Tickets for BBC 6 Music Festival by Day have now sold out. We’re sorry if you missed out; the demand for tickets was huge this year

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

There are still opportunities to be part of 6 Music Festival this year. Some ticket will be given away in on-air competitions on BBC 6 Music in the weeks leading up to the event so keep listening for more information.
