Ticketing Information

Tickets on sale November 2019

Tickets for The Sydney 2020 will go on sale in November 2019. A variety of packages will be available for purchase from this date with exclusive access for members of the Friends of The Sydney. Package sales will open to the general public on Monday 3 February 2020. Single ticket sales open exclusively to The Friends on Monday 2 March 2020 and to the general public on Tuesday 14 April 2020.

There will be 26 competitive rounds over two and a half weeks, plus the Gala Opening Night concert on Wednesday 8 July 2020. The newly crowned First Prize Winner will give their debut performance as the winner on Wednesday 30 July 2020 in Sydney as part of a selected national city tour. Tickets can be purchased in advance for this popular concert along with other tour venues. There will be a range of seat options to suit everyone, including a new Premium seating area, giving you the best views of the

competitor’s hands on the keyboard in both the Verbrugghen Hall at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and the Sydney Town Hall for the finals week.

The Concert Hall at the Sydney Opera House will be closed for refurbishment in 2020 and the Sydney Town Hall will be the host venue for the finals. Seating capacity is smaller than the Concert Hall and therefore tickets will be in high demand for all four finals concerts.

Now is the perfect time to join the Friends of The Sydney as not only will members have first access to the best choice of seats in the Verburgghen Hall and the Sydney Town Hall for the finals, they also can enjoy discounts on packages and single tickets along with an easy payment plan of three equal installments for packages. Join the Friends of The Sydney here.
