really stands out is the unique location of the EuroClub, at one of Stockholm’s most beautiful places, at the waterfront in front of the Royal Palace. There will be magic.”
