The Song Contest for first timers
You have watched the Eurovision Song Contest on television as long as you can remember. Ever wondered if you could attend the Finale yourself?
Every year, tickets for the shows are in extremely high demand. A large proportion of tickets are distributed via the local OGAE fan clubs, so it will help to become a member of your local OGAE.
Early in the year, a first batch of tickets will go on sale for the general public. Being a nerve wrecking online sale, the Final and Semi-Final shows are normally sold out within hours. However, it is also worth to try to buy tickets for one of the other shows during the week. The Dress Rehearsals and Jury Finals will offer you the full show as televised later while the performances are officially judged by the juries.
In total there are 9 live shows in Eurovision week to enjoy the live Eurovision experience in the arena itself. And even if you can not make it to the arena itself, the host city will breath 200% Eurovision this week.
The 2019 host: Let Me Show You Tel Aviv!
Netta's TOY will bring the 2019 Song Contest to Tel Aviv. The city's blossoming LGBT community is progressive and open-minded, making the city a favourite gay destination.
If you are not able to make it to one of the live shows, you still can soak up the Eurovision vibe in the city. Tel Aviv will buzz with special Eurovision (gay) parties at the bars and clubs and the tv live shows can be watched on big outdoor screens.
Next to that, Tel Aviv is great for sun tanning at the beach, enjoying Mediterranean food, drinks, it's gay nightlife, culture and some good shopping. An ideal Eurovision host!check out Nighttours Tel Aviv

The venue: Expo Tel Aviv
The Tel Aviv Convention Center, commonly known locally as Exhibition Grounds, is the location for the 2019 Song Contest and is located on Rokach Boulevard in northern Tel Aviv.
It is a relatively small venue, which will probably offer seats for only 4.000 fans. Rumours say that the adjacent hall, which will host the Green Room, will offer another 3.000 fan seats who will watch the show from tv screens.
The parties: EuroClub, EuroVillage & Euro Fan Café
Whether you have those live show tickets or not, there are plenty of opportunities to soak up the songs. Most likely, like every year, Tel Aviv will offer a couple of party venues for the all visiting fans. The EuroClub is the venue for some special parties, the official after parties and performances by participants, only accessible by accredited fans, delegates and journalists.
The yet to be confirmed Euro Fan Café is set up by OGAE and will offer concerts, parties and special events, open to all fans.
The EuroVillage will be an outdoor venue with big stage for live performances and big screens where the live shows are broadcasted (location TBC).
