Song Festival tickets (all events) go on sale this Saturday, April 6th.
in a move that I consider to be quite cheeky, in person and phone sales start one hour earlier than online sales (logical in that in 2008 the whole system almost collapsed due to demand).
In person/phone: 11 AM Riga time
Online: 12 PM Riga time
Phone: +371 6737 1000
online: http://www.bilesuparadize.lv (make sure to create an account ahead of time)
if you want tickets, be sure to buy them Saturday. in 2008 the major events sold out the first day.
the major events this year being…
Dance performances - Daugava stadium (reminder - here the better seats are the higher seats, not front row!)
closing choir concert - Mežaparks
if it is anything like 2008, budget a few hours to get through, even online. Demand will be huge and the website will be very slow and likely have frequent timeouts.
