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.”

Relax everybody, in Ukraine people don’t wear a leaf and don’t sleep in trees.
It is much more dangerous in USA, with all their guns.

Purple Mask from what is known (officially annouced by government) even will be secured with wast amounts of cops in the city to keep things organized and to prevent any crimes (cops are trained to speak English so they will also assist if anyone will need a direction or anything else). Our president and PM take part in preparations so they probably also will add additional armed forces with good skills to make sure everyting is secure. We don’t have much information in media because it’s kinda secret the enemy shouldn’t know 🙂 weapons and trolls. second thought. why we… Read more »

yeah, do as the troll said, bring the gun and spend a week in Ukrainian jail before doportation. it’s prohibited for population to own guns here (unless country gave it to you to defend itself). you won’t enter the country with weapon if you’re not afiliated with any governmental/army/intel institution or if you’ll hide it you’ll end up in jail.

“you better bring either a gun or some security with you” – it was russian troll. In Ukraine, more secure, than in Europe. We are in a war with Russia in the east. But there is no terrorist attacks on the peaceful territory. Kyiv residents will welcome guests

Are the organisers going to address the following concerns?:
1. Is there enough accommodation available for travelers to Kiev for the event?
2. How is the event going to be secured (from the inevitable backlash against it)?

Just reading some of the comments on YouTube yesterday. The one from a Ukrainian that said “you better bring either a gun or some security with you” was particularly concerning!
