COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – In less than three months the B&W Hallerne will be hosting the Eurovision Song Contest and now the stage is taking shape in the historic shipyard on Eurovision Island.

In these days the back wall for the stage is being transported from a workshop on Refshaleøen and into the halls. The back wall is made of a skeleton of boxes of aluminum and iron and this is the first step of making the stage. The next thing the production team will do is the lightning and sound.

It is the technical project manager at DR Søren Andresen who is head of the stage building he has previously had the technical responsibility for shows as Dansk Melodi Grand Prix and the X Factor finals.

During March DR will move into the arena and build the stage and the audience platforms for 10.000 people.
