Why we’re freezing ticket prices

It’s a tough time for music events at the moment. Across the hospitality and entertainment industries, supplier prices are rocketing and promoters and venues are feeling the squeeze.

But we’ve taken the decision to freeze our ticket prices for 2023. This is why:

We want to be accessible to all

Community is very much at the heart of our ethos and we want to keep an open door to ours. When they go on sale this week, tickets will be available across three tiers at £27/£32/£37. We hope that still feels like a fair price for 12+ stages and 150+ artists – and whilst we’ve still got work to do to be accessible across the board, we hope that keeping the ticket price affordable goes towards that ambition.

We are giving you the choice

We’ve decided to put all of the ticket tiers on sale at the same time this year (subject to limited availability across each tier) and we’re asking you to pay for the one you feel you can afford. If you feel you have enough disposable income for a higher cost ticket could you leave a more limited low cost one for someone else?

Think about which future stars you might see! What would you pay to be in a tiny room with ANZ, Black Midi, Black Country New Road, Hannah Peel, Sampha or Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs now? £32? Bargain!

We all need some joy right now

Get your tickets for SFTOC 2023, bring your friends, have fun. 

Tickets go on general sale at 12 noon this Friday, with 24 hour priority access for mailing list subscribers.
