For the first time ever this year, Eurovision will be broadcast live in the United States (the LGBT-themed cable channel Logo will be carrying the event). But let’s be honest. If you have the option, wouldn’t you rather watch Eurovision in a bar, with a rockin’ sound system and a rowdy crowd of cheering and jeering European expats, rather than sitting on your couch at home? I thought so.
If you can get to New York City on May 14, 2016, then join us for our third Eurovision Watch Party. When we did this in 2013 and 2015, we attracted overflow crowds, so this year, we’re moving the party to a bigger venue. Here are the details:
Eurovision 2016 Viewing Party
The Liberty (29 W 35th St, New York, NY 10001)

Finals start at 3 PM. We start showing videos of songs that didn’t make the finals at 2 PM.
