16 year old DJ Pieter Gabriel will produce the music that will feature as part of the Flag Parade in the Eurovision 2021 Grand Final.
It has been announced this morning that DJ Pieter Gabriel and Eric van Tijn, the Musical Director of Eurovision 2021, are working together on a piece of music to be used as part of the Flag Parade for this years contest. Pieter said that:
I think the opening is the coolest thing about the Eurovision Song Contest. It immediately sets the tone for the Grand Final. I’m going to create an energetic, up-tempo, but accessible sound on stage so that everyone can go wild! I hope my music provides a ray of hope in this difficult time. I’m really looking forward to it.
According to Eurovision.tv, “The track will feature a well-known song that originates from the Netherlands in a modern sound.” The Musical Director for Eurovision 2021 went on to add:
I think it’s very special to involve a young and super talented DJ. Pieter Gabriel is so good at his age and very musically gifted. I am really enjoying our collaboration. What we are creating is going to be very good!
The Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will take place on May 18, 20 and 22 in Rotterdam. A total of 41 countries will take part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
