The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet had reported that an additional ticket sale will take place during next week, with a total of 2000 tickets on sale. The Swedish broadcaster SVT has confirmed that a ticket sale will take place on 29 February at 10:00 CET, but with a total of 10000 tickets to go on sale. It will be the second ticket sale out of a total of four sales.
The first ticket sale took place on 26 November 2015 where people could get Eurovision tickets as christmas gifts for their families and friends, and tickets were sold out quickly.
The second ticket sale will take place on Monday, 29 February, at 10:00 CET, with about 1000 tickets for each show going on sale. “Details regarding the TV production – sketches and stage drawings – are in an advanced stage now, so we could free more places. It means that more people have the chance to experience the shows on location in Globen and there are so many possibilities – one can go with the children for an afternoon rehearsal and watch the Swedish entry rehearsing on stage or to experience the live broadcast of the final”, says Martin Österdahl, the executive producer of the Eurovision Song Contest 2016.
