Mark your calendars: The London Eurovision Party is back for another year — the date has officially been set for March 29th, 2020. The pre-party, which has now been going for more than a decade, will once again take place inside the beautiful Café de Paris in Leicester Square.

As ever, the concert is a major opportunity for fans and artists alike. It gives delegations a chance to test their artists in front of an audience of enthusiastic Eurovision fans. In some cases it will be the very first time an artist performs the song live. The performances can help singers get the nerves out of their system ahead of the actual song contest. As ever the bookies will be watching — and adjusting their odds.

Beyond the actual performances, artists also have the chance to clarify the messages behind their songs and introduce themselves to the Eurovision press. It can really help set the tone — and their PR strategy — for the months that follow.

That will be all the more true this year. The London Eurovision Party will take place before the other major preview events: Israel Calling in Tel Aviv, Eurovision in Concert in Amsterdam, and the Eurovision Spain PreParty in Madrid.
