Last fall Eurovision Executive Supervisor Jan Ola Sand suggested that tickets for Eurovision 2017 would go on sale sometime between the end of December and mid-January.
That optimistic timeframe has now come and gone, but thankfully Eurovision 2017 tickets are finally set to be released next week — that’s the week of February 6.
Victoria Romanova, executive producer of the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, made the announcement this morning following the semi-final allocation draw.
According to Ukrainian news site strana.ua, she said:
The price range is wide. All tickets will be distributed in a large number of categories. Therefore, we hope that Ukrainians from all over the country will be able to attend the competition. We will also await European fans, and fans from around the world.
She did not, however, reveal the exact pricing: “We’ll release the prices at the same time we start ticket sales.”
Strana.ua also reports that Ms. Romanova is confident that the International Exhibition Centre can fulfil its duties as a music venue.
“When we signed the lease agreement with the IEC, we had already conducted a number of studies in it — firstly acoustic, because the Eurovision Song Contest requires a high level of sound quality.”
Her team will begin installing equipment and conducting other works in March.
“Traditionally, the organizers of the show get in the Arena for six to seven weeks before the actual start of the rehearsals. Therefore, our work in the Arena will start on 18 March. It will be the first day when all of our technical, manufacturing, and creative teams will start developing a Eurovision world inside IEC.”
