Fans at the contest

Fans can buy tickets to the Eurovision Song Contest in two ways; via the official ticket partner and via OGAE. As member of OGAE it is possible to apply for fan ticket packages that give access to all shows. Fan packages usually give access to the floor, right in front of the stage.
As die-hard fan you also have the possibility to apply for a fan accreditation (F). Each participating country awards, at the broadcaster's sole discretion, 10 fan accreditations. In addition, the EBU also awards at least 10 fan accreditations to fans from non-participating countries. A fan accreditation gives access to the second round of rehearsals, the first Dress Rehearsal of each show, the fan zone at the venue and the EuroClub.
Be advised that a fan accreditation does not provide access to the live shows.
