Eurovision 2023 tickets: when do they go on sale and where to get them?

Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra won Eurovision 2022 with their song ‘Stefania’.

The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 is returning in May and ticket details have been revealed.

The UK will host Eurovision 2023 for the first time since 1998 on behalf of last year’s winner Ukraine.

This year’s contest will take place in Liverpool between 9-13 May at the M&S Bank Arena on the city’s waterfront.

As nations begin to announce their entries for the semi-finals, fans across the globe will be wondering when tickets are released for the live shows.

It’s been confirmed by the UK government that 3,000 tickets will be made available for Ukrainians who have been forced from their homes and living in the UK.

Other tickets will then go on sale to the general public via Ticketmaster for the nine shows taking place across May as part of the 2023 Song Contest.

What are the different Eurovision shows?

As previously mentioned there’s three shows taking place for each of the main events: the first and second semi-finals and the grand finals.

If you’re wondering what your ticket will get you for each of these, then you can find out more below:

The Jury Show is a full run through of the show that takes place the night before the televised version. It’s when the international juries cast their votes for the participants. Audiences can stay for a randomised version of the qualifier/points reveals, as the presenters practice for different scenarios.

The Family Show is a full run through of the show that takes place earlier in the day of the Live TV Show. It serves as one final rehearsal for the artists and crew, and it’s much more convenient for those who wish to bring younger Eurovision fans. Again, the Family Show features a randomly generated presentation of the qualifiers and points.

The Live TV Show is exactly that: a live television show. Audiences across Europe (and Australia) will get to cast their votes to add to the Jury scores. No randomisations this time – it’s all for real!

Tickets for Eurovision go on general sale at 12pm on 7 March via Ticketmaster.
