Eurovision final sells out in 75 minutes!
At 10:00 CET this morning, the first batch of tickets for next year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, Denmark went on sale. The interest was massive and at the peak, more than 10,000 people were attempting to get tickets the official outlet Billetlugen. The process ran without any major problems.
Pernille Gaardbo, the 2014 Executive Producer, was very proud of the first round of ticket sales. “It’s crazy! Already there’s such a big interest in taking part in the big Eurovision celebration,” she said to dr.dk.
People from all over the world, from USA, to Germany, to Qatar, to New Zealand, have bought tickets. Of course, host country Denmark and neighboring Sweden took the biggest share of seats.
In just 75 minutes, the tickets for the Grand Final were sold out. About an hour later, the tickets to the jury final and family final were sold out too. Tickets are still available for the semi-finals.
If you did not manage to get the tickets you were hoping for, do not worry. In this first round of sales, only a third of the total amount of tickets were available, as the organizers need to be 100 % sure where the seats will be before they can sell a ticket. The second round will happen on January 31, and there is another chance sometime in April.
