The stage is building, the artists are promoing all over Europe and now the things are getting more concrete as we have the official rehearsal schedule in Kyiv. And yes, it does include Russia, let's see how that ends up filled.....

As always there's a lot going on behind the closed doors before and after the actual rehearsal on stage. Sweden is the very first one this year so let's have a look at their schedule for the Sunday, April 30:

8.40 Arrival at the Arena and safety instruction
9.10 In-Ear monitoring rehearsal
9.45 Arrival to the backstage
10.00 First rehearsal on stage (30 mins) behind closed doors
10.40 Viewing room (20 mins) to check out the outcome and talk about the changes
11.10 Make up and hair consultation
11.30 It's a wrap. The same procedure goes over and over to all countries.
The rehearsals will be followed by official press meet & greet,
Sweden 12.20-12.40, the others to follow every 40 minutes
(with 20 mins pause in between)

Sweden will be rehearsing for the second time on May 4:
