Pre Party season is in full swing and it’s time to R.S.V.P.!

On April 24, the annual Moscow Eurovision Pre Party will take place for the ninth time at Vegas City Hall.

Fans will get the chance to meet artists from 11 countries, which is the highest number of participants in the history of the Moscow Pre Party.

Unfortunately, Sergey Lazarev is not able to participate in the Pre Party as he continues his N-Tour and intensifies rehearsals for what promises to be a spectacular performance at Eurovision 2019.

This year includes a number of firsts for the party. In addition to the record-high number of singers, it’s also the first time that contestants from Czech Republic, Croatia, Serbia, Denmark and Austria will come to Russia for the Eurovision Pre Party.

Organisers will also include artists from Junior Eurovision. Special guests include Polina Bogusevich (JESC 2017 winner), Anna Filipchuk (JESC 2018 Russia) and participants of the Russian national selection for this year’s Junior Eurovision.

A day before the official party, on April 23rd, Eurovision contestants will enjoy a Welcome Party and experience Russian hospitality.

The next day, they will have a press conference in Panorama360 – the tallest observation deck in Europe. Before the concert in Vegas City Hall stars will walk the red carpet, along with Russian representatives from the previous years. The venue itself has a capacity for over 1700 people, which also means more visitors than in the previous years.

Hopefully, Armenia won’t join in, as April 24 is the Armenian Genocide commemoration day. If they do, I’ll not for them.

Apart from his solo concert, I think Sergey decides not to join this pre-party so the audience won’t get tired of his song that quickly. He’s maybe saving his magic in the rehearsals like what the article says and in the Eurovision night.

Has it been going on for that long? I was under the impression that last year was the first Moscow pre-party.

Thinking of the line-up, some interesting geo-political strategies there. Ireland, Denmark, Austria from the second SF in Moscow as Russia votes in SF2. Spain and UK from the big 5 want to score some points. A few countries that want to compete for 10 sets of points, 1 to 10. Yet 17 countries in the SF excluding Russia the only one that will not struggle with the televote.

I mean.. they don’t have a host artist but the artists from different countries. That’s bad.

Let’s be honest: Amsterdam, London and Madrid are this year’s hot & happening pre-parties. The Moscow pre-party isn’t doing it for me. And what to think about the Riga pre-party? Only one confirmed participant. 🙁

I do reckon Eastern-Europe should have its own pre-party, but I dunno if Russia should be the one hosting it, considering how Russian politics and lgbt-rights are at this moment. 🙁

Norway and Latvia would be in Riga pre-party, along with some national finalists. But three days away from the party, only two confirmed acts……doesn’t look good.

It looks tragic!!!! If I were a competing artist in Eurovision I would go to Riga in a heartbeat. Thinking that we don’t have Tel Aviv calling this year, why don’t countries go to Riga in bigger numbers?

And can someone explain to me if the invitation is extended to all countries or just a selected few since I believe Riga unlike A’dam for example cannot accommodate a large number of participants.

Rob

Didn’t know that Norway will come (see my source below). But even it they will: it looks like half an hour of fun, and that’s it. 🙁

And YES: many entries should go to Riga, trying to persuade Eastern-Europe! I would <3 that!

[email protected]: I also would like to know how the Riga pre-party is invented, and what it’s all about. Is it just a selected invite, is it lacking appeal, lacking accommodation…?

Una
Guest

Rob, I think that: 1. The organizers extend the invitation, probably countries from the Nordic-Baltic space and a few more. The only contestant from outside I can remember being in Riga is Martina (Czechia 2017), maybe Mikolas too. 2. Countries decide whether to go or not. 3. The organizers provide the venue and logistics, such as taking them from the airport, bringing them to the hotel, facilitate press conferences, interviews, sightseeing, maybe a few meals. 4. I think that the countries are responsible for covering transportation and accommodation. Now if you have just 1 artist there is one thing, 3… Read more »

This is my source for the pre-parties: http://esckaz.com/2019/promotour.htm

Maybe Estonia could be the perfect candidate: a bridge between east and west, while at the same time being the more liberal countries in Eastern-Europe concerning lgbt-rights. Slovenia might also be a choice when concerning the Balkan countries.

Romania too. Much cheaper, lots of air connections and very friendly to foreigners. I hear Bucharest has a thriving culture, very developed music industry, lots of venues for concerts. Why hasn’t anyone thought about that? I’ve seen that Katerine Douska has been there a few weeks ago. Moldova traditionally go to Romania but not this year. I could see at least Greece, Moldova, Hungary, Bulgaria should they get back, maybe Ukraine and France (strong Francophone connection), Israel. But how many pre-parties could the circuit accommodate? The schedule is insane and we don’t have Tel Aviv Calling this year. I don’t… Read more »

But Romania isn’t exactly lgbt-friendly from what I hear from friends over there – I hope that will change. Estonia (northern part of Eastern-Europe) and Slovenia (southern part of Eastern-Europe) are better choices, if lgbt-rights are considered.

Also, Greece, Cyprus and Malta, for example, are considered Southern-Europe, and they have a more ambivalent attitude concerning lgbt-rights – like Estonia and Slovenia in Eastern-Europe.

They are the beacons in the (south)east, and could take on the part of being the more forward-thinking countries in their region(s) IMHO, especially since Turkey (i.e. Istanbul) is turning more anti-lgbt by the minute. 🙁

Rob, I forgot totally about the aftermath of Ester’s victory. My point was that Bucharest is thriving culturally and Romania has a pretty massive music industry and good air travel connections in the region. I was talking about a pre-party event that does not necessarily be an LGBTI event. Music is for everyone. And I bet that there are 10 nice people for 1 homophobe. And despite certain cultural/religious traits I think that Romanians in general are pretty nice people.

I looked up the official website of Riga pre-party, and it says Norway will be there and Riga is “really happy to see them”. Judging from the poster on their website, the event may have some kinds of sponsors in terms of accommodation and transport (I guess “fly bus” is a transport company, Latvians in this thread are welcome to correct me). I am not sure why the Netherlands, Russia, Israel, Spain etc host pre-parties every year, but I do want to see more cities take turn to host something each year, so that some countries with less likelihood to… Read more »

Well truth be told… NORWAY is a great entry for a pre party. Tey are a great trio that can perform many different Eurovision classics together. Also, Tom Hugo has 2 more songs that he could perform that he participated with in previous MGPs. And, Alexandra Roatan could get them to perform “You got me”, after all Fred is a rapper just like Stella Mwangi. They are a very diverse band and could make an intimate concert out of their participation in Riga, even do something together with Carousel. I would love to see that pre-party at least 🙂

Usually when two acts meet, they will sing each other’s song. So let’s have Carousel singing “He lå e loi la Cajet dan cuovgga”

Are you out of your mind? Riga hosted ESC itself.
Why East must have its own pre party, isn’t just one ESC? Are you afraid that East will convince West to vote for them?
Disgusting!

@Pina Colada: I can honestly say: I’ve got no idea what you are talking about. What reckon you disgusting?

All I said, is that it would be a brilliant idea to have several pre-parties on the continent, both in the east and in the west. That’s all. I honestly don’t understand why you felt so attacked.

In 2016 was Barei and Ira Losco and Hovi Star…. i love Moscow pre-party…love it …love it
The artists receive gifts (I guess they don’t want to say to not have to pay taxes).
Moscow is full of old fashion gentlemens .
