On 6th of February the final of Pabandom Iš Naujo 2021 took place and “Discoteque” by The Roop was crowned as winner after it received 87% of the votes. The Roop won the show for the second year in a row after their song “On Fire” became a huge hit a year ago. They were among the favourites to win the whole show before the contest got cancelled. After they were selected to represent their home country, Lithuania it was decided that their live on tape performance will be recorded at Avia Solutions Group Arena In Vilnius they weren’t the only artists selected for Eurovision 2021 using the venue as the German representative Jendrik filmed his performance there too. Today the website of the official development agency of the City of Vilnius revealed a special announcement regarding organization of an Open Discoteque in case The Roop wins Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
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 lose 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.
