If you’re considering going to Eurovision 2024, there was some exciting news this weekend about a possible release date for tickets.
The News About Tickets:
A report in Swedish newspaper Skånska Dagbladet stated that organisers in Malmö are hoping that tickets for the 2024 contest will be released before Christmas. This would make a change from previous years when tickets were released much closer to showtime.
The newspaper also reports that Malmö is “charging up” for its third time hosting the contest. Karin Karlsson, lead project manager for Eurovision 2024, says that the goal is to sell more tickets than ever before:
“Of course we want as many people as possible to be able to see everything in place. Last time, 83,000 tickets were sold and we hope for even more in 2024.”Karin Karlsson, Interview with Skånska Dagbladet, 22nd September 2023
The Journey to Eurovision 2024
The Nordic country will be hosting the 68th edition of the competition following Loreen’s historic win at Eurovision 2023 in Liverpool. One month after the 2023 contest took place SVT revealed the Core Team that would be working on the competition, with this being completed in September.
Four cities were in the running to host the 68th edition of the competition (Gothenburg, Malmö, Örnsköldsvik and Stockholm), with SVT settling for Malmö as the host city. The competition will take place on the 7th, 9th & 11th of May at Malmö Arena.
