At 10:00 CET the ticket sale for the 49th Eurovision Song Contest started! At the website biletix.com tickets for the final can be ordered, priced between 60 and 195 euro. Tickets for the semifinal can be bought for 30-50 euro.
Initially, the ticket sale was due to start last Friday, but the heavy snowstorm Istanbul suffered made Biletix to decide to postpone the kick-off. As traffic jams caused an employee shortage at the ticket sale offices, there wasn't enough capacity to sell.
It appears that TRT is planning three dress rehearsals before the qualifier round and the final. Tickets for the qualifier round are priced 10-25 euro, for the dress rehearsals before the final 20-40 euro.
You can also call the Biletix call centre at +90 (216) 556-9800. At esctoday.com it's not possible to order tickets!
