Darude On the road to Eurovision

When Finland’s Eurovision duo takes to the stage in Tel Aviv on 14th May, the performance will be the culmination of a journey for DJ superstar Darude that started last September, when he agreed to represent his country at the event, which attracts a global television audience of more than 180 million people.

Darude – who introduces himself with his given name Ville Virtanen – is partnered with singer and actor Sebastian Rejman on the climate change anthem Look Away, and has had a packed diary since performing the track at Finland’s domestic selection process UMK.

It’s not the first time Darude has been asked to represent Finland at Eurovision, but it was the first time his busy calendar allowed him to say yes.

“My schedule is done for the year. It’s not all Eurovision, but up until May, yes […] I was able to schedule a release where I wanted to, and I was able to push some stuff I was supposed to this spring a little later, so time-wise it fit really well as well” Darude tells News Now Finland at a recent interview in Helsinki.
