Your Eurovision 2016 Guidebook Is Now Available Written by on May 5, 2016 | 2 Comments

All the songs, all the numbers, the history, and some opinions as well. Download your guide to 2016’s Eurovision Song Contest.

2016’s Unofficial Eurovision Guidebook is now on our proverbial digital shelf for you to download. Chock-full of information on this year’s artists, songs, National Selections, and each nation’s history at Eurovision, this free, downloadable eBook (available in PDF formats) is a fantastic resource to have at your fingertips as we approach this year’s shows.

Still on the fence on whether to download a copy or not? Here are a few reasons to check it out:

  • Learn all about this year’s songs, and be the new ringer on your local pub quiz team! (After all, the book was written and edited by ESC Insight’s own Jeopardy! champion Samantha Ross, along with UK quiz show alumni John Paul Lucas)
  • Read all of Samantha and John’s reviews, and have plenty of material to throw at us if we get things wrong!
  • It’s free, so you literally have nothing to lose!

As always, thanks go to Ben Morris for the Minipop icons that grace the guide book.

Grab your copy of ESC Insight’s Guide to the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest here. (If you’d like to share it online, we’d ask you to credit us here at ESC Insight and link back to this page, rather than pointing directly to the eBook.)

And, of course, let us know what you think! Feedback is always welcome.
