You can be in the audience of the Eurovision Song Contest!
Fifty days to go and then it's time for the Eurovision Song Contest! Unfortunately, a city in Brabant was not chosen as host, but we can still attend the festival. A maximum of 3500 people can be in the audience each time.
Did you try to get tickets last year, but unfortunately couldn't get any? You have another chance to try again! The cabinet has decided to use the festival as a pilot event. You can get tickets for all nine shows: the rehearsals, the semi-finals and the grand finale.
Due to the travel restriction, only Dutch fans are welcome. And if you want to attend in Rotterdam, you also have to be tested negative. Tickets will also be given away to people who are less fortunate financially. It's great news that the public is still allowed to come, because that really adds to the atmosphere of the festival!
A small setback: if the infections get worse, the public will not be able to come.The organization has several scenarios ready, the scenario now chosen is scenario B. At the end of April it will be announced whether the event can continue in this way.
Almost all the entries have been announced already. A standout is the Swiss entry: according to the bookmakers that song has a chance to win. We can also expect a performance by former winners, such as our Lenny Kuhr and the Swedish winner of 2015, Måns Zelmerlöw. We're also going to hear a new single from our big winner Duncan Laurence.
The Song Contest will be held from May 18th to 22th in the Ahoy in Rotterdam. If you cannot get tickets, you can luckily still watch the show on NPO1. It's always a fun night anyway!
