Tickets en Programma

How can I buy tickets for events at Sugarfactory?
open sluit

The easiest way is to buy them online through our website. With a few special exceptions and in the case of free events, you can buy tickets online for all our shows.

If an event is not sold out, there’s a possibility to buy tickets at the door on the night itself. We accept cash, PIN and Credit Cards. The box office opens when the doors of the venue open. For opening times of each show, please check our calender.

What to do if a program I have bought a ticket for is cancelled or moved?
open sluit

It sometimes happens that for whatever reason, we have to cancel or move an event. In case we move the event, your ticket remains valid. If you can’t make the new date, please mail us at info@sugarfactory.nl to receive your refund (inc. servicecosts). If the event is canceled you will also be fully reimbursed. We try to wire the money within a few weeks.

Do I get a discount with my CJP card in Sugarfactory?
open sluit

Yes, for (almost) all concerts and live shows you will receive a € 2,50 discount with your CJP card, if you buy a ticket through the website and enter your cardholder details. The discount is not valid at the door, unless specified.

Where can I find my e-tickets?
open sluit
After you’ve purchased your ticket online, you’ll receive an email which contains your e-tickets in pdf-format.
What should I do if I haven’t received an e-ticket?
open sluit
It could take several minutes before you’ll receive an email containing the conformation of your purchased tickets. First, check if your mailbox has enough space for the tickets to arrive and also check your junkmail folder.
If that doesn’t provide any answers, you can then visit ACCOUNT in the menu of our website. After logging in with the same credentials you used to acquire the tickets, you’ll notice a summary of your purchases.
If your ticket is included and confirmed in the summary, it’ll mean that the transaction has been complete but that you’ve probably filled in your email address incorrectly.

In the account webpage you can change your email address. After that it’s possible to request the tickets once more, which will then arrive at your newly submitted email address.

If this still doesn’t work, then it’s always possible to contact us by email, which is info@sugaryfactor.nl. Make sure to add a screenshot of your bank transaction. We will help you as quickly as possible.
Can I cancel my purchase?
open sluit
Unfortunately this isn’t possible. After the transaction the purchase will be irreversible. Only if a show is canceled or if it’s being delayed, will you receive an alternative date or a complete refund. The most reliable platform to sell your e-tickets on, is www.ticketswap.nl.
Do I need to pay service costs when I buy tickets online?
open sluit

We charge € 1,50 servicecosts for online transactions.

Do I have to print out my pre-sale ticket or can it be scanned from my phone?
open sluit

To be sure, yes please bring a print-out of your ticket. While technically possible to scan a phone screen, oftentimes it doesn’t work and in that case, we respectfully have to refuse entry.

Is it possible to hire Sugarfactory for private events?
