Kristian Kostov is set to join London Eurovision Party 2017
The Bulgarian representative at Eurovision 2017 Kristian Kostov will be featured in this year’s anniversary edition of London Eurovision Party. The event will take place for tenth time in history and is scheduled for April, 2nd. Besides Kristian, the party will be a meeting point for other 19 contestants to date. These include the representatives of France, Denmark, Belgium, Malta, Italy, Romania, Macedonia, Poland, Germany, Albania, Unite Kingdom, Spain, Austria, Ukraine, Slovenia and Montenegro.
“I am extremely excited and grateful for the opportunity to perform my song for the very first time in front of live audience. This is very important part of our preparation for the contest in May. Moreover, I see this event as a priceless opportunity to meet other contestants, to create new contacts and friendships which is the most important part of the Eurovision adventure. Also, maybe the most important part of all is to get the first feedback for my life performance. It’s important to find out what’s not working well and what is fine as it is, so that we can draw conclusions. I am fully aware of the fact that the live performance will decide everything, so having the opportunity to perform live before the contest is crucial.”, says Kristian.
One of the main organizers of the event Russel Davies was also excited to welcome Kristian in the Eurovision family:”I am most delighted to welcome Bulgaria once again to the London Eurovision Party. Last year, Poli’s performance was certainly one of the highlights of the evening and gave the first impression of the success that soon followed in Stockholm. I have no doubt that Bulgaria will be well represented by the talented Kristian at this year contest, and that he will also make a strong first impression to Eurovision fans with his London performance. I am expecting this young performer to give an emotional performance to capture the hearts of the UK fans. Promotional events such as the London Eurovision Party are the perfect opportunity to give upcoming Eurovision performers a chance to gain feedback from a dedicated audience and gain international press coverage prior to the actual contest.”
Over the course of the weekend more similar announcements for other pre-Eurovision events will follow. Currently we are about to confirm another two in the schedule of our artist with some more to be clarified until the end of next week.
