The long-running Eurovision promotional event London Eurovision Party returns for another year to celebrate the start of Eurovision 2023.

Contestants from the last song contest season — and some surprise stars of yesteryear — will grace the British capital this spring.

Last season’s show saw 21 Eurovision 2022 acts grace the Hard Rock Hotel stage. Notable stars included Spain’s Chanel, Sweden’s Cornelia Jakobs, and Lithuania’s Monika Liu, headlined by the UK’s Sam Ryder.

When is the London Eurovision Party?

London Eurovision Party is a Eurovision promotional event that will take place on Sunday, April 16, at 6pm at HERE at Outernet.

It is the largest Eurovision pre-show in the UK. A few musicians from the 2023 class and former song contest competitors will travel to the British city for the occasion.

The musicians will have the chance to perform in front of a British audience in London before they head to Liverpool for the contest in May.

Who’s performing at the London Eurovision Party?

Five-piece band Voyager will perform at this year’s Eurovision Party.

Daniel Estrin, who plays keyboards and sings for the group, is joined by Simone Dow and Scott Kay on guitars, Ashley Doodkorte on drums, and Alex Canion on bass.
