Fan clubs & news

There are several Eurovision Song Contest fan clubs across Europe, all aiming at promoting the contest and its contestants. Although the contest does not have an official fan club, the Organisation Generale des Amateurs de l'Eurovision is the most popular fan organisation. Active OGAE branches can be found in many of the participating and non-participating countries.

Below you can see and read the news from OGAE fan clubs all over Europe! Also: Check out the fan media news on our Fan Media page as well!

About OGAE

Although the Eurovision Song Contest started in 1956, OGAE has its roots in Finland, where the organisation was founded in 1984. All countries that take part or have already taken part in the Eurovision Song Contest can have their own OGAE. All other countries around the world are united under OGAE Rest of World, founded in 2004.

Every year, the organisation puts together four non-profit competitions (Song Contest, Second Chance Contest, Video Contest and Home Composed Song Contest).

The purpose is to spread national popular music throughout the world and to exercise co-operation over the OGAE network of clubs, cooperation among the Eurovision Song Contest fans, promotion of the Eurovision Song Contest, and establishment of strong relations with national broadcasting companies.

In 2011, Maiken Mäemets was chosen to be the International President for OGAE. For more information and links, visit the website of OGAE International.
