They have their own Eurovision camps and cruises, and they make their own versions of the songs. An essential part of the fandom is the fan media, which covers Eurovision-related news 24/7. This documentary takes us on a musical tour from Wales to Mexico, from Finland to the Netherlands, from Ukraine to Australia, from the Philippines to Argentina.
