Update: Dress Rehearsal Access
As usual, the first Dress Rehearsal of each show is open to the accredited press and D6-accredited camera crews. You can access with your accreditation badge. However, due to local circumstances, it is important to note a small change this year:
- For the first Dress Rehearsal of the first Semi-Final and the Final, the arena is open to writing press, photographers and camera crews.
- For the first Dress Rehearsal of the second Semi-Final, a large part of the arena will host students from the region, as part of an extensive education programme around the Eurovision Song Contest. Therefore, a special area of the floor is open to a select number of photographers and camera crews. For this, a voucher is required. They will be handed out at the info desk on the 15th of May at 14.30. Writing press can apply for a select number of tickets for the second Dress Rehearsal of the second Semi-Final (on Wednesday evening).
- For the second Dress Rehearsal of the second Semi-Final, a ticket is required for writing press! Tickets can be applied for at the Infodesk at the Press Centre and will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. SVT will do everything possible to accommodate all requests!
