SoTC Tips

A few years ago I missed the Sale of the Century! I knew it was coming, and by the time I realized it was happening it had been over for hours. Here are some tips to help remind you and for a quick and easy purchase experience!

  1. The link to the Etix sale site will go live 24 hours before the sale starts on July 18. You can't get in to the queue that early to purchase, but you can sign up for a notice/reminder about tickets going on sale and the start time.
  2. Set a reminder on your phone at least 15 minutes before the SoTC begins.
  3. Remember you can only purchase 10 tickets per online transaction.
  4. Have your payment ready so you can quickly complete the process once you have your tickets in your cart.
