THE NETHERLANDS – The visit of THE KING OF THE NETHERLANDS yesterday was accompanied by media outlet representatives who saw the stage complete and in full action.
Erwin Rintjema (Eurovision 2021 Head of Show)
Eurovision Song Contest is the Champions League in our profession. It is very special because of the size, the number of participants, the level and the innovations on the podium. It is very diverse and it contains all kinds of hidden tricks, with which we make the performances beautiful. For example, we have a TV screen that is 52 meters wide and 12 meters high. Inside there are doors that can open. That has never been done on such a scale.
Sietse Bakker (Eurovision 2021 Executive Producer)
We waited forty years for the organization in the Netherlands and had to postpone it for another year. And that, in challenging circumstances. We are continuously making adjustments. Soon 180 million people will see how it turned out. Hard to comprehend!
Marnix Kaar ( Eurovision 2021 Show Director)
I’ve been doing big shows for 25 years, but that doesn’t come close to this. Especially because it is such a wide stage. It is difficult to hide cameras, especially when they fly through the air. You try to keep all this out of the picture and that is a puzzle.
