Eurovision Song Festival, which will be held in the Rotterdam Ahoy, has gotten the green light from the ministers for a certain number of people to attend the concert.
This decision was made on Thursday, during a meeting of ministers discussing the pros and cons of the festival. Even though the coronavirus infection rate is still high, they reached the point that the public will be safe, under the auspices of the Fieldlab program of experiments.
The Eurovision organization said that the tickets are available only to those who successfully purchased tickets for the 2020 shows, and there will be no sale to the general public. May 8, is the day when the ticket will be on sale, and it will cost €113.25 for a ticket for the finals.
There will be some conditions
3,500 people is the maximum number that will have the chance to attend the show, which is half the number compared to other preview regular shows.
Each of the nine shows – six rehearsals, two semi-finals (which will be held on May 18 and 20), and the final (May 22) can be attended by 3,500 people, who must have a negative coronavirus test result, to be allowed in.
People who are considered to be at a high risk of health, are not allowed to buy tickets. This rule involves people who are waiting for a kidney transplant, have serious liver disease, or people with morbid obesity.
