It’s three months before Eurovision 2019 is due to begin and tickets still haven’t gone on sale. However, host broadcaster KAN today has revealed the ticket prices for the shows. But those tickets won’t come easy and they won’t come cheap.

The broadcaster has confirmed that there will be about 7300 seats total in use per show at the Expo Tel Aviv venue. However, about 3000 of those have already been allocated for the EBU’s use and won’t be available for public sale. This leaves just 4300 seats per show for sale to the public.

And the prices for those tickets are not cheap. The least expensive ticket available is a semi-final rehearsal hall seat, coming in at €85. At the other end, prime seats for the grand final will cost an eye-watering €414.

Tickets to a “VIP” area in the Green Room will also be available. The Green Room is adjacent to the main hall and fans will be able to watch the acts during the dramatic results sections.

KAN has explained that the higher than usual prices were the result of the high production costs of the show and that the Israeli government did not finance the show. The smaller venue has also meant that higher prices per ticket were needed to cover costs.

The broadcaster also explained that while the venue can hold up to 10,000 people, the stage size, technical equipment and the security features to prevent another stage invasion mean there was only room for 7300 seats.

A KAN spokesperson also noted that while attending the live show is exciting, the Eurovision production is design for television and fans may have a better experience watching at home.

The broadcaster will also reserve 500 rehearsal tickets for IDF soldiers.

Eurovision 2019 – ticket prices

Note: ticket prices are provided in Israeli new shekels. Our conversion to euros is unofficial and should not be considered definitive.

Live shows

Semi-finals Grand final
Seats in the hall 750 ILS (€183) 1150 ILS (€280)
Level 2 seats 1000 ILS (€244) 1350 ILS (€329)
Golden Ring (standing) 1150 ILS (€280) 1500 ILS (€366)
Prime seats 1250 ILS (€305) 1700 ILS (€414)
Green Room VIP 1000 ILS (€244) 2000 ILS (€487)

Rehearsal shows

Semi-finals Grand final
Seats in the hall 350 ILS (€85) 500 ILS (€122)
Level 2 seats 750 ILS (€183) 1000 ILS (€244)
Golden Ring (standing) 900 ILS (€219) 1150 ILS (€280)
Prime seats 1000 ILS (€244) 1250 ILS (€305)

How do these prices compare to previous years?

In previous years, ticket prices for Eurovision shows have varied. It can depend on the venue size, the average local price for tickets and local demand.

In 2015, tickets to the Wiener Stadthalle grand final ranged from €42 to 390. The following year, fans in Sweden could pay from €53 to €280 for a grand final ticket at the Globe.

In Kyiv, organisers made an effort to make the show accessible to locals, with some rehearsal tickets available at just €8. At the other end of the scale, the most expensive grand final ticket was €500.

Last year, Altice Arena offered a wide range of ticket prices, which made the show accessible to many. The cheapest grand final ticket cost €35, while the most expensive was €299.

While fans are used to seeing pricey VIP tickets offered for each show, the big surprise this year is that the “cheaper” seats aren’t all that cheap.

The pricing has sparked outrage from fans, with many claiming they won’t be afford to attend the show.

When will tickets go on sale?

We still don’t have a definite date. However, a KAN spokesperson has told The Jerusalem Post that tickets will go on sale “before the end of February”, and they will be told in two batches.

Update:

The EBU has confirmed that despite extensive reporting in Israeli media, no official announcement has yet been made regarding the Eurovision tickets.

In a statement, the EBU clarified:“Further to reports on the 19th of February, no announcement has been made with regard to tickets for the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. An announcement will be made shortly on the official Eurovision Song Contest channels.”

They also said that tickets will go on sale “in due time”.

On the one hand, if you’ve been saving money the whole year you can afford it but on the other hand the prices are WAY too high and the reason is that the venue is small so HIGH DEMAND and LOW SUPPLY. Hence, we always want bigger venues to accommodate the demand and offer tickets to everyone, even to those who cannot afford the high prices or the prices of the final. EBU is just doing nothing. I am sure Tel Aviv had bigger venues and stadiums but they were afraid of any possible attacks so they wanted to minimize… Read more »

In 2013 I was lucky to see the final dress rehearsal in Malmo Arena. It was super interesting to see all the tricks and technology behind the camera, but the show looked much better on the large TV screens – including all the filmed content like the postcards and skits – and I spent more time looking at the TV screens than the stage. After the dress rehearsal, we went back to our hotel in Copenhagen, had dinner on the sidewalk and as the sun went down, we watched the live final on a Jumbotron in front of City Hall… Read more »

Ok, really hoping this one’s just a rumor even though the good old EV is talking about it: apparently, Kan’s initial plan for their ESC-themed broadcasting included a miniseries thing about a gay French guy of Moroccan descent trying to compete at Eurovision and being accused of terrorism. Regardless of how it might end (maybe it’s a commentary on prejudice?) or when they pitched it, it really comes off as a slam against Bilal, and France has reportedly threatened to withdraw unless they drop it. Kan’s supposedly defending it on fair speech grounds, and Jon Ola, as ever, is mediating.… Read more »

I will say that Israel loves to poke fun at Eurovision (including, and especially, their own contestants) but they’re also very dark humored.

And that is why you shouldn’t have given the task to host to a country that wouldn’t even be able to put up a good venue like Israel. But no, you insisted on making that fat hen win first, and then not taking away the hosting rights when the budget drama sparked. There is the result – the smaller ESC venue in two decades, in what appears to be a fated lackluster show.
I hope whoever wins this year makes it a lot better in 2020, starting by getting a venue for at least 15,000

1. There’s no need to be rude to Netta, especially since she had nothing to do with the Tel Aviv decision. 2. As far as I know, indoor arenas with 15,000+ capacity are not actually a clad-iron requirement at the moment. But even if they were, wouldn’t that exclude most participating countries from hosting unless they built something brand new? 3. Russia or Azerbaijan will easily solve the capacity problem; if you would like to propose that they host every year, feel free. 4. Slovenia’s RTV Slo apparently is ready to host right now, so I hear.

It would cost way too much each participant country. From what I know, the host country pays the biggest part of the budget under the current system. Edited to add: national broadcaster budget plus additional public budget plus sponsorships. EBU then directs some or the full fee paid to EBU by the participating countries but EBU too have some costs from organizing to traveling, a huge technical team and so on. I don’t know exactly how EBU works but the host countries have the burden. With the neutral ground the costs would be shared by all countries and may exponentially… Read more »

There might be the chance to hear them at iTunes/Spotify/etc. since midnight, because they might be published early on Friday if I remember correctly. But yes, the first time will be in the liveshow, to get some Eurovision feeling for voters who don’t know the songs before Eurovision.

Indeed. In 1999, it was literally just one show for one day. (Ahhh, those were the days.)
In 2019, it will be a two-week festival of rehearsals and shows, and at times that simply do not suit Jerusalem’s religious requirements. Apparently changing the ESC timings to suit Jerusalem was also not possible, hence the final decision. We may discuss, but nothing will change now. It’s in Tel Aviv. End of. So let’s put up and move on.

Eurovision wasn’t designed for the arena audience but the television audience – it was only in the 90s that the show moved from audience members attending in black tie to the naughties when fans went in jeans, t-shirts or the odd spangled top. We just have to accept that when the contest goes to far flung countries with small venues and cash-strapped broadcasters what tickets can go to fans will come at a price. The KAN spokesman is correct – it’ll probably be better on the TV in your living room with mates!

It has nothing to do with politicizing.
