The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the biggest and most popular music competitions in the world. It is held every year, featuring dozens of performers from across Europe and beyond, competing to be crowned the winner of the camp extravaganza. The competition is always a lot of fun, and it is a great way to celebrate European culture and diversity. 

If you weren’t already aware, the privilege of hosting a Eurovision event always falls to the most recent champion, and the winner from last year was Ukraine. However, given the circumstances around the conflict there right now, the privilege of hosting the ceremony falls to the United Kingdom after the amazing performance by the very popular Sam Ryder.  

This means the UK will now be hosting the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in 25 years, since hosting it in Birmingham back in 1998. Liverpool is the city that won the right to host it, but that hasn’t stopped many different cities getting involved and putting on dedicated shows with huge fan zones getting set up in a similar fashion to the football fanzones that have been a huge trend in recent years.  

 



Eurovision Fan Zone Organising 

These fan zones provide a space for fans to watch the competition, socialise, and enjoy other activities. They can be a great way to create a sense of community and excitement around the event. 

Marquees and gazebos are perfect for creating fan zones. They provide shelter from the weather, whether it’s sun or rain, and they are large enough to accommodate many people. A 9m x 30m Fusion Marquee, for example, can cover hundreds of guests safely and securely. Gala Tent offers a wide range of marquees and gazebos to choose from, so you can find the perfect one for your fan zone. 

To create a successful fan zone, you will need to plan carefully. Here are a few tips: 

  • Choose the right location for your fan zone. It should be in a central location that is easily accessible to fans 

  • Provide plenty of seating and tables. Fans will want to be able to sit down and watch the competition 

  • Set up a large screen TV or projector so that fans can watch the competition 

  • Provide food and drink. Fans will need to be able to purchase food and drink while they are at the fan zone 

  • Have activities and entertainment. Fans will want to be able to do something other than just watch the competition. You could have live music, dancing, or other activities 

  • Decorate your fan zone with flags and banners from the competing countries. This will create a festive atmosphere and help fans feel like they are at the real Eurovision Song Contest 




Eurovision Home Party Organising 

If you are a fan of the Eurovision Song Contest but don’t want the hassle of getting out into town to celebrate with many, then you may be looking for ways to celebrate the event at home with a few friends and loved ones. One great way to do this is to host a party in your backyard or garden. You can use a marquee or gazebo from Gala Tent to create a fun and festive atmosphere for your party. 

Marquees and gazebos are perfect for outdoor parties and offer great versatility for your needs. A classic party tent may take a little longer to erect and set up, but they offer affordable luxury and robust comfort. A pop-up gazebo offers rapid erection times so that you can focus on the other aspects of organising your party, and a variety of colourways that will suit any environment.  

To make your Eurovision party even more special, you can decorate your marquee or gazebo with flags and banners from the competing countries. You can also play Eurovision songs on the stereo and serve traditional European food and drink.
