About Us

ESCtips is a Eurovision analysis and betting site offering opinion, commentary and song reviews in an honest and fun, tongue-in-cheek style.

We cover all of the main pre-selection shows with greater emphasis on Melodifestivalen.  We keep our analysis short and concise, but expand on theories when the moment calls for it.

If you have some free time and would like to join our team and contribute to ESCtips’ news output, please apply here.  All nationalities are welcome!

The Team

  • Gavster

    Owner & Chief Editor   I’m a qualified designer and the official geek in the crew, dedicating most of my free time to keeping the ESCtips show on the road. My family routes allow me to support the UK, Ireland and Italy.
  • Substantshell

    Fake Social Media Expert   I'm Shell. I'm here for giving mediocre betting advice and writing very mediocre comedy editorials.
  • Ben Gray

    I'm a YouTube Travel Blogger. I also write, produce and present the comedy video series Eurovision Wipe. (click the House icon!) A Eurovision fan since 2005, I figured I'd try and make my knowledge of the contest, and the time it takes out of my year pay me, by getting involved in the betting side of things. I'm a lifelong Sonic the Hedgehog fan, an ardent music lover, and I consider Japan kind of a second home, having visited six times. I'm also in love with Iceland.
  • Black n Blue

    I'm an Irish college student, and have been a Eurovision fan since 2010. Politics and current affairs appeal to me, and as of late I've been trying to make a bit of money off of this contest! My all time favourite entry is Calm After the Storm, and you can also call me Rob.
  • Ruudisss

    I'm a cheeky young scamp from Latvia.
  • ScandieAndy

    Editor, Eurovision Historian & Scandinavian Expert.    I’m a London-based translator born a few months after ABBA won in Brighton. I’m gifted with a brain full of miscellaneous useless pieces of Eurovision information. My long-suffering wife tolerates this and many of my anti-social foibles.
  • Tim B

    Professional trader of shows like CBB, BGT and Eurovision. Rock music lover. Part-time Film + Television Master's student.
