Sorting out tickets for events in Taiwan can be a challenge. Ticket agencies are few and there might be a language barrier if you can’t speak Chinese. We’ve written this article to help you find a way to get Taiwanese concert tickets, nevertheless.
Here are the best ways to purchase tickets for Taiwan events online.
Option 1: Official Retailers
If you don’t want to deal with resellers but prefer to purchase from official channels, you can do so for most events at either of the following ticket agencies. Keep in mind that tickets tend to sell very quickly, so the best seats, but also the cheapest categories can be sold out very soon. To purchase, you will usually need your passport number as well as a valid credit card.
This is usually the best site to purchase tickets for the most popular events such concerts of international artists on world/Asia tour but also musicals, dance shows, festivals and exhibitions. You can buy tickets on their website, which also has an English version.
If you are looking for tickets in smaller venues such as The Wall Live House or the Riverside Music Café, tickets are likely to be sold through this agency. Tickets can be bought through their website or App.
This site is actually an online shop specialized in books and other goods, but they also have a ticket section.
Option 2: Resale Tickets
We are not aware of any Taiwanese resale sites, but Viagogo lists concerts and events in Taiwan.
In some cases, purchasing from resale platforms online can be a good alternative to purchasing through the official retailers. This is especially the case if an event or the seat category you are looking for is already sold out.
Do note that for resale tickets bought online, price does not necessarily reflect the seat quality. In other words: a higher price does not always mean a better seat. Therefore, it is important that the seat location or at least the category is specifically mentioned in the offer.
We do not recommend purchasing tickets from touts on the street, since there is a risk that they are false or overpriced.
Option 3: Proxy Services
Proxy services (or “shopping services”) are able to purchase event tickets on your behalf and deliver them to your desired physical address or email. One such services in Taiwan that does handle event tickets is Two Tree Team.
