People over the age of 70 will no longer be able to attend the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam.
The Municipality of Rotterdam has informed ticket holders over 70 years old that they are now no longer able to attend the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. Based on the current guidance from Fieldlab events, those over 70 cannot attend even if they have been fully vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test.
Last year a number of over 70s had received free tickets to attend the Eurovision Song Contest and had been due to receive new tickets for this months competition. A total of 1,900 free tickets are to be allocated to the residents of Rotterdam to attend the show as part of ‘Celebrate Together’.
Those unable to attend due to the change in the rules will still be invited to have a fun Eurovision Song Contest. The Municipality of Rotterdam will send Eurovision packages to homes including flags, coasters, score cards and scarves.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will take place on May 18, 20, and 22 in Rotterdam. A total of 39 countries will take part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Eurovision 2020 was due to be held in Rotterdam after Duncan Laurence gave the Netherlands their first victory since 1975 with the song “Arcade”. After the cancelation of the 2020 contest, it was decided that Rotterdam would host the 2021 contest instead.
