With pandemic restrictions still in place, fans aren’t seeing the usual live events on the pre-party calendar. But there’s plenty of action online. This year Hrvatski Eurovizijski Klub (the Croatian Eurovision Club) has organised the first-ever Adriatic PreParty. It will feature performances from 15 of this year’s competing acts.
The live-streamed event will take place this Saturday, 1 May. It will begin broadcasting at 21:00 CET and will be streamed on Hrvatski Eurovizijski Klub’s YouTube channel.

Eurovision 2021 pre-parties
Restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic have meant that the usual Eurovision pre-party calendar is looking very different this year. Big live events such as the London Eurovision Party and Eurovision In Concert have been indefinitely postponed.
However, for the second year in a row, Spain’s PrePartyES has continued in a virtual format. Last Saturday 30 of the 39 competing acts gave “at home” performances of their Eurovision entries.
The Wiwi Jam at Home is also back for 2021. The concert will take place on the wiwibloggs YouTube channel the evening of Wednesday May 19 — in between the Eurovision semi-finals. The good and the great of the song contest will be celebrating their fans and each other. There are lots of surprises to be announced. See y’all there!
