eurovision 2018 tickets sale november 30

Check that bank balance and get ready to queue! RTP are being prompt with their organisation of Eurovision 2018. We now know that tickets for the May 12 Grand Final go on sale on Thursday, November 30. That’s just under two weeks away!

The sale will go live at 11.00 CET. And as ever, expect there to be a fierce fight for your spot in the Altice Arena!

This first wave of ticket sales is for Grand Final standing tickets only. (This is despite the initial announcement that this first wave of sales would include tickets for the jury show and Saturday rehearsal and seated tickets for the grand final).

Tickets for seated areas at the Grand Final will go on sale at a later date. The second wave of Grand Final ticket tales will take place on 20 December. Tickets to the semi-finals will go on sale in January, after the semi-final allocation draw.

Eurovision 2018 Tickets: Where to buy & how much?

Tickets will be sold through the event’s official ticketing website, Blue Ticket.

This first wave of tickets will also only be for the Grand Final seating areas.

They’ll be priced from at “various levels” from €120 and €200. There’s no details yet as to what the other price points will be, however, or where in the arena they correspond to.

Semi-Finals, OGAE and More

The next wave of tickets will be for the two Semi-Finals and their rehearsals. These tickets will go on sale some time in January 2018.

It’s also likely that some more tickets for the Final and its associated shows will become available, as the stage design is confirmed.

One piece of news that will be welcomed by fans is the confirmation of OGAE packages. 1700 tickets will be made available to the fan clubs from the beginning this year. It’s a big jump from the 900 offered in Kyiv, which was seen as a bonus after OGAE were initially offered nothing.

Portugal knows how to treat Eurovision diehards well, y’all!

Tickets return to earlier release

November has often been the goal for Eurovision tickets to go on sale. Stockholm and Copenhagen tickets were also released in November. Vienna was just behind with a mid-December release.

Of course, nothing can beat the much delayed and maligned Kyiv ticket process. Tickets for the shows only went on sale in February 2017. Even then, the process was fraught with technical woes.

Let’s hope that Portugal and Blue Ticket know what’s coming for them!

nah, you can watch it perfectly from the couch, and travel to other places that also have water in summer. I mean: it is europe, almost everyone have coasts, dah!. In fact, any mediterranean city is more appealing than Lisbon, dont you think?, with that cold Atlantic Ocean. Spending your money to travel in may, when you can travel to Lisbon or other places in Europe at a better date seems stupid to me. In addition, the fact that every show will end at 22:00 in local time, what is going to create is a bunch of drunk people in… Read more »

I also think it is best for you to watch in your couch and don’t bother us with your chauvinistic attitude.

You do realise that Lisbon and Portugal in general, has been having higher temperatures than any other Mediterranean city this year?

Which unfortunately is not a good thing… So it is ok, that some people like Vanuatu will not come, because they won’t contribute less to the ecological footprint and bad vibes.

Does anyone know if they will only be available on the website, or if you could buy them in the stores like Fnac and Worten, that also sell thickets and are associated with Ticket Line?

ussually hotels and travel agencies will launch their packages, some of them with “all included” (ticket+travel+hotel). But that ussually happens after january, once the block from the organizers is down. Cause you may know they block all the hotel capacity for those days for delegations and stuff. So after semifinal draw, each tv will reserve their rooms and then, the lock will be open so travel agencies, hotels and such can start selling their packages. So wait till January/February

Thank you ?
But I was thinking about the ticket only, since I have a place to stay and the train is a fine option for me and that can be booked only one week pior.
But thank you any way ?

I thought it showed, and the ? were just appearing in my phone, so I apologize if it created some confusion. I am grateful that someone took the time to answer me, even if they didn’t know that I wanted to know.
