Eurovision.tv have just announced the date the semi-final tickets will go on sale. Those Eurovision tickets will start selling on January 30th, just one day after the semi-final draw takes place.
From to ticket sale
The chosen date makes perfect sense for the Eurovision organisers. Those who wish to buy tickets to the semis may well want to see their own country there. That is why the EBU will release those tickets a day after the semi-final allocation draw.
That draw will be taking place on January 29th. During that draw, we will find out which country will be in which semi-final show. The pots for this draw have been announced a while ago.
Only through BlueTicket
The EBU have made it very clear that only the official ticket partner BlueTicket is allowed to sell tickets. With previous sales for the 2018 contest, it appeared that many other parties tried to offer tickets, often for prices far out of reach for most of us.
BlueTicket operates with a system called Queue-it. Through that system, people wanting to buy tickets end up in a digital queue. EBU have made it clear that the time of joining the queue is not important, as people are assigned random numbers.
The tickets that will go on sale will be for six different shows. Not only the semi-finals on Tuesday and Thursday will have tickets on offer, but also the jury and family shows. The Jury Shows take place on Monday and Wednesday evening. The Family Shows take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, at 15:00 CET.
Previously, two batches of tickets had already gone on sale. They were sold rather quickly, with many fans hoping for extra tickets.
