The fourth edition of the Eurovision Spain Pre-Party will take place on April 10 and 11 2020 in the Sala Riviera in Madrid.
In a statement on their website, Eurovision-Spain, the organisers of the pre-party, explained:
“Eurovision returns to Spain thanks to Eurovision-Spain, which will organize for the fourth consecutive year the PrePartyES, which, on this occasion, will be held on Friday, April 10 and Saturday, April 11 in the iconic Sala La Riviera in Madrid. Tickets for the event will go on sale in the coming weeks with special prices for the first people to buy theirs, as well as for the members of the E-S CLUB, OGAE and AEV.”
“The Eurovision-Spain Pre-Party expects to receive another twenty European delegations and their representatives that will present their songs live three weeks before the rehearsals in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, host of the next edition of the festival. The roster will be completed with a dozen national and international Eurovision stars from previous editions that will perform in mini-concert format and receive a well-deserved tribute from the Spanish Eurofans. As if that was not enough, both nights will continue with the two themed parties with capacity for almost 2,000 people.”
“Over its first three editions, more than 100 artists from all over Europe have participated in the show, including Spanish representatives Miki, Amaia and Alfred and Manel Navarro, and guests such as Barei, Ruth Lorenzo, Lucía Pérez, Soraya Arnelas, Las Ketchup, Rosa, Lydia, Betty Missiego and broadcasters Tony Aguilar, Julia Varela and Víctor Escudero. Norway’s KEiiNO, Iceland’s Hatari, Austria’s Cesar Sampson, Germany’s Michael Schulte, Czech Republic’s Mikolas Josef, Bulgaria’s Kristian Kostov, Moldova’s Sunstroke Project, Belgium’s Blanche and Sweden’s Robin Bengtsson are just some of the artists that we have been able to enjoy live in Spain.”
The Eurovision-Spain Pre-Party was held for the first time in 2017 and was deemed a huge success. It was granted “Official Related Event” status by the EBU, giving it the same status as the Eurovision preview concerts held in Amsterdam, London, Riga, Moscow and Tel Aviv. This made the event the first official Eurovision Song Contest related event to be held in Spain since the contest was hosted in Madrid in 1969.
