Winner of Benidorm Fest 2023, Blanca Paloma, will host the BCN party
With less than two months to go to Europe’s #1 music happening, Eurovision Song Contest, Barcelona is celebrating the upcoming event with a special 3-day Barcelona Eurovision Party. The second edition of BCN party will be held from March 23 to 25, filled with plenty of live performances for Eurovision fans from the artists of Eurovision 2023, as well as Eurovision stars of previous years.

Eurovision Song Contest, taking place in May 9-13 in Liverpool, UK, has never been as rock-abundant as this year, and BCN party-goers will have an opportunity to witness most of Eurovision 2023 rock acts, chosen in national selections across Europe.
Ireland will be represented in Eurovision by pop-rock band Wild Youth, formed in Dublin in 2016. They won Irish national selection Eurosong 2023 with an anthemic song ‘We Are One’. Watch the winning performance by Wild Youth on The Late Late Show below:

Australian progressive synth-metal quintet Voyager will take the stage of Barcelona and then Liverpool with ‘Promise’. A huge Eurovision fan, Australia will be participating in the song contest for the 7th time.
Italian rock band The Piqued Jacks conquered the people of San Marino in the national selection Una Voce Per San Marino and are headed to Liverpool with the song ‘Like an Animal’.
Young indie rockers Joker Out, formed in 2016, were selected to represent their country, Slovenia, in Eurovision 2023 with the song ‘Carpe Diem’. And the list of indie rockers doesn’t stop there. Latvia held their annual song selection Supernova and laid their hopes on local indie artists Sudden Lights. Founded in 2012, Sudden Lights won the hearts of Latvian listeners with the song ‘Aijā’.
This year Barcelona Eurovision Party will be hosted by gorgeous Blanca Paloma, the representative of Spain in Eurovision 2023. Her flamenco, almost a-capella song ‘Eaea’ conquered Spanish public thanks to her unique voice and artistic, ethnic staging.
BCN Party is striving to make their event as colorful and memorable, as Eurovision itself. For this purpose, they’ve also set up a “green room” for its participants and added large screens. “Our goal is to create an environment like the Eurovision Song Contest, for all those people who cannot travel to Liverpool this year”, revealed Olivier Grau, one of the organizers of the Barcelona Eurovision Party.
