60th Anniversary Events

Two key events marking the 60th Anniversary of the Eurovision Song Contest were held in London in the run-up to the event itself in Vienna.

A selection of well-known Eurovision Song Contest artists performed in front of an audience of fans at the Eventim Apollo Hammersmith on the 31st of March. The event entitled Eurovision Song Contest’s Greatest Hits was a co-production between the BBC and more than 20 other EBU Members and features winners including Sweden’s Herreys and Austria’s 2014 champion Conchita Wurst.

Conference

On the 24th of April the Eurovision Song Contest: 60th Anniversary Conference took place at BAFTA 195 Piccadilly. This EBU event explored the impact the Song Contest has had on the European public sphere over the last six decades.

Academics, who have studied the power of the Song Contest, together with commentators and past performers examined how the Eurovision Song Contest has been used as a platform of expression for diverse communities, to create national and European identities and as a tool for nation branding.

Press accreditation

Eurovision Song Contest's Greatest Hits

Media accreditation for the Eurovision Song Contest's Greatest Hits event was managed by the BBC. Due to space restrictions and the limited availability of media facilities, only a small number of press was accredited.

Priority was given to co-producing EBU Member Broadcasters and media agencies.
