The plans of the Austrian public broadcaster ORF regarding Eurovision 2015 are starting to take shape. The programme director Kathi Zechner revealed the rough outline of their schedule until the end of the year – and yes, we might already get to know the host city and the slogan in the upcoming month!
July: Venue, dates and slogan will be decided on
August: EBU and ORF will sign a contract regarding their collaboration for Eurovision 2015
October: ORF will present the budget
December: Final theme art/design will be revealed
In the meantime, no less than Conchita Wurst revealed her preference regarding the host city – she clearly wants to head for Vienna next year! “I’m also thinking about practical reasons, for example the hotel capacity is something where Vienna has good conditions already”, says the Eurovision winner, “and I would simply be really happy about two weeks of partying in the city I live in”.
As previously reported, we might also be going to Graz or Innsbruck though. Stay tuned for more news on ESC United!
