Ticket Information:

Tickets for this event have now sold out. We’re sorry if you missed out; the demand for tickets was huge this year.

Please do not risk buying tickets through unofficial channels.

We understand your frustration that some people may place adverts on secondary ticketing websites. We do not agree with people selling tickets on for profit, however legally there is nothing we can do to prevent this happening.

The BBC reserves the right to ask ticket holders for their identification linked to the purchase of the original ticket upon entry to the event. We strongly recommend the public do not risk buying tickets that are being resold as we cannot guarantee whether they are genuine or if they are tickets that have previously been cancelled. Those offering free or paid tickets for sale are breaking the Terms & Conditions they agreed to during the booking process and, if discovered, we reserve the right to cancel their tickets

If you did miss out of tickets there are still plenty of opportunities to be part of this year’s 6Music Festival. Listen to 6 Music from 10am on Tuesday 26th January for details about tickets to other 6 Music Festival shows and events still to go on sale!
