ESC 2014: GREEN ROOM CHANGES SEATING PLAN
Morten Kaiser (Denmark)
COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – This years Green Room for the participating artists in B&W Hallerne will be located as an island in an enormous human sea when the Eurovision Song Contest in May will take place on Eurovision Island in Copenhagen.
The Green Room is going to have a greater importance than it has ever had. DR will spend several minutes in the green room, where the participants are and where the competition is greatest, head of show Jan Lagermand Lundme says to dr.dk/grandprix.
The audience and the artists must have an experience of being close to everything and DR wants the Green Room to be a central part of the shows, so it is a natural thing to move it closer to the show and into the hall. Jan Lagermand Lundme hopes, that it can create a great atmosphere in the hall and the viewers all across Europe will also get to feel the excitement and celebration in the B&W Hallerne.
DR has a tradition of placing the Green Room in the hall at Dansk Melodi Grand Prix and now they will do the same at Eurovision. The decision to move the Green Room means that it has been necessary to change some of the audience seating and those who already bought tickets to the show in November will receive new tickets automatically and DR assure that the new tickets are in the same category and the same placing as the original ticket.
