Eurovision 2020 Tickets Price

With this year’s Eurovision in Rotterdam being cancelled, ticket-less fans may have breathed a sigh of relief, thinking that they could try their luck next year. Unfortunately, most folks who don’t have tickets this year aren’t going to score any next year either. Only 4% of ticket holders for the planned Eurovision 2020 have asked for a refund. This suggests there won’t be particularly many tickets available to redistribute for Eurovision 2021.

Over the past two weeks, lucky fans who had tickets for this year have been able to decide whether they want to keep their tickets or get their money back. Very few people have done the latter. Dutch media De Telegraaf chatted to an unnamed spokesperson, who said:

“We have received a few more requests in recent days. The majority would like to keep their tickets to go next year and we are happy with this confidence.”

The refund process will begin by Saturday June 6. It may take four to six weeks for people to receive their funds.

Eurovision 2020 tickets

As we all know, tickets for the contest go like wild fire. In December 2019 the first batch of tickets sold out within half an hour. The only thing most fans saw was a message which told them they were in the automatic queue.

 

The host broadcaster AVROTROS revealed on Facebook that the demand for tickets had been massive. Over 80,000 people were waiting and a total of 200,000 tabs were open to buy those precious Eurovision tickets. The organisation also said that the majority of tickets were eventually bought by inhabitants of the Netherlands.

In May, it was announced that Eurovision 2021 will still take place in Rotterdam in 2021. It’s expected to take place in the second or third week of May.

Were you one of the lucky few who grabbed a Eurovision ticket and will be going next year? Were you one of the 4% that asked for a refund? Let us know in the comments below.

Well we’ve requested a refund since it’s impossible to find a room (neither hotel nor AirBnB) for a reasonable price. The rates have skyrocketed (as expected), but people are unbelievably greedy. Prices went from 50–80 € per night to over 400-500 € at AirBnB and hotel rooms would cost up to 2000 € for two nights. That’s absolutely inacceptable. So Rotterdam and the ESC won’t get a single cent from our wallets … And since hosts are willing to rip us off I am not even sad about it.

I’m getting a job this summer in hopes to get enough money for flight and Eurovision tickets, but this news really made me upset. Now there aren’t going to be any tickets for Eurovision 2021. And this ‘queue’ to get tickets seems really stupid.

Just remember, ESC 2020 wasn’t sold out. It was cancelled before the final ticket sales round, so in theory there will be more tickets available. 🙂

Maybe there won’t be another round? Because of corona they won’t allow more people?

I’m hopeful that there will be a sufficient number of tickets available for semi-finals on sale in the last batch. I bought my Lisbon semifinal tickets around March and Tel Aviv semi-final tickets around late Feb. There were plenty semifinal tickets available in the last sale batch In 2018 and 2019 even though the first two had been totally sold out. The Final is another matter of course

I’m Canadian. I was one of the lucky ones who got tickets to semi final 2. We got up at the ungodly hour of 5am twice to get in the virtual queue. No way I was going to give up those tickets to see Eurovision in person for the first time. Hopefully we could fly again by the time next year. Hope to meet Willliams and the wiwi gang next year.
