Euroclub bigger than ever
When Eurovision was held in Malmö in 2013, the Euroclub was open to 1500 accredited fans, including press. This year, that number will be doubled to 3000 fans, including the press accredited and delegations. All the fans who are member of one of the official OGAE fan clubs will have access, according to Swedish broadcaster SVT.
»There will be people from all over the world to be a part of this event. Therefore it is amazing that the city of Stockholm as the first host city invites all OGAE fans to solve the accreditation to Euroclub, the official party venue for artists, delegations and media«, says Swedish Head of Delegation, Christer Björkman.
Euroclub will have three additional bars and a large stage where the participating artists will perform.
