In just five days it’s time for the annual Eurovision in Concert is taking place. 24 acts have already confirmed participation in the event, a grand sixty percent of this year’s acts.

Fans and press from all over the world will travel to Amsterdam this weekend to attend what many call the first dress rehearsal for Eurovision. It will be the seventh time the concert will be held and it has once again sold out completely. Also attending the event will be Sietse Bakker, the Event Supervisor of Eurovision.

Media Liaison: One of the founding members at escXtra. I'm the Dutchman who loves every little idiotic Eurovision fact there is. I usually listen to a lot of Eurovision music, but when I'm not, I listen to country music, schlager and pop, but mostly artists like Tina Turner, Emma, Ilse DeLange and Helene Fischer. On escXtra, you can find me doing pretty much anything that needs doing: Interviews, liveblogs or just your daily portion of news!
