As of today, with the release of Georgia’s entry for Eurovision 2023, we now have all 37 entries for this year! While it’s sad to move on from the national selection season, we are now one step closer to Eurovision itself — with some exciting stops along the way!

We are now at that fun spot in the Eurovision cycle where pre-parties are the next big thing to look forward to. Taking place throughout Europe, the pre-parties are Eurovision concerts which also act as debuts for many of the year’s Eurovision contestants. Many artists use these parties as opportunities to practice performing their songs in front of a live (and very excited!) crowd, as well as to begin their promotional journeys.

Madrid’s Sala La Riviera concert hall, which will host the first pre-party of the 2023 Eurovision season this April.

This year, it has so far been confirmed that there will be pre-parties held in Spain (PrePartyES), the United Kingdom (London Eurovision Party), and the Netherlands (Eurovision In Concert).

PrePartyES will take place soonest, from the 7th to the 8th of April, at Madrid’s Sala La Riviera. It has now been confirmed that several Eurovision 2023 artists will perform there, including:

  • Blanca Paloma (Spain)
  • Voyager (Australia)
  • Gustaph (Belgium)
  • Teya and Salena (Austria)
  • Joker Out (Slovenia)
  • Alika (Estonia)
  • La Zarra (France)
  • Wild Youth (Ireland)
  • Sudden Lights (Latvia)
  • Pasha Parfeni (Moldova)
  • Monika Linkyté (Lithuania)
  • Alessandra (Norway)
  • Blanka (Poland)
  • Mae Muller (United Kingdom)
  • Piqued Jacks (San Marino)

Blanca Paloma will perform on Friday the 7th, whereas all of the other Eurovision 2023 artists will perform on the 8th.
