Tickets for the ESC shows in Liverpool

Ticket sales started on March 7th at 1 p.m. (CET). All ESC shows are actually sold out. Further ticket sales are currently not planned. Tickets were only available through Ticketmaster UK and cost between £30 and £290 for the semi-final shows and between £80 and £380 for the final shows. Since April 24, however, there are still remaining tickets available in advance. As every year, the EBU warns all fans not to buy tickets for the ESC shows on the black market or via anything other than the official online ticket platform. These cards are usually not only overpriced, but they could also be counterfeit and therefore not valid.

New rules for the ESC semi-finals

As of this year, the jury in the ESC semi-final shows is abolished. Only the televoting decides which acts move into the final – ten from the first and ten from the second semi-final. Which country starts in which semi-final was drawn on January 31 in the so-called Allocation Draw in Liverpool. The starting order was determined by the show’s producers based on dramaturgical aspects and announced on March 22nd.
