Eurovision the Party with Sanna Nielsen

Sanna Nielsen will be the host. Carola, Loreen, Danny Saucedo and Panetoz will be on stage. A gigantic 300 square metre tv and unique backstage material from the Globe Arena. That’s what “Eurovision the Party” in Tele2 Arena will be during the Grand Final night Saturday May 14.

- Eurovision the Party is an opportunity for more people to be a part of the Eurovision event as the tickets for the Globe Arena practically are sold out. In the Eurovision Village a public viewing is offered, in the EuroClub festivities for persons with accreditation is organized. Eurovision the Party is a complement to all these events and a welcome event that we hope can become a tradition, Johan Bernhagen, Executive Producer for Eurovision Song Contest 2016 says.

Host for the night is Sanna Nielsen – with the pre-party, the live broadcast and the after-party. During the live broadcast Sanna will take the party audience backstage in the Globe Arena for exclusive interviews and she has also promised to appear with the broadcast hosts, Måns Zelmerlöw and Petra Mede.

- It will be a totally new Eurovision experience with all the extras. Together we will be able to follow the artists, the party and to dance the whole night long. During the broadcast the audience in Tele2 can follow me backstage for a lot of fun interviews and a unique insight in what’s happening behind the scene, Sanna Nielsen says.

Moreover, the Swedish jury's votes will be given live from Eurovision the Party in the live broadcast.

Booked artist are Carola, Danny Saucedo, Loreen, Panetoz and DJ Tim Henri.
