The capital invites the public, as well as visitors, to celebrate Eurovision during a four-day celebration at the First Station.
Jerusalem residents, as well as visitors to the Israeli capital, are invited to attend the celebration of Eurovision music to be held at the First Station starting from Tuesday evening and ending with the announcement of the 2019 winners on Saturday night.
Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion said in a press release that “the Eurovision is one of the largest and most important musical events in Europe” and called the public to use this opportunity to visit “the most beautiful city in the world, Jerusalem.”
The festivities kicked off Tuesday night with DJ Yaeli playing a live set composed of Eurovision songs as the opening of the event was screened on a wide screen. The events will continue on Wednesday when a radio booth will be built in which comedian Michal Shem Tov and broadcaster Noam Fathi, among others, will cover the triumphs and losses of the competition.
The 1978 Eurovision winner, Izhar Cohen, will perform at an evening party which is meant to go on until the wee hours of the night, including old Eurovision hits.
On Thursday, DJ Elad Galili will show his skills on the turntable as the second half of the show will be aired live from Tel Aviv. On Friday evening, First Station will host a Kabbalat Shabbat [Evening prayer welcoming the Sabbath], and on Saturday, Jerusalemites will be able to see the finals, including a much anticipated performance by Madonna, and DJ Soli Nauma who will show his mastery of sound.
