Earlier today the first tickets for the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 in Malmö were released. The interest was great and the tickets for all the live broadcasts sold out during the afternoon, while there were still a few tickets left for the rehearsals.
Ebba Adielsson, executive producer of the Eurovision Song Contest 2024, confirmed what we reported in our article earlier today that not all ticket types were available to purchase today for production reasons and commented:
“It’s great fun with the great interest and of course we want to offer as many people as possible to see one of the nine shows between May 6 and 11. For production technical reasons, we could not release all tickets now. More tickets will be offered later so those who did not get a ticket now will have a second chance.”
Due to the high pressure on the ticketmaster.se website, they have chosen to slow down the pace to ensure that ticket sales take place in a safe manner. Ebba said:
“We are happy that the technology worked as it should and at the same time grateful for the patience the ticket buyers had in the long queues.”
There was huge engagement even when the BBC released their tickets for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023, a telecast watched by over hundreds of millions of people worldwide and millions more online.
“It is only half a year since the fantastic competitions when Loreen took home the historic win, certainly that and the great buzz on social media may have contributed to the great interest in the Eurovision Song Contest 2024”
says Ebba Adielsson.
