Eurovision Insight Podcast: Insight Asks Ola Melzig and Henric Von Zweigbergk Written by on May 12, 2017 | 1 Comment

Ewan Spence talks to Eurovision 2017’s Head of Production Ola Melzig, and Senior Floor Manager Henric Von Zweigbergk… you might not see them on screen, but without them, there is no Eurovision Song Contest 2017.

Our series of interviews at Kyiv 2017 and the Eurovision Song Contest continues with two of the biggest names behind the scenes. From the construction of the stage and choosing the caterer, to controlling Sven the Chandelier and building a secret little house at the stage door; nothing happens at Eurovision without Ola and Henric knowing about it.
