One of the success stories of last year’s Eurovision Song Contest, the Euro Fan Café makes a welcome return this year, bigger and better than ever. Tickets went on sale at the beginning of the month, generating an overwhelming response. With a packed programme, it’s easy to see why tickets have been selling faster than hot cakes.
Euro Fan Café was a project that started off last year but which turned into such a success story with manager Rick Jacobs at the helm that DR wished to recreate the same in Copenhagen this year. Once again, Rick has been drafted in to help manage the project and things are shaping up to be even bigger and better than last year.
Fun and festivities are due to kick off on the 28th of April with the opening of the Euro Fan Café, and tickets for the event went on sale just over two weeks ago, on the 1st of April. The venue, Huset-KBH does however have a maximum capacity, so sale of the tickets is on a strictly first come, first served basis. It would seem that a vast number of fans have wanted to secure themselves a piece of the Eurovision action, with sales so far surpassing double the amount the management team had initially envisaged. Tickets are still available, but are disappearing fast. They are still available for advance purchase online, giving a handsome discount at the same time. The following ticket categories are available for purchase:
200 DKK (26 €) / 250 DKK at the door
Can be bought here: http://huset.billetto.dk/eurofancafe_ogae_partout
Available to you if you have one of the following:
– OGAE or INFE Membership for 2014 (previous years do not qualify)
– EBU accreditation – a pass for either Press or Fan accreditation
300 DKK (40 €) / same price at the door
Can be bought here: http://huset.billetto.dk/eurofancafe_partout_regular
Available to the general public without accreditation or fan club membership.
In addition to the online discount available, the tickets also provide owners with some of the lowest beer prices in the centre of Copenhagen. With good, hearty food available to ticket owners at the venue for under 100 DKK (comparably lower than other eating options in the area and let’s face it, being a full time Eurovision fan gives you quite the appetite) then the tickets for Euro Fan Café offer all fans unbeatable value.
All are welcome to partake in the festivites and happenings going on at Huset-KBH; for the full programme, see our previous Euro Fan Café article. Once you have purchased the ticket, this entitles you to free entry to all events – yes, you read it correctly – there are no hidden extra charges for the entire 13 days’ duration. If however you are only able to visit for the day, special day passes are available for the bargain price of 100 DKK. These tickets aren’t available onine, but can be bought at the door once the venue opens and are subject to capacity on each given day.
So, if the idea of belting out your Eurovision favourites on karaoke, being in with a shot at winning the Eurovision quiz, catching one of the numerous Eurovision themed films and documentaries that are to be shown or if you simply want to dance the evening away to top Eurovision tunes then Euro Fan Café is the place for you. Secure yourself a ticket now while stocks last. Online sale of tickets closes on the 27th of April. Stay tuned for more details surrounding the goings on at the Euro Fan Café – an overview of chat show guests is due to be released within the next few days, providing you with yet another reason as to why Huset-KBH will be Eurovision nirvana.
