What's a Sofar Sounds show?

Sofar Sounds reimagines the live event experience through curated, secret performances in more than 400 cities around the world. Sofar brings guests and artists together in unique locations, without the distractions that plague other live events. Sofar serves as a platform for artists to connect with engaged audiences in cities around the world.

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.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?

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. 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!

Where did Sofar Sounds come from?

In 2009, Rafe Offer invited some friends over to a London flat for a low-key, intimate gig. Eight people gathered in the living room to listen to live music performed by friend and musician Dave Alexander. They shared a drink, and sat on the floor, attentively listening to the music. The room was so quiet, you could hear the clock ticking in the background.

Quickly, what started as a hobby in London spread into a global community for artists and audiences to come together in unique and welcoming spaces - with an added element of surprise - to share, discover, create and, hopefully make a friend or find their new favorite band along the way.

Today, Sofar Sounds is a community of thousands of artists, hosts, fans, travelers and more, putting on hundreds of secret, intimate events per month, across 437 cities around the world.

You're invited. Come on in.
