More details of the Eurovision Fan Village have been revealed by UA:PBC. The Fan Village is a key aspect of the Eurovision Song Contest that features every year, and is where both Ukrainian and international fans can gather and enjoy aspects of the host country, and the history of the contst itself.
The village will be open on the 4th of May, and can be visited until a day after the final, on the 14th of May. It can be found on Khreshchatyk Street, between the intersections of Proreznaya st. and Bogdan Khmelnitsky st. It can be easily accessed from the nearby Khreshckatyk Metro station, which is on the Sviatoshynsko-Brovarska Line (also known as M1, or the Red Line). It will be open from 12:00, until 22:00 every day.
In keeping with tradition, the village will feature a large stage at the souther end of the street where both Ukrainian, and part Eurovision artists will perform. No acts have been announced, and a schedule of when performances will take place has yet to be released.
The village will also feature four large screens that will be used during the broadcast of the two semi finals, and the final for those who do not have tickets to the live shows, but still wish to be in involed in the Eurovision atmosphere. The red carpet and opening ceremony – which will be taking place just a few kilometres north near the Ukrainian Parliament – will also be broadcast on the last Sunday before the shows themselves.
The village will feature several stalls dedicated to the official partners of this year’s contest, with Jacobs, and Visa having individual flagship areas on their own. The partner Visa is an American financial corporation that primarily deals with facilitating card transactions. Jacobs is a German coffee company that operates heavily in Ukraine. There will also be a branded bar sponsored by Danish beer giant, Carlsberg.
