Billettservice is the only authorized reseller of tickets for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. NRK and the EBU cannot guarantee authenticity of access for tickets purchased elsewhere.

All shows will take place at the Telenor Arena in Bærum, which is about 15 minutes from the Oslo city centre. Note that there will be no parking space in the area around the Telenor Arena and that public transport is the only way to get to the venue.

The seating plan

Eurovision 2010

What about Dress Rehearsals?

The Final Dress Rehearsals are exactly the same show as the live show, but at a lower price, and without voting. The second Dress Rehearsal on Friday night will be taped, and is in particular suitable for those who wish to experience the show exactly as it appears the night after. The third Dress Rehearsal on Saturday morning is in particular suitable for families, who may see and experience Europe’s favourite TV show live in the morning and then return home to see the show on TV shortly thereafter.

Are those tickets expensive?

By standards, tickets are priced attractively. 80 percent of the tickets released cost between NOK 300 and 600. The tickets for the Final have been priced approximately in line with the prices of tickets at the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki, and are priced lower compared to previous years. The duration of all programmes is between 2.5 and 4 hours, including a 45-minute warm-up programme, which is considerably longer than regular concerts or sports games.

Is the Telenor Arena suitable for wheelchair users?

There are designated areas for wheelchair users on all shows.

Do accredited journalists get access to the live shows?

Accredited journalists are granted access to the first Dress Rehearsal of every of the three shows. Those who wish to attend the live shows are kindly invited to purchase regular tickets.

Are there so-called fan club tickets?

Host Broadcaster NRK and the EBU offer members of the OGAE fan club tickets for all shows at an extremely attractive rate. Please contact your local fan club representative for more information. The fan section is traditionally located in front of the stage.
