Artists from 37 countries will compete for the title. Denmark's capital is hosting the largest European music competition for the third time; the two previous times were in 1964 and 2001.
For the event, the old shipyard halls are being converted into modern exhibition halls and also brought up to the latest technological state of the art. NUSSLI assemblers will be installing around 8,300 seats in late March for the shows in May. The contract also includes several cameras and commentators' platforms as well as pedestals for the light and sound controls. This is already the third time that NUSSLI is building for the Eurovision Song Contest: In 2011, NUSSLI created the temporary infrastructure in Dusseldorf. In 2012, NUSSLI was commissioned as general contractor by the Azerbaijani State Property Affairs Committee to build the Crystal Hall in cooperation with Alpine Bau Deutschland AG.
