Tomorrow at 10:00 CET the first ticket sale for the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 will begin, and tickets are expected to be sold within minutes. Here is all you need to know regarding buying tickets for the Eurovision Song Contest.
WHERE TO BUY?
The host broadcaster is responsible for providing a ticket office that will take care of selling the tickets. In 2013, SVT chose ticnet.se, DR went for billetlugen.dk in 2014 and this year it was oeticket.at who provided the tickets to the contest in Vienna. The official ticket office for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest is axs.com and fans are encouraged to get their tickets only from the official site.
HOW TO BUY?
Starting at 9:30 users could join the ‘waiting room’ and stand in the virtual line. As ticket sale begins at 10:00, users will start getting access to the ticket sale and be able to choose tickets from the available ones and checkout. It is also possible to buy tickets from Globen’s ticket office or to call the AXS call center at +46-77-1310000
