How Sofar Works

What's a Sofar Sounds show?

Sofar transforms everyday spaces - like a living room or retail shop - and turns it into a captivating venue for secret, live shows, creating an immersive experience that brings guests and artists closer together. Each Sofar is small, and typically features three diverse acts, with no headliner.

How do I get in?

1. Get tickets

Most Sofar shows are a lottery. You can apply for tickets up until 5 days before the events, unless tickets sell out. We'll let you know via email if you're invited to attend, if not, we still love you! Apply again for a future Sofar.

2. Grab friends

If selected, confirm your place. In some cities, this means purchasing tickets for you and up to 9 friends. In others, lock in your spots for you and a +1 for free. You can also come solo. You never know who you're going to meet!

3. Go to the gig

We'll email you a day before the show with the address of the Sofar and if it's BYOB. When you arrive, find a seat (floor seating encouraged!). You won't find out who's playing until you get there, so come with an open mind. You may even discover your new favorite artist!
