Who's in which Semi-final?

Ukraine and the Big-5 countries (Germany, France, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) are pre-qualified for the Grand Final on 13 May 2023. The other 31 countries will be allocated to one of two Semi-finals, which will be held on 9 and 11 May 2023. The allocation draw will be made in January 2023.

10 countries from each of the two Semi-finals will advance to the Grand Final, which will feature a total of 26 countries: 10 from Semi-final 1, 10 from Semi-final 2, Ukraine and the Big-5.

When will tickets go on sale?

Tickets usually go out early in the same year, or late in the year before the contest. We expect the tickets for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 to go on sale in late 2022.

The start of ticket sales depends on several factors: Firstly, the host city (Liverpool) and arena (Liverpool Arena) must be chosen. Secondly, selection of the ticket agency. Thirdly, a floor plan of seats/stands in the arena once stage design, green room and camera placement have roughly been decided.
