Live Shows

The Live Shows are exactly that: Live television shows. Audiences across Europe and Australia will get to cast their votes to add to the Jury scores.

Evening/Jury Rehearsals

The Evening/Jury Rehearsals take place on the evening before the Live Shows. The rehearsals will not be broadcast, but all the national juries will watch the show, and will cast their votes based on this show.

The rehearsals will be exact copies of the live shows, including opening act and interval acts, except the voting part (there will be some kind of simulated pseudo voting though).

The pre-qualified countries will perform during the Semi-final Evening/Jury rehearsals, and a clip of their performances will be shown at the next evening's live Semi-finals.

Family Rehearsals

The last rehearsals before the live shows, take place in the afternoon on the same day as the live shows. They are also called "Family Shows" but will not be broadcast, as they are only rehearsals.

The rehearsals will be exact copies of the live shows, including opening act and interval acts, except the voting part.

Who's in which Semi-final?

The semi-final allocation draw for Eurovision Song Contest 2023 took place on 31 January at St. George’s Hall in Liverpool. The draw determined which countries are allocated to which of the two semi-finals.

Tickets to be made available for displaced Ukrainians

The United Kingdom Government has announced that around 3,000 tickets will be made available for those Ukrainians who have been forced from their homes and are living in the UK - meaning they can attend one of the Live Shows and help mark the Ukrainian group Kalush Orchestra's victory at last year’s Contest.

Ukrainians based in the UK via the "Homes for Ukraine Scheme", the "Ukraine Family Scheme" and the "Ukraine Extension Scheme", will be able to apply for tickets. Tickets will be offered for all nine Live Shows.

Tickets for displaced Ukrainians will be subsidised by the UK's Department for Culture, Media and Sport, and a £20 charge will be applied to each sale. Further details of the application process for the tickets for displaced Ukrainians will be announced in due course.

News about tickets on Thursday 2 March

The British broadcaster and organiser of Eurovision 2023, the BBC, has teased that - finally - there will be news about ticket sales for Eurovision 2023.

According to the BBC, there will be news about tickets on Thursday 2 March at 9:00 CET (8:00 GMT). We will keep you updated here.

Still no news about Eurovision tickets

The organiser and broadcaster of Eurovision 2023, the BBC, announced that tickets for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 were expected to go on sale late in February. That obviously didn't happen. The announcement was made after the semi-final allocation draw back in January.

The EBU (European Broadcasting Union) later changed it to: "More information on tickets will be released towards the end of February". We have serious doubts about this one as well, with just a few hours left in February.

As soon as there are any updates regarding tickets, particularly when they go on sale, we will keep you informed on this page.
