On the 9th of April 2022 it is that time of year again, then “Eurovision in Concert 2022” will take place in AFAS Live in Amsterdam.

Eurovision in Concert is a show in Amsterdam where the entrants of that particular year’s contest gather for the first time. For most entrants it is the first time they meet each other backstage and on the stage of the AFAS Live venue. For fans it is also the first time that they see many acts live for the first time, which creates a bond when they see their favorites compete in the actual contest of that year. Next to the entrants of a specific year, there are also special acts of i.e. legendary Eurovision entrants.
