ODENSE, DENMARK – Odense will host Denmark’s national final Dansk Melodi Grand Prix on March 8th in Arena Fyn. In an interview with dr.dk/grandprix the head of entertainment in DR Rasmus Ladefoged talks about the plans for the national final of next years Eurovision host country.
It was time for Odense to host a national final again after 21 years, the last time being in 1993, and even though Herning was a bid for Eurovision, they didn’t get the national final, but Herning will host many other events in the future.
Up to 5.000 people can watch the show in Arena Fyn, but it depends on the scenography in the arena. Tickets will go on sale before Christmas.
2014 will be a special Eurovision year in DR, and Eurovision will affect the national final, but not as a dress rehearsal for the shows in May.
DR have not revealed the hosts for the show yet, but it can be anything from three men to children and animals that will host the national final. Nothing is excluded.
The children’s competition MGP will be on the same stage in Arena Fyn on March 15th.
