The Festival d’Aix-en-Provence provides its ticketholders with a Ticket Marketplace (Bourse aux billets), whose purpose is to connect ticketholders wishing to resell their ticket(s) with potential buyers, via the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence website, in a completely safe environment.

  • full-price or subscription-price tickets.

Tickets purchased from third-party resellers cannot be put up for resale.
The seller freely sets the resale price of his or her ticket, from 50% to 100% of the initial price. Under no circumstances may the price be higher than the price indicated directly on the ticket. The Festival d’Aix-en-Provence reserves the right to remove, without prior warning or delay, any ticket sale that does not comply with the rules from this Article.
