This week at the Rotterdam’s council, its members decided that the official fan zone of the Eurovision Song Contest 2021, the Eurovision Village, will be online only. This change of plans was caused by the still uncertain situation with the Covid-19 pandemic.
The zone at the Binnenrotte street won’t be constructed. However, the Eurovision fans will be able to see some “high-quality, virtual and interactive 3D world” online, so their experience will look almost like they were in this year’s Eurovision host city. The organizers hope that about 1 Million visitors will come to see the result of their hard work.
There are less than 30 days until Eurovision and we are still not sure how will the audience look like. The decision will be made, depending on the number of patients on the intensive care in The Netherlands. Thankfully, the contest won’t be cancelled like last year, so in some way we will be able to experience the Eurovision Song Contest 2021, kicking off on the 18th of May.
