One of the biggest rock bands in the world Rockin’ 1000 will be part of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest festivities. They are one of the biggest because their band features 1000 members performing live at the same time.
Who are Rockin’ 1000
Fabio Zaffagnini was inspired by the Foo Fighters performing in his hometown of Cesena back in 2014. He had a vision of 1000 band members performing their song “Learn To Fly”. On July 26th, 2015 he made his vision come true as 1000 members performed the song. In 2016 the band played 17 rock hits at the Manuzzi Stadium in Cesena. Now the band is looking for members for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.
Eurovision Song Contest 2022
Italy won the right to host the 2022 Eurovision Contest after Måneskin won the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam. Since then, Turin was selected to host the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest, which is due to take place on the 10th, 12th, and 14th of May. 41 countries were set to be competing in the 66th edition of the competition with Armenia & Montenegro returning to the competition. However, Russia will not be participating in this year’s competition.
The slogan for this year’s Eurovision is The Sound of Beauty, and you can see more about how the stage fits in with the concept here!
