KAN reveals ticket prices for Eurovision 2019

Got a spare Euro or 500?

Earlier today, Israeli broadcaster KAN revealed the ticket price list for Eurovision 2019. These prices include the semi finals, grand final and rehearsals prior to them. We’ll warn you now, you’ll need a lot of Soldi to get your hands on these tickets…

The show(s) must go on

KAN, together with the EBU and ticketing partner LEEAN, should have tickets on sale before the end of February. However, there is no official date confirmed just yet.

There will be around 7300 seats in total for every show. 3000 of them have already been claimed for the purpose of the EBU. So with that in mind, only 4300 seats will be made available for the public to snap up.

KAN states that the venue can actually cater to 10,000 people. But because of the security features and equipment put in place, as well as the size of the stage, it leaves the fans with just 7300 seats.

The prices

The ticket prices, as revealed by KAN, are in ILS (Israeli new shekels). Provided below is the conversion from ILS to Euros, which are a rough estimate as to what it will cost in the latter.

A moment of silence for all your bank accounts…

An outrage, to say the least

A high production means high ticket prices, that’s what KAN say anyway. The broadcaster further stated that they did not receive any financial support from the Israeli government. In addition, as Expo Tel Aviv is a relatively small venue, KAN needed to cover the costs of hosting Eurovision by increasing the prices of the tickets.

Many fans were outraged by the prices and took to Twitter as a result. Due to this, a significant number of people have said that they can’t afford to go to Tel Aviv this year.

The 2019 Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Tel Aviv, Israel at Expo Tel Aviv. The two semi finals are on May 14 and 16, while the grand final will be on Saturday May 18.
