We’re still months away from the contest to be held in Portugal’s capital, Lisbon, but we now know more about the first wave of ticket sales. The first wave of tickets will include Grand Final tickets, as well as the two rehearsals. The first wave will begin on the 30th of November starting at 11:00 CET with prices ranging between €35 and €299.
If you’re interested in tickets for the semi-finals, you’ll have to wait a bit longer, with sales of the semi tickets to take place in January after the Semi-Final Allocation Draw to determine which nations will compete in which semi-finals.
Carla Bugalho, the Deputy Executive Producer of Eurovision 2018 has said, ‘RTP is very pleased to announce the beginning of the ticket sale for the first Eurovision Song Contest hosted in Portugal. We will have 3 outstanding and distinctive shows and everyone that doesn’t get their tickets now, will have other opportunities very soon’
If you’re a part of an OGAE fan group, you might be able to avoid the online queues for tickets, a 1700 tickets across all six evening shows will be allocated to OGAE. These will form packages for the members, and details on how these packages can be purchased will be announced to the OGAE members separately, so keep an eye out on your individual OGAE pages.
The tickets will be sold on the official ticketing website Blueticket.pt
The sale of the tickets will happen in four stages:
The first stage starting on the 30th of November 2017 is only for the Grand Final for those wishing to buy tickets in the Golden Circle, Premium Golden Circle and Standing Arena (See map below). This represents 30% of the total ticket stocks.
The second stage refers to the sale of all types of tickets for the Grand Final. This will take place on the 20th of December. Check price list below to see the price ranges.
The final stages of the ticket tales will take place in 2018 with the date to be announced. This will be for tickets for both semi-finals, and will take place after the Semi-Final allocation draw which is held in January.
