Famous ABBA Fans Talk: Eurovision Song Contest Stars

No matter how successful ABBA would become in the second half of the 1970s, for many people the Swedish Fab Four will always be associated with their glorious win at the 19th Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) in Brighton, UK in 1974. Waterloo is still rightfully considered to be the main catalyst of their ascent to worldwide stardom. Since then, Eurovision has transformed dramatically, with more countries joining the European scene (a result of the Berlin Wall coming down in 1989) and the abolition of the live orchestra and live stage instruments.No matter how successful ABBA would become in the second half of the 1970s, for many people the Swedish Fab Four will always be associated with their glorious win at the 19th Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) in Brighton, UK in 1974.
