Beware ticket touts!

Buy your tickets only from advance ticket sales outlets authorised by the BALOISESESSION.

For professional and private resellers, buying tickets from official advance ticket sales offices in order to resell them at a much higher price is increasingly becoming a lucrative business.In the process, artists, organisers and the general public all lose out.

To avoid excessively-priced tickets or fakes, we strongly advise you to purchase tickets only from official advance ticket sales offices authorised by us, and never from websites run byso-called ticket brokers such as Alltickets, Viagogo, Onlineticketsshop, Worldticketshop, Vienna Ticketoffice, Ticketbande, Ebay, Ricardo and others.

For more information, visit the website of the Swiss Music Promoters Association (SMPA).
