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.
A Sofar will typically feature three acts, with no opener or headliner. Each lineup is carefully curated to give audiences a diverse show and artists equal attention. We request that guests arrive on time for the first act and stay through the entirety of the show. During the sets, we ask guests to refrain from talking or texting.
How do I get in?
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. Bring some drinks and 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!
