Things to Know When You Go to Eurovision

2. Don’t stress about tickets

Every year there are stories about how the Eurovision host’s ticket site crashes or other major user frustrations. There’s always the fear of the event being sold out, but remember that tickets are released in waves. The Grand Final will be the hottest ticket, but the semi-final shows are just as amazing.

Consider this: the first-semi final will likely be attended by the die hard Eurovision fans who purposely take off a week from work to go to the event. A good-sized crowd will be in attendance, but it is very unlikely the event will sell out completely. The second semi-final will mostly feature folks who decide to make a long weekend of Eurovision. Attendance will be greater than the first semi-final, but snagging tickets should still be a possibility.
