1 APRIL 2021

Up to 3,500 people in the audience for Eurovision 2021

The Dutch government announced on Thursday 1 April that it will take the opportunity to test how larger events can take place corona-safe and will allow up to 3,500 spectators – half the capacity of the Rotterdam Ahoy Arena – for each of the three live shows and six rehearsals of Eurovision Song Contest 2021.

All spectators must have a negative COVID-19 test result to be allowed into the arena.

In the coming weeks, the organization behind Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will provide more information how ticket sales will take place. This is done in close consultation with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the municipality of Rotterdam and the Ahoy Arena.

Scenario B confirmed – Audience not decided

After evaluating a number of situations it has now been confirmed that Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will be held under the Scenario B basis:

  • Everyone attending the Eurovision Song Contest at Rotterdam’s Ahoy Arena would need to practice social distancing.
  • Strict health and safety measures (including frequent COVID-19 testing) would be in place at the venue. A protocol to protect artists, delegations, and crew on and off site would be adhered to.
  • If there are any delegations who cannot travel to Rotterdam, their artists will perform “live-on-tape” with a recorded performance being used.
  • Those who can travel to Rotterdam will perform their songs live on stage.
  • There would be 9 shows (6 dress rehearsals, 2 Semi-Finals and a Grand Final), either with no audience or a reduced audience to allow for social distancing. The final capacity would be dependent on local government guidelines.
  • There will be activities in the city of Rotterdam held in a safe and responsible way.

A decision on whether an audience can be present at the shows in Rotterdam will be decided at a later time

Ticket refunds for Eurovision 2021

Eurovision Song Contest 2021 can not take place "as normal" this year. The organizers of Eurovision 2021 have been working on four scenarios, and have now ruled out Scenario A.

When Scenario A ("normal" Eurovision) is no longer viable, there will be reduced capacity inside the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam. As there will be less capacity for an audience in Scenarios B and C, organizers have decided to refund all current ticket holders this month and later give them the option to repurchase tickets for the same show or shows.

The number of tickets available for each show will be dependent on government guidelines regarding social distancing. Organizers are keen to emphasize that, if circumstances allow, there will be opportunities to sell more tickets later.

Eurovision 2021 and COVID-19: 3 Scenarios

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and Dutch Host Broadcasters NPO, NOS and AVROTROS are working on 3 basic scenarios for hosting Eurovision 2021, depending on the status of COVID-19. Read more: EBU will focus on Scenario B.
