Denmark was represented by the band Mabel, with the song " Boom Boom", at the 1978 Eurovision Song Contest, which took place on 22 April in Paris. "Boom Boom" was chosen as the Danish entry at the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix on 25 February, and marked Denmark's return to Eurovision after an 11-year absence. Other participants in the 1978 DMGP included both Denmark's Eurovision winners, Grethe Ingmann and the Olsen Brothers.
The DMGP was held at the Tivoli Concert Hall in
Copenhagen, hosted by Jørgen Mylius. Six songs took part with the winner being decided by votes from eight regional juries. [1 ]
