Safety at a national song contest

Iceland is set to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin Italy in May. ÖRUGG worked with the Icelandic broadcaster Ríkisútvarpið (RÚV) who organised the national final Söngvakeppnin 2022, to select the Icelandic entry for the contest. The winner was the song "Með hækkandi sól" performed by Systur.

The song contest was held in Rvk studios in Reykjavik, which is designed for various types of film and television production. Live Production was responsible for the general project management.

ÖRUGG was responsible for the fire safety assessment and holistic response planning for the event. We did a number of calculations and risk assessments to ensure safety on-site, as shown in the Figures below.

ÖRUGG specializes in crowd safety and has been involved in all types of production for concerts, TV and film.
