Though safety will remain the top priority, just imagine how uplifting dancing the night away at Vilnius’ Open Discoteque would be. Plus, it would certainly be among the first-ever discotheques set in a UNESCO-listed Old Town, and the fresh air and open spaces will inspire everyone to let loose and have tons of fun.
Vilnius inspired cities around the world last year when it transformed into a giant open-air café to support businesses and give the community a sense of normalcy in unprecedented times. With the possibility of this concept returning again this year and the Roop-inspired Open Discoteque, the city will definitely be able reinforce the reputation it’s building as a trend-setter.
Sure, the Open Discoteque depends on The Roop winning this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, but it’s a bet the city is willing to take. Bookmakers have The Roop ranked among TOP entries to win it all. Plus, The Roop has a lot of good karma coming its way – On Fire, their catchy entry to last year’s contest was an instant hit and many considered it to be a favourite to win. We all know what happened next…
Despite last year’s contest being cancelled, On Fire went on to win the German alternative TV final – Das Deutsche Finale. Also, in 2020 ESC Radio listeners voted for the The Roop to win both their Best Group and Best Song awards. Needless to say, The Roop is coming into the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 with a lot of momentum, so let’s keep our fingers crossed.
After spending more than a year in limbo, we’re all ready for something amazing to look forward to, and Vilnius’ Open Discoteque is just that. And don’t worry if you’re unsure about your dance moves – the band has some quirky and easy-to-master choreography, and anything else would work just fine at Open Discoteque. Take it from The Roop, who believe that music and dance can set us free: “There’s not a single person who can’t dance. Dancing is innate; it’s a tool that can also heal scars.”
So, if you love Eurovision as much as Lithuanians do, and think the idea of having an open-air discotheque in Vilnius sounds like an unmissable party, make sure to support The Roop in their quest to win this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. A win for The Roop will be a win for everyone who gets to dance at Vilnius’ Open Discoteque.
