Official website Eurovision.tv has just published information regarding tickets and accommodation for next year’s contest in Malmö.
Show producer Christer Björkman explained that tickets are a long way off going on sale and that all those available now shouldn’t be bought by fans as they are simply being sold by individuals seeking to make a profit from the show. He goes on to say that a stage design will be drawn up followed by a seating plan before the tickets will be made available through official outlets.
The announcement on Sunday saw a flurry of fans book hotels which subsequently seen all available rooms sell out within the day. Björkman promises that there will be enough accommodation in Malmö for fans but that for now, most rooms have been block booked for delegations. Furthermore he says SVT are looking at ‘alternative accommodation’, details of which will be published soon.

He had this to say in regards to the contest being held in Malmö next May: ”By arranging the event in Malmö, we believe that we can create a Eurovision Song Contest in its true spirit, where focus lies with the heart and the artists. We are going to create a Eurovision world that will be an amazing experience for everyone that visits the city”
