Eurovision Finalists to Play Free Concert In Minsk

On June 3, Naviband, a duo who represented Belarus at Eurovision 2017, invite fans to join them at a concert, which will be held at Minsk City Hall. This is the first performance of Naviband after the song contest, and the musicians are looking forward to sing their hits live. An hour–long set will feature their song Historyja majho žyccia (Story of My Life). The admission to the concert is free.

Naviband ended up on the 17th place at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 with 83 points. According to the band members Artem Lukyanenko and Ksenia Zhuk, the final result of the contest did not disappoint them. Their main aim was to enjoy the contest night and to promote Belarusian culture. Artem and Ksenia think of their performance as important for the national language and the youth of Belarus. Naviband are the first artists to perform in Belarusian at Eurovision.

The duo have no plans to participate in Eurovision again, as they want to concentrate on their music. They are also very happy for the winner, Salvador Sobral of Portugal. Artem and Ksenia praised his performance and his character, saying that Salvador is a generous person.

Belarus has been participating in the Eurovision Song Contest since 2004. The country qualified for the finals in 2010, 2013, 2014 and 2017. To date, Dmitry Koldun remains the most successful Belarusian entrant, having finished sixth in 2007.
