Whether it's the DR Byen or the B&W Hall, every venue in Copenhagen is trying to unseat the 2001 Eurovision Contest's stadium and take on the impressive and infinitely rewarding honor of hosting next years event. Currently the competition's up in the air and it may go to any one of Copenhagen's many vying venues, but whatever the outcome Eurovision 2014 will be a smash.

Tourist organisation Wonderful Copenhagen, coordinating the capital bid with the city authorities, has put forward multiple venue proposals, the most well-known to fans being the 2001 contest stadium. One of its more interesting ideas is the use of DR Byen, home of the national broadcaster. The proposal is not interesting for the location, but more for the manner in which it will house the fans and singers - in a giant tent on a large plot of land at the television HQ. Wonderful Copenhagen push the suitability of DR Byen on the grounds of its world class status as a media corporation, and all the diversity of people and ideas that entails.
