Intimate gigs all around the world

Sofar Sounds shows start out as a secret. Guests sign on for three unnamed performers at undisclosed locations that are hosted by community members in everyday spaces — from living rooms, lofts and rooftops to offices, coffee shops and boutiques. Inclusive and accessible, Sofar invites guests to discover new artists, spaces, people, neighborhoods and cities, both at home and abroad.

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

Sofar will 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!

Connecting Artists and Audiences

Sofar shows are unique experiences. Each show lineup features three acts where every performer is given equal attention – there is no “opener” and no “headliner.” Sofar provides a platform for artists, both emerging and established, to connect with an engaged and passionate audience. Thousands of artists have performed Sofars around the world. Sofar events are respectful to artists and the people in the room, encouraging audience members to live in the moment, discover new artists and listen closely to the performance at hand.
