Traditionally, Ukraine would be the next host, but due to the conflict in the country, the UK will step up to host instead.
Mykola Chernotytskyi, head of the managing board of the broadcaster, said in a statement: “The 2023 Eurovision Song Contest will not be in Ukraine but in support of Ukraine. We are grateful to our BBC partners for showing solidarity with us.
“I am confident that together we will be able to add Ukrainian spirit to this event and once again unite the whole of Europe around our common values of peace, support, celebrating diversity and talent.”

How to get tickets for Eurovision 2023?
Tickets for Eurovision 2022 went on sale on April 7, ahead of the first jury show on May 9. There were tickets available for nine shows, including the semi-finals and the grand final itself.
As this year’s show was hosted by Turin, tickets for the song contest were sold by Italian ticketing company Ticket One.
Therefore, we can expect tickets for the 2023 show will be sold by a UK-based ticketing platform. But this exact information has not yet been released.
Once organisers reveal when tickets will go on sale, Eurovision fans will likely be able to register for an account with the ticket sellers and will be able to sign up for notifications when they go on sale.
How much are tickets for Eurovision 2023?
Ticket prices for Eurovision 2022 varied depending on the show and the category.
Tickets for the Eurovision live final ranged from €150 to €350, while tickets for the family show (which took place earlier the same day) ranged from €40 to €150. Tickets for the jury shows and semi-finals ranged from €20 to €250.
Those buying tickets could only buy four per show, and they had to provide their name and personal details.
The names on the tickets could only be changed once and any reselling had to happen through an official platform, to prevent ticket scalpers from buying up the tickets to sell them on for profit.
