Once again this year Riga will join the likes of Amsterdam and London in hosting their second consecutive Eurovision preview party.

The party will be held on Friday, April 10th at the Palladium concert hall in Riga starting at 20:00.

At this point in time four of this year’s contestants are lined up to appear at the party and are none other than Aminata (Latvia), Melanie Rene (Switzerland), Vaidas & Monika (Lithuania) and Nina Sublatti (Georgia) while further participations are expected to be announced soon.

In addition to those from the class of 2015 there are also four notable alumni who will attend the party, winners Marie N (Latvia 2002), Alexander Rybak (Norway 2009) and Eldar Gasimov (Azerbaijan 2011). The sensational vocal talent’s of third place winner Zlata Ognevich (Ukraine 2013) will also be on display in Riga.

Concert organiser and OGAE Latvia president Miroslavs Kodis is enthusiastic about the concert and has invited Eurovision fans from Latvia and abroad to come join in the celebrations stating

Our celebration is open to every Eurovision lover. So come to Riga, let’s celebrate together!

Tickets to the Riga PreParty can be purchased here.

Latvia has failed to qualify to the final of the last six Eurovision Song Contests, it is hoped that the creation of a Riga preview party will become a feature on the Latvian Eurovision landscape and help the local population reconnect to Eurovision in the same way that Eurovision in Concert has to the Dutch fans.

I'm an Australian Eurovision fanatic based in the great city of Melbourne. I've been a fan of Eurovision ever since I first saw it in 2003 and I've never looked back. As one of the founding members of escXtra I have attended three Eurovision Song Contests, one Junior and a large number of national finals. These days I am interning and collaborating with Estonian Broadcaster ERR so I am around far less, but you can still see my work from time to time.
