Eurovision 2020 Tickets Price

During the latest press conference regarding the state of the song contest, organisers confirmed that all Eurovision 2021 tickets will be refunded in February.

There were no official tickets sold for Eurovision 2021. But ticket holders from the cancelled event in 2020 had the opportunity to hold on to their tickets for this year’s contest.

Eurovision 2021 tickets will be refunded in February

However, with the latest update, organisers have decided to refund all current ticket holders this month. This follows the February 3 announcement that Scenario A — a normal Eurovision with full audience — is no longer an option.

“As there will be less capacity for an audience in Scenarios B and C, organizers have decided to refund all current ticket holders this month and later give them the option to repurchase tickets for the same show,” the official statement from the EBU says.

At a later stage, when there is more information about the capacity of the actual venue is known, ticket holders can reclaim their seats.

“The number of tickets available for each show will be dependent on government guidelines regarding social distancing. Organizers are keen to emphasize that, if circumstances allow, there will be opportunities to sell more tickets later.”

The number of tickets available for Eurovision 2021 remains unknown. However, if there is an audience, we know that it will be reduced by at least 20%. Following Scenarios B and C, which both allow spectators in Ahoy, the capacity is going to range anywhere between 0% and 80%.

The capacity might eventually increase if the situation allows

In their statement, the EBU emphasise that, if circumstances allow, there will be more tickets available for the public.

Eurovision 2021 Executive Producer Sietse Bakker said:

“By pushing the decision regarding the audience towards, at the latest mid-April, we hope we can responsibly Open Up to welcoming fans in Ahoy for this year’s shows.”

Earlier on, Bakker shared that the Dutch organisers have made the venue flexible enough to be able to adapt to the different situations.

In an interview last month, Bakker revealed that the decision announced now will not necessarily be final. According to Sietse, Ahoy Rotterdam and the Dutch Eurovision team can still scale the contest up in the time between February and May.

Does anyone know, do we have to accept the refund and give up our ticket even if we don’t want to? If my partner and I showed up to AHOY on 22 may with our tickets, could they legally turn us away or would they have to show us to our seats?

I know the tickets we have are for 2020 but we paid for grand final tickets and that is what I want. I have been every year since 2017 and I don’t want to miss out

So I don’t really understand the option to buy them again in April. I bought mine through TicketSwap, does that mean I won’t be getting that opportunity?

I managed to get tickets for 3 shows. It’d be my first time attending the show. It’s where I’ve been waited my whole life for. I’m really sad that the tickets got cancelled and now I have a small or no chance to get my seats back. If I can’t get any tickets in mid april I would be heartbroken. ;_;

I was surprised as well. The first wave I couldn’t get any and I was very lucky in the second wave. I had tickets for a live show, jury show and family show. I hope I can at least get tickets again for the live and jury show.

Well I sadly never managed to get tickets for last years show. I have been going every year since 2013. I’m English and my best friend from Sweden we meet every year, wherever it is. I would be devastated if we couldn’t get tickets there this year for the first time :(. It is what it is though I know there will be many in the same boat. I’m hoping there will be at least eurovillage to go there to watch it if needs be, has anyone read anything about if that will be going ahead?

Devastated? Such an overstatement! What about the people who have lost their loved ones to this damn virus? THEY are devastated, not you and your stupid tickets. Get a grip!!

Nasty. This is a Eurovision fan site. People can be very sad about things regarding the contest, that doesn’t mean they don’t know that there are more important matters in the world.

After 44 years the Netherlands finally won Eurovision. I had the chance to get tickets (fan package, via OGAE). What a deception to read all tickets are ‘cancelled’. Of course I am happy to get my money back (€799). But also sad to see my first ever Eurovision go. Glad there is still a small chance some tickets come available. And if that chance won’t come, I’ll give it a try next year. My first ever Eurovision will come one day!

We had tickets for the final jury show. It is as it is. But I was lucky enough to attend the GF in Duesseldorf. In 2011.
