As Liverpool prepares to welcome Eurovision, it’s one of the events that will host an underwater disco with jellyfish in glitter balls.
Organizers have revealed plans to host a two-week cultural festival in the city ahead of the Eurovision Song Contest in May.
EuroFest will see collaborations between British and Ukrainian artists who won last year’s competition.
BBC Eurovision 2023 Managing Director Martin Green said:
“I can’t wait to see all the jellyfish come to life this May, especially the glitterball jellyfish!”
Inspired by the competition slogan, United by Music, the festival will feature simultaneous parties in Liverpool and Kiev, streamed worldwide for Rave Ukraine.
Twenty other projects have been commissioned to run from May 1 to 14, with details yet to be announced.
Liverpool Mayor Joan Anderson said:
“Once again, Liverpool use their incredible creative credentials to tell their stories and in doing so attract a broad audience to stories that affect us all.
“I can’t wait to reveal all the details so everyone can plan their Eurofest trip!”
Liverpool has been selected to host Eurovision on behalf of 2022 winner Ukraine after Russia’s invasion.
Eurovision Minister Stuart Andrew said:
“The commissions range from the quirky to the poignant and we are happy that our Ukrainian friends are so involved in this program.”
