It’s the biggest of all Eurovision pre-parties. And with several months still left to run, Eurovision in Concert organizers have already confirmed the first act. Belgium‘s Hooverphonic will attend the show in Amsterdam next April.

As in previous years, Belgium was the first country to reveal its forthcoming Eurovision act. Back in early October, Flemish broadcaster VRT announced that the well-known band Hooverphonic will represent Belgium in Rotterdam. They were also the first country to reveal in 2018 with Sennek.

Hooverphonic’s confirmation for ESC in Concert continues another trend for Belgium. In 2019 Eliot was revealed as the first confirmed act for the 2019 edition of the Eurovision pre-party.

Hooverphonic haven’t revealed much about their song for Eurovision yet, but they have confirmed it will be performed in English. The group are currently working on their entry and will present it at some point in early 2020.

Everything you need to know about Eurovision in Concert 2020

Taking place on April 4, the show at Amsterdam’s AFAS Live will once again be hosted by Edsilia Rombley and Cornald Maas.

Over the past few years, Mr. Eurovision Cornald Maas has been a staple of the event. Better known as Mr. Eurovision in The Netherlands, he is one of the most important figureheads of the song contest here. For years he’s been the commentator of Eurovision on Dutch TV and he is also part of the selection committee. He’s currently working on a documentary about Duncan Laurence’s Eurovision win.

Edsilia Rombley is also a familiar face for many Eurofans. She represented The Netherlands at the Eurovision Song Contest twice. First in 1998 with “Hemel en aarde” when she finished 4th overall and again in 2007 with “On top of the world” when she finished 21st in the biggest Eurovision semi final to date.

Based on how this duo hosted Eurovision in Concert 2018, we are pretty sure that this edition will be just as amazing! The two presenters have great chemistry, and are always in for a good laugh.

Tickets for Eurovision in Concert 2020 have been available since the 11th of October on the Ticketmaster web site.

Considering they’re such a massive name, it’s surprising.

I think it is more pr related. As you said, Rotterdam is just across the border and I actually think the whole participation is based on the location of the contest, knowing the entire Netherlands will have a higher interest in the contest next year.
Also, I know someone who has run into Alex several times in his hometown and she can confirm he is not very friendly. But I don’t blame him for being annoyed when he just wanted to buy tea ;).
