Malmö, Sweden -

On Monday, 26th of November at 10:00 CET the first tickets for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest were put on sale. In addition to regular tickets, the fans have their own ticket quota, and this year they will be allocated tickets on the venue floor. The tickets for the Final were sold out in 22 minutes.

"We are pleased to be able to release tickets to this giant party before Christmas. Since the cheapest tickets don't cost more than 10 Euros, we give as many as possible the opportunity to be a part of this treat in Malmö," Martin Österdahl, Executive Producer for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest says.

Tickets will be offered to nine shows: two Dress Rehearsals for each Semi-Final and the Grand Final, plus three live broadcasts. They will cost between 10-216 euros.

"You can choose between the rehearsal where the jury groups take their decision, the family show in the afternoon, or the live broadcast at night. We believe that there will be tickets for every budget," Österdahl explains.

Special option for fans

There will also be an exclusive period for members of fan clubs to purchase tickets in the fan sector on the floor in the Malmö Arena.

"The fans create the party. They are a big part of the show, and we want them to rule the floor in the Malmö Arena. And to make the fans come closer to the stage, we've taken away the chairs to ensure that the fans will become an even bigger part of the broadcast. The fans' enthusiasm and commitment are a very important part of the feeling in the venue and for the TV broadcast," the Executive Producer adds.

The fans will have exclusive access to tickets on the venue floor for one week, 26th of November to the 3rd of December. After that, the tickets on the venue floor will be open for sale for the general public.

Each fan can buy a package of six tickets for the evening Dress Rehearsals of each show and for all the live shows.

SVT have decided to add one zone for fans wanting to sit down during the dress rehearsals and live broadcasts that are included in the fan packages.

More tickets to come

This will be the first sale of tickets for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest. When cameras and cranes have been placed and the set design is finalised, more tickets will be available.

The 2013 Eurovision Song Contest will take place on the 14th, 16th and 18th of May in Malmö, Sweden. The Dress Rehearsals will be held the night before.

It has been decided that Denmark will compete in the first Semi-Final (Tuesday, 14th of May) and Norway in the second Semi-Final (Thursday, 16th of May).

The shows will all be hosted by the Swedish broadcaster SVT.

    Hi Mike the PL 4 'behind the scene' tickets are possibly the worst tickets ever as you will behind the stage and very unlikely to see anything but you will still be of course at the event and surrounded my other ESC fans but it is up to.
    On the other comment about Malmo/Copenhagen doing some outdoors ESC entertainment then i believe they will having outdoor screens in Malmo and turning the city into a large ESC themed city so would be good! report to the moderator

    Thirdly a question to everyone: Does anyone know what these "behind the scenes" price level 4 tickets are about? Anyone with more information - maybe you've been in these seats before in Malmö - please let us know.

    Troisièmement, un question pour tout le monde: Est-ce qu'il y a personne qui a plus d'info sur les billets niveau 4 "price level 4"? S'il y a personne - peut-être vous avons vu un spectacle ou quelque chose autre à Malmö avant - partagez-le avec nous si vous plaît.

    Thanks. Merci.

    Hi everyone, Bonjour tout le monde!

    First up, to Rumblieburn, More tickets WILL become available, they just have to know where cameras, cranes etc are going to be before they sell them - rather than selling tickets where you can't see anything (except possibly price level 4, but i'll come on to that later)

    Secondly, it's possible that Copenhagen festival will be on at the same time as the ESC. It is usually timed for the whitsun holidays, which this year falls on the weekend of the final. report to the moderator

    My first message must have disappeared?! Well, I wrote a new one:

    I'm so disappointed! Got hold of two tickets to the Grand Final in Malmo on But when I should pay I lost the tickets! Although I had 10 MINUTES left on my order.

    How can this happen? Ticket situation is beneath contempt!

    Hi all. We had already booked flights from UK, but never managed to get tickets ;( is it correct on this page when they say more tickets will be available once set design etc is finalised ? Also, will there be other external events going on in Malmo or Copenhagen on the Saturday night for Eurovision ? This is our first time at Eurovision. report to the moderator

    Spaxen you are right (and that's why I normally hate forums/threads) and it is the company - chosen by Swedish organizers and not the Swedish fans - which did a bad work. But due to the dimension of the ESC this and the whole booking process could have been done in a better way.

    It' s really a shame to offer only these ugly b/w e-tickets! For lots of people (including me) paper tickets reperesent a nice memory of events like the ESC. Normally I expect special tickets to be offered as souvenir and as usual for the ESC!
    And, Egor is right here, by selling tickets with identification numbers on it the black market might be smaller as it actually is. report to the moderator

    Good for you tanita. For a woman that have tickets, you sure complain a lot. You're a very negative person.
    I won't be there becasue I don't have tickets. I just watch it in front of the T.V with snacks and a drink and enjoy it.
    Yet I don't make rants about how unfair it is and how this is and that is bad.

    This will be the last post I post here. I leave it before the two of you find anything more to complain about, which you no doubt will find.
    I wish you all have a great experience there with the rest.

    P.S. If any of your countries win I hope we can bitch about it, as you just did. report to the moderator

    Jajceboy, Spaxen, I will be in Malmo in 2013, because I bought the tickets to Family Final, be ready! report to the moderator

    Oh my holy grail! So now it's time to complain about the color on the tickets... For the last time, Ticnet was selling the tickets, not Sweden nor Swedish companies. Ticnet is an American company. I skip this thread from now because of its degeneration, and I hope I see you all in Malmö, or most of you! report to the moderator

    In these black and white tickets written that they should be printed out and this is the present and the only ticket. like no one let him who is the first one and will be held at the arena. It would be better done in Baku, name cards, then hand dealers nebylo sense to buy tickets. so that the Swedish organizers save and a black is not beautiful thing - your ticket))) report to the moderator
