Eurovision in Concert: a history
Eurovision in Concert was founded by a group of Dutch Eurovision fans, and has become one of the biggest and most popular Eurovision pre-parties. The concert has taken place in The Netherlands every year since 2009, and in the most recent concert in 2019, 28 out of 41 participating countries were present.
As the concert has evolved over the years, becoming bigger and more popular among Eurovision fans and participating countries alike, many changes have needed to be made to accomodate this. The current venue, AFAS Live, with a capacity of 6,000, is a big arena in Amsterdam that has hosted Junior Eurovision 2012 among many other events.
Staying true to it’s popularity, the most recent concert in 2019 saw 28 out of 41 participating countries performing at the event in Amsterdam.
