    FSC December 2011 - The show - DL: 28th December 2011, 23:59 CET.



    Host city
    Antwerp



    * Antwerp is after Brussels the second largest city in Belgium and largest city in Flanders. Antwerp is situated in the north and has a total population of 483.505, with suburbs over one million.
    * It has one of the largest ports in Europe and was therefore for a long time an important city in the Low Countries. The city is located on the right bank of the river Scheldt.
    * It has also a cultural heritage: in the 16th-17th century it was a flourishing cultural city: Christoffel Plantijn, Pieter Paul Rubens,...
    * Antwerp is a multicultural and very tolerant city towards other cultures and religion.



    * Antwerp is also know for its Antwerp Six and these six fashion desginers established Antwerp as a notable location for fashion design
    * According to folklore, and as celebrated by the statue in front of the town hall, the city got its name from a legend involving a mythical giant called Antigoon who lived near the river Scheldt. He exacted a toll from those crossing the river, and for those who refused, he severed one of their hands and threw it into the river Scheldt. Eventually, the giant was slain by a young hero named Brabo, who cut off the giant's own hand and flung it into the river. Hence the name Antwerpen, from Dutch hand werpen—akin to Old English hand and wearpan (= to throw), that has changed to today's warp.

    Venue
    Sportpaleis



    * Building started on 11 January 1932. It lasted 21 months: on 11 September 1933, the building was completed, the largest indoor arena in Europe.

    * Capacity: 18500 people (13500 seats & 5000 standing places)
    * According to Billboard Magazine: Sportpaleis was the second most visited event hall in the world between November 2007 and November 2008, with over a million people attended. (Madison Square did better)

    For the Christmas-month of December 2011 Norway goes for Norwegian-Irish New Age/Neo-Classical/Celtic music! The performers of the song “The Dream”, which successfully blends Norwegian and Celtic musical culture through melody, lyrics and instrumentation, are the Norway 1995 ESC-winners Secret Garden feat. Moya Brennan (famed vocalist of Irish Clannad) on vocals. For more information and promotion of the entry (including lyrics in English) check out the FSC Norway-thread and the FSC Promotions-thread! We hope you’ll enjoy it!

    Good luck to all entries this month!
