About Us

alt. tickets is one of the UK's leading ticket agents for independent live music, clubs, tours and festivals. Selling tickets for everything ranging from 50 capacity venues showcasing the next big thing, to national tours including Ed Sheeran, Massive Attack, The Killers and P!NK.

We were established back in 2000 and have consistently continued to break our own records selling tickets nationwide for must-see gigs, festivals, club nights and concerts.

We are a member of the DHP Family alongside 8 leading venues in the UK. Established primarily to sell tickets for DHP Family events, alt. has expanded over the past 20 years selling tickets for big and small events for a variety of external promoters.

After moving away from our home at Rock City, alt. became an exclusively digital platform capitalising on innovative industry trends as well as our impressive social media, email and affiliate network.

We are a full member of STAR (Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers) so you can buy tickets with confidence via alt. tickets. Get more information about STAR here: www.star.org.uk

We're proud to support a number of charities – currently Attitude Is Everything and Framework. You can donate to these charities and help continue the incredible work they do by rounding up your order at the checkout.
