SBS Radio kicks off Eurovision celebrations with SBS Eurovision Radio

SBS Radio kicks off Eurovision celebrations today with the launch of SBS Eurovision Radio, a non-stop soundtrack to the world’s biggest song contest, broadcasting 24 hours a day for the next two weeks until Sunday 14 May.

This year’s Eurovision is set to be the most exciting yet, with audiences in Australia and around the world full of anticipation after Dami Im’s second place finish in 2016 cemented Australia as a crowd favourite. 
SBS Eurovision Radio delivers back-to-back Eurovision hits on digital radio, online and mobile showcasing the ‘official’ Top 100 Eurovision hits of all time, as voted by Australian Eurovision fans. Top tracks include Dami Im’s ‘Sound of Silence’ (Australia), Conchita Wurst’s ‘Rise like a Phoenix’ (Austria) and Loreen’s ‘Euphoria’ (Sweden).
Australians have the chance to cast their vote again this year and support Aussie contestant, Isaiah (pictured)as he takes on Eurovision superpowers from 15 other competitors in Semi Final 1. He must qualify in the Semi-Final stage to proceed to the Grand Final.
SBS Eurovision Radio will simulcast the LIVE SBS coverage of Semi-Final 1 (Wednesday 10 May), Semi-Final 2 (Friday 12 May) and the Grand Final (Sunday 14 May) at 5am AEST.
Listeners can also tune into the simulcasts of the Eurovision Top 40 songs on Wednesday, 10 May at 8.30pm and the primetime TV broadcasts at 7.30pm AEST on Friday 12, Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 May. 
All Australians are invited to join in the conversation and tweet their comments and party pictures using the hashtag #sbseurovision.
