Details are still unclear as to whether an audience in the huge 16,500 capacity venue will be allowed to attend or what measures will be in place if they are.

The Arena was of course set to host Eurovision 2020; before it’s cancellation and is due to host Eurovision 2021, so perhaps the ‘Songfestival 2020′ will serve as a test event for how social distancing measure could be implemented if they are still required for the main Eurovision show in 2021.
