In 2008, when SOS was held in a place called ‘The Dragon Hall’ it was situated directly opposite a pub. A lot of the staff and many of the guests at the time joked that ‘nobody but the drunks over the road would turn up!’ It seems amazing to think that with more than 3 times the capacity of the Dragon Hall, last year, it took less than 3 minutes for all the tickets to be sold out.
With that in mind, this is probably one of the most important announcements if you want to attend this years event. The Summer of Sonic website has published the details of how tickets will be distributed this year. Here is what you need to know.
There will be two waves of tickets.
The first wave will be on Friday 5th July at 7:00PM (BST)
The second wave will be on Sunday 7th July at 6:00PM (BST)
There will be 450 tickets in both waves.
Furthermore, the ticketing system this year has altered too, you now get to select how many tickets you want, (maximum of 4). Before you fill out your details. So you won’t have to race to fill out a form and then click submit and be disapointed if all the tickets for that wave have gone.
Booking tickets is done via the SOS website, at this specific link.
Authors Note: I shall update this with more specific details as and when I get them.
If it’s anything like last year, tickets are expected to sell out very quickly. Please be online and ready before they go live in order to avoid disapointment.
Oh and, if you were wondering how much it will cost you to get a ticket for this years event…
Tickets are Free!
SOS 2013 is held on August 3rd at the Methodist Central Hall Westminster in London.
