Every Danish city seems to want to Host the Eurovision Song Contest in 2014. Copenhagen, Herning, Aalborg and now Frederica have expressed an interest in being the epicenter of Eurovision 2014.
The mayor of Fredericia, Kenny Bruun Olsen, said,
“It is not yet clear what are the requirements and conditions to hold the Eurovision Song Contest. But we have agreed to join the race. Fredericia’s large convention center, MesseC, can accommodate more than 8000 spectators ,including the stage and all the television equipment are required.”
“Fredericia in terms of hotels has the 2nd biggest hotel capacity in the country. In contrast, our infrastructure and central location is clearly the best in the country. Then of course Triangle area houses Melodi Grand Prix here in Fredericia.”
Fredericia is a town located in the Fredericia Municipality in the eastern part of the Jutland peninsula in Denmark, in a sub-region known locally as Trekanten, or The Triangle. It was founded in 1650 by Frederick III, after whom it was named. The city itself has a population of 39,797 (1 January 2012) and the Fredericia Municipality has a population of 50,193 (2012).
Expect a possible fifth city to express an interest – Odense. Stay tuned.
