Our Team

ESCXTRA began in 2011 when we decided we wanted to give you more, give you XTRA! For six years we have been covering everything that surrounds the world’s biggest entertainment show and bringing you closer to the Eurovision Song Contest. We are now one of the most popular independent fan sites that cover the contest and we thank you all for your continued support!

Of course, ESCXTRA couldn’t run without the dedicated work of our wonderful team of editors. Our 38 contributors are from all over the world, with 22 different nationalities amongst us! To find out more about us, read our official profiles and follow us on our personal social media accounts using the links below.
