Frequently Asked Questions - 6 Music Festival

How can I get tickets to attend?

Full details are available on our main Ticket Information page.

What are you doing to avoid the resale of 6 Music Festival Tickets?

Tickets are limited to 4 per event per customer and photo ID will be required to be presented by the lead booker upon arrival at the venue on the date of the show. The name of the lead booker will be printed on each ticket. The name cannot be changed once the booking has been made.

The lead booker will be asked to present ID to gain entry into the venue. Failure to adhere to the terms and conditions may result in the customer's order being void. If you are booking more than one ticket your guests MUST ARRIVE at the concert at the same time as you. Failure to do so may result in guests being turned away.

Tickets cannot be resold or transferred under any circumstances. If the organiser reasonably believes this to be the case the barcode on the ticket will be voided, prohibiting entry to the concert.

Tickets may not be sold, traded, or offered for sale; and may not be used as a prize or for any other promotional or trade purpose by any organisation except the BBC. Tickets are security issued and individually bar coded. Sale or attempted sale is grounds for seizure or cancellation and those trying to use resold or cancelled tickets will be refused entry into the venue.

We strongly recommend that you do not risk buying tickets that are being resold on secondary ticketing sites or privately. In addition to the above we cannot guarantee whether the tickets are genuine or if they are tickets that have previously been cancelled. Those who resell tickets are breaking the Terms & Conditions they agreed to during the booking process and we reserve the right to cancel their tickets.
