A record breaking 26 participants for tonight’s Eurovision In Concert 2016

None less than 26 of the 2016 Eurovision participants will perform at the preview party in Amsterdam tonight. Eurovision In Concert is the biggest preview party, and as such we can expect a long, but great evening from the Netherlands.

More preview concerts than ever before are taking place, but Eurovision In Concert remains the largest, and this year they even broke the record with a total of 26 of this year’s 43 participants ready to test their entry in front of an international fan base tonight.

Two preview parties were held last week. Saturday, 10 acts performed in Latvia and 12 took the stage in Moscow Sunday evening. Tonight, 26 go on stage in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

These 26 acts are the participants from Albania, Austria, Belarus, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Estonia, France, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, FYR Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Ukraine and United Kingdom.
