The Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 will take place in the Malmö Arena on Saturday 11 May with Semi-Finals on Tuesday 7 and Thursday 9 May.

Swedish broadcaster SVT, together with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), will organise the Contest thanks to Loreen’s historic win in Liverpool in 2023.

Malmö was chosen following a strong city bid process that examined facilities at the venue; the ability to accommodate thousands of visiting delegations, crew, fans and journalists; infrastructure; and other criteria.

Eurovision Song Contest Executive Supervisor Martin Österdahl welcomed the news: “The EBU is thrilled that Malmö has been selected as the Host City for the Eurovision Song Contest 2024. Malmö holds a special place in the history of the Contest, having successfully hosted it firstly in 1992 and then in 2013 – following Loreen’s last win. We’re excited to be returning to this vibrant and dynamic city which has demonstrated it has the venues and infrastructure that are perfect for staging the world’s largest live music event. Malmö’s commitment to diversity, inclusivity, and innovation aligns perfectly with the spirit of the competition. Furthermore, its compact size and well-developed transport infrastructure means everyone involved in the Contest, including delegations, media, and fans will be able to navigate the city easily. Its commitment to sustainability and green initiatives also aligns perfectly with our own values, making it an ideal Host City for the 68th Eurovision Song Contest. Malmö’s bid demonstrated a huge passion for the Eurovision Song Contest, and I have full confidence in their ability to create an unforgettable experience that will bring together fans, artists, and viewers across the globe. Together with Host Broadcaster SVT, we will create an extraordinary celebration of music, unity, and diversity that will captivate the world in May next year.”

Ebba Adielsson, Executive Producer for SVT added: “When we finally had all the options, we did an overall assessment to consider all factors involved in organizing this huge event. Malmö was eventually chosen as it met all the criteria and provides a location with great venues and is a city where all those attending the Eurovision Song Contest can move around easily. Malmö is also firmly committed to providing both those visiting and living in the city a chance to participate in the festivities.”

It is the third time that Malmö has hosted the Eurovision Song Contest following 1992 and 2013 editions and it will be the first time the Eurovision Song Contest hasn’t visited a capital city for 5 consecutive Contests.

Sweden itself will host the Eurovision Song Contest for the 7th time in 2024 having previously also staged the competition in Stockholm in 1975, 2000 and 2016, in Gothenburg in 1985, and those Contests in Malmö.

“We are proud and happy to welcome the Eurovision Song Contest to Malmö again”, said Katrin Stjernfeldt Jammeh, chairman of the city’s municipal executive board.

“Malmö will deliver the same amazing feeling as 2013 – but with new experiences in 2024. We have a modern and sustainable infrastructure and a will and capacity to arrange a proper festival for all ages.”

The Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 will take place in the Malmö Arena on Saturday 11 May with Semi-Finals on Tuesday 7 and Thursday 9 May.

Many fans will be wondering ‘When can I buy tickets for Eurovision?’ but some might not know that there are actually 9 shows you can watch live at the arena! 

To be the first to know when Eurovision Song Contest 2024 tickets will go on sale subscribe to our social media channels (YouTubeInstagramTikTok, Threads, Twitter and Facebook). Along with, these are the first places that important announcements are made regarding the live shows in May next year.

Tickets: On sale soon. Ticket prices, availability, and even the ticket provider, takes a little time to decide while organizers evaluate how much space is needed for the production inside the venue. Because the Eurovision Song Contest is a live TV production some sections of the seating may need to be altered to make way for cameras, technical equipment and the stage. This is always entirely dependent on the chosen venue. 

If you haven’t bought tickets for a Eurovision Song Contest before: listen up! The Eurovision Song Contest isn’t just one Saturday night spectacular… it isn’t even just the three broadcast Semi-Finals and Grand Final… it’s actually 9 shows across the Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday of Eurovision week!

There are 9 shows in total!. Once ready, tickets will go on sale for the following 9 shows:

  • First Semi-Final: Tuesday 7 May: Live TV Show [Tuesday 7 evening]; Jury Show [Monday 6 evening]; Family Show [Tuesday 7 afternoon].
  • Second Semi-Final: Thursday 9 May: Live TV Show [Thursday 9 evening]; Jury Show [Wednesday 8 evening]; Family Show [Thursday 9 afternoon].
  • Grand Final: Saturday 11 May: Live TV Show [Saturday 11 evening]; Jury Show [Friday 10 evening]; Family Show [Saturday 11 afternoon].

The Jury Show is a full run through of the show that takes place the night before the televised version. It’s when the international juries cast their votes for the participants. Audiences can stay for a randomised version of the qualifier/points reveals, as the presenters practise for different scenarios.

The Family Show is a full run through of the show that takes place earlier in the day of the Live TV Show; it serves as one final rehearsal for the artists and crew, and as the name suggests, it’s much more convenient for those who wish to bring younger Eurovision fans. Again, the Family Show features a randomly generated presentation of the qualifiers and points.

The Live TV Show is exactly that: a live television show. Audiences across Europe (and Australia) will get to cast their votes to add to the Jury scores. No randomisations this time – it’s all for real!

Interest in Eurovision tickets is always expected to be high, but as fans who have travelled to a Contest before will tell you: traditionally it can be easier to secure tickets for the Jury and Family Shows. These shows have all of the content and performances of the broadcast shows, but leave you free to watch the Live TV Show as it was intended… on the television!
