The early bird may get the worm, but the bird who is late can still eat something yummy. Such is the case with Eurovision 2016 tickets, as the third wave will go on sale tomorrow, Friday April 8 at 10:00 CET. As with the previous two tranches, they will go on sale at AXS.com. Given the constant queues and mad dash to snap up the tickets, you’d be wise to log on and create an account now so you are ready to go tomorrow.
Martin Österdahl, Executive Producer of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, explained the additional ticket release like this:
As plans have developed further, new seats have become available and we can consequently release additional tickets in all price ranges, to all shows – even for the Grand Final. The release makes it possible to get all ticket requests satisfied during the Eurovision week and this is for all wallets, as there will be tickets from as little as 100 SEK [around 11 euros].
