As we reported yesterday, tickets for Eurovision 2016 will go on sale on AXS.com at 10:00 CET this Thursday, 26 November. Last year tickets for the final in Vienna sold out after only 20 minutes. It’s time to draw up battle plans!

Instructions for buying tickets
It is strongly recommended that you buy tickets from either AXS.com or via the Stockholm Globe Arena’s box office.
- Remember that you need to create an account on AXS in order to buy tickets. Make sure you do this before the actual sale starts. A virtual “Waiting Room” will open 30 minutes ahead of the sale. Everyone registered in the “Waiting Room” during these 30 minutes will have priority access when the tickets are released. But remember, your are not guaranteed tickets even if you are in the “Waiting Room”.
- Do not, I repeat it again… DO NOT refresh the page. This will be done automatically.
- Choose the amount of tickets you want.
- You will get a ticket proposal. If you reject the proposed tickets you will return to the back of the line. If you are happy with the tickets just pay and voilà… enjoy that you are now the lucky owner of a Eurovision ticket.
Whew! That’s a lot to take in. And don’t worry if you fail to get your hands on a ticket first time round. More tickets may be released at a later date. The Globe Arena has a capacity of between 15,000 and 16,000. Depending on the size of the stage and the layout of the TV-production the total amount of tickets available for sale could go up. Stay tuned to the Stockholm Globe Arena’s website for updates.
