Set your alarms, start memorising those card details and get your finger on the refresh button. We have confirmation from SVT that the first set of Eurovision tickets for the 2016 contest will be put on sale this Thursday, the 26th of November! Tickets will be released via ticket website AXS.com at 10am on Thursday morning.

Eurovision 2016: Ticket types and prices

The first set of tickets released will be for all three live shows — the first and second semi-finals, as well as the grand final on the 14th of May. Not only that, but tickets for the dress rehearsals and jury finals will also be made available to the public once again. With 14,000-16,000 people able to fit in to the Globe Arena, that means there should be lots of opportunities to see your favourite acts live if you’re making the trip to Stockholm.

Ticket prices for all areas are not yet released, but an Aftonbladet report revealed that tickets will be made available from as little as 100 Swedish Kronor (equivalent to about 8 British Pounds). This means they’ll be slightly cheaper than the lowest priced tickets in Vienna this year. SVT are also set to try and tackle the problem of inflated prices on reselling websites, which will hopefully mean that tickets are not immediately snapped up and priced out of the hands of fans.

In similar fashion to last year, the tickets will be released in stages, so if you can’t get your hands on any on Thursday — don’t stop believing. With the exact stage layout and design still to be confirmed, exact audience numbers won’t be available to SVT for them to release all tickets at this point. Hopefully, we’ll know more on just how many tickets will be released on Thursday in due course.

Executive producer of the 2016 contest, Martin Österdahl, said the decision to release tickets now was so they could be a “powerful and unusual” Christmas present. We’ll certainly take some final tickets in our stockings! Are you planning on going to Stockholm and which shows do you want to make it to? Let us know in the comments section!

@BE That’s it?!!!!! ???? Including the grand final? I’m not wealthy by any means as I’m in college but I’ve been saving up for this for months and I put $1000 towards the grand final ticket. I guess I won’t be needed all of that.

$200 is really the most expensive? Is there some sort of VIP package too?

@Jakob Expect the most expensive tickets to be at around 200 US dollars. 🙂

Fellow possible ticket buyers: Do you know if buying tickets from North America is as smooth as from Europe? I’ve heard that buying Eurovision tickets from a place like California is much riskier and slower than Europe. Is this true? I’m planning my whole vacation for Eurovision and I’ve been saving up for months so there’s no room for error.

Any idea on the usual prices too? I’m willing to splurge for the very best.

“UK will be middle of the road in the betting odds and win by a huge margin.”

Or vice versa.

I’m psychic too, having successfully predicted the Contest winner **during Melodifestivalen**. UK is going to send Katie Price, singing the Single Worst Song Ever Written By Alleged Humans, chosen by the BBC viewers over four other songs that actually weren’t that bad. Amazingly, it won’t come in dead last, because Germany.

im a psychic and have predicted the last 3 years winners- 2016 will be a few shocks- Russia will be red hot favourite, but come 5th. Italy will be one of the favourites and will come one from last. UK will be middle of the road in the betting odds and win by a huge margin.

I’m thinking of buying tickets, I only live one hour away and you never know when you get this opportunity again! I would of course prefer to see the final, but any show is fine to me, even jury finals!
