Eurovision-themed music festival EuroSmash comes to London

A Eurovision-themed music festival is set to take the stage in London!

In anticipation of the ESC 2024 in Malmö, EuroSmash offers a unique prelude, showcasing a mix of fan favourites and cult classics from Eurovision’s diverse history.

The festival, at Woolwich Works on 4 May 2024, promises to be a ’12-pointer’, an all-out celebration of the Eurovision spirit.

Among the first acts announced is Katrina, UK’s very own Eurovision royalty. Hailing originally from Topeka, Kansas, she triumphed at the contest in 1997 with Katrina and the Waves, performing the hit ‘Love Shine A Light’. The group also achieved global fame with ‘Walking On Sunshine’.

Another highlight is Konstrakta, aka Ana Đuric, who represented Serbia in 2022. Her performance in Turin, blending pop with performance art, marked a fresh turn for the ESC. Her entry ‘In Corpore Sano’ not only made the top 5 but also sparked widespread curiosity about Meghan Markle’s haircare secrets!

Belgium’s Gustaph will also grace the stage, bringing a flair of vogue ballroom culture to EuroSmash. His 2023 ESC entry in Liverpool, ‘Because of You’, was a vibrant celebration of the LGBTQ+ community, a crucial part of Eurovision’s heart and soul.

EuroSmash isn’t just about the music; it’s a full-blown celebration of Eurovision culture. Expect a kaleidoscope of events with a Eurovision theme, including comedy, drag shows, gaming, and quizzing. The festival will also serve as a welcoming space for LGBTQ+ fans to revel in the Eurovision experience.

Additional EuroSmash performers and full line-up to be announced soon.
