EBU just confirmed that tickets already bought for the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest are valid for next year. Fans will have the opportunity to re-use their tickets for the 2021 event – or to get a refund. But it happens under restrictions.
The Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Rotterdam in 2021. Next year’s contest will take place in the spring of 2020, and tickets will be valid for the same show next year. In a Q and A, EBU answered how it works.
For those who cannot attend Eurovision in 2021, there are two dates to request a refund. From Monday 25 May at 12.00 CEST until Friday 5 June 2020 at 23.00 CEST fans can make their requests in the official Eurovision website. Only the main buyer of the tickets can make this request, and a whole purchase must be cancelled in full.
Once we know the dates for Eurovision 2021, ticket holders will have a second chance to ask for a refund. However, it is also possible to change the names on the tickets if not everybody who had planned to attend can make it.
For those fans who did not buy tickets for the Eurovision Song Contest 2020, it is still early to know how many tickets will be available. The availability of the tickets will be subject to the number of tickets that will be returned, and, of course, the developing COVID-19 situation.
