Out of the blue comes the slogan for the 2015 Eurovision song contest in Vienna next May: Building bridges. Afte feeling the rhythm, joining us in true fantasies under the same sky it feels just perfect. Vienna has always been a bridge between East and West (a bit like Helsinki). Read the whole story here.
"With "Building Bridges" we have chosen a theme, the idea of Europe with the uniting character of music and that in Vienna, the traditional capital of world music in the heart of Europe." says Dr.Alexander Wrabets, the Director general of ORF. We understand this slogan as a logical extension of the idea Conchita Wurst formulated at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest and also lived: the importance of openness, tolerance across all borders for a joint interaction. With the song contest in Vienna, we want music to build bridges across borders, cultures and languages. In light of the unifying power of this great common European event, we invite all to build bridges and to join hands."
