  • Yes, as long as the smartphone is damage-free because the scanning machines are sensitive. However, we recommend that you print it out to facilitate entry or alternatively download the ticket as a PDF file and increase the brightness on the screen before scanning. Avoid taking a screenshot/screen copy of the ticket on your smartphone as this worsens the quality of the image and makes it more difficult to scan.

  • Stockholm Live is only liable for the sale of tickets from our web sites (stockholmlive.com, friendsarena.se, tele2arena.se) our box offices, via the event promotor and ticket suppliers. We strongly advise you against the purchase of tickets from any other service or seller because we cannot guarantee the validity or the existence of the ticket and, you risk paying much more than the face value of the ticket.

    The automated ticket checking terminals at the arenas scan each ticket for a unique EAN code upon entry on the day of the event. The EAN code can only be used once and a person using a copy of a ticket will be refused entry. You cannot check in advance whether a ticket is valid or not.

  • No, it is only when the ticket has been scanned at the Arena that you will know that the ticket is valid.

  • Purchased tickets cannot be redeemed.
    If an event is cancelled a ticket can be redeemed at the point of purchase.

  • Tickets are not ‘personalized’ unless stated otherwise at the time of purchase. Where a promotor chooses to personalize tickets for an event, you will be informed of it on the event page. In such a case, if your name appears on the ticket you will be asked to provide valid identification to gain entry to the Arena.

  • During the ticket purchase you are asked to provide contact information, which gives us the possibility to contact you if any changes occur in regards to the event.

    We also publish the information in our social media channels and on our website. Please note that we cannot foresee events that might lead to cancellation. This type of information is normally handled by the promoter in charge, who then passes on the information to us. If there are uncertainties regarding any specific event, we kindly ask you to contact the promoter directly.

  • With the cancellation protection, you are entitled to cancellation if you or your relatives suffer from acute illness, accident or an incident at home such as burglary, fire, water damage or likewise.

    Read below how to apply for cancellation:

    Cancellation notification must be made by e-mail to info@stockholmlive.com as soon as the circumstance has become known to you and latest by the time the event begins, according to the event ticket.

    In the application, please state: name, booking number, address and telephone number of the person to whom the notification / cancellation relates and a description of the reason for the notification / cancellation.
    It is important that you send documentation that supports your claim to cancellation protection as soon as possible after the application / cancellation.
    Submit the documentation and send it to info@stockholmlive.com no later than 10 days after the registration / cancellation, in order for us to review your case and pay the compensation.

    If you are unable to attend the event due to the valid reasons listed and wish to use the cancellation protection, send us your unused event ticket in original. You also need to strengthen the circumstance with:
    (a) In case of acute illness, accident or death, medical certificate from the attending physician and, where applicable, death certificate.
    b) In the case of police or rescue services, certificates from the authority. For other unforeseen cases, emergency or damage in the residence, a detailed account of what has happened and notification to insurance companies.

    We undertake the right to pay the compensation to you who purchased the cancellation insurance if you have requested cancellation and supplemented with documentation within time and all the conditions are met. We will usually process the payment within 10 days after the complete cancellation and necessary documentation is received. Refunds will be issued after the event has taken place.

  • System cameras or other professional sound or image recording device may not be brought into the arena.

  • Yes, read more about the restaurants, bars and kiosks in each arena here:

    Opening hours and access to bars and restaurants vary between different events, read more about what applies before your visit on the event page.

    To make your visit safer, faster and easier, our arenas are cash-free.

  • You should feel safe and secure during events at our arenas. In Sweden, it is the event organizer’s responsibility for the safety of the audience. However, with our extensive experience in large-scale events and as the leading arena operator in Sweden, we collaborate closely with responsible authorities and organizers to create secure events.

    We collaborate with responsible authorities when it comes to broader security issues within our arena areas. This is to ensure that we always have the latest information and tools that may be necessary to help create safe and secure events.

    The specific security measures for each event depend on the needs identified by the organizer and the police, considering both the nature of the event and external factors. This work begins long before the event takes place and continues until the event is completed. Exact details of the security measures for individual events are never disclosed externally, as such information could be misused.

    We would like to highlight some general points regarding the efforts to ensure safe and secure events for you as a visitor. This is also to provide you with knowledge on how you can contribute to creating a secure arena experience:

    Cameras and Security Personnel Around the Clock

    We monitor our arenas 24/7, 365 days a year. This is done through camera surveillance monitored by security personnel and by security guards patrolling our premises.

    Staff on Site – Alert as Needed

    During events, you will encounter many of our hosts in the arena. If you notice anything unusual or require assistance, please inform our staff about what has happened, and they will assist in alerting the necessary authorities.

    Entrance Checks (Arrive in Advance)

    To enter our arenas, you will pass through either alarm gates, handheld metal detectors, or manual security screenings. Please arrive in advance ahead of the event, and always follow current advice and instructions for the event you are attending. As many of our events now have enhanced entry controls, please keep informed of any specific requirements before you arrive for your visit. You can find event-specific information on the page for the event you will be attending and general information in our FAQ.

    Closed Arenas Mean Safer Arenas

    You will encounter locked doors in our areas when there are no events taking place. No entry is allowed without proper authorization. All personnel working with us have undergone various forms of background checks.

  • No, the person who, after entry, leaves the venue is not entitled to re-enter since the ticket has already been used once.

  • Due to the recommendations of the Swedish Public Health Agency on high volumes there is a general age restriction for concerts at the arenas. It is incumbent upon the event owner to follow this, in accordance with the Swedish Environmental Management Agency. The age restriction is 13 YOA, even if the child is accompanied by an adult guardian. Exceptions are made for events that are specifically for children.

    Some people may wonder why the onus is not on the parents to protect their child’s hearing, for example with earplugs. The intention of the general guidelines from the Swedish Public Health Agency is to protect the hearing of all children – even if parents are cognisant of how to protect their hearing or not. It is the responsibility of the event owner that the sound environment and sound levels do not cause harm to visitors’ hearing. According to Swedish law (The Environmental Code) the event owner cannot transfer the responsibility of protecting the hearing of visitors to the visitors.

    At some events – see the individual event page – small children sitting in the lap of their parents has free entrance. All other events demand a ticket from all visitors regardless of age.

    An 18-year age limit applies to events where food and beverage are being served. The bars usually have a 20-year age limit for serving alcohol.

  • It is the promotor who decides whether the roof will be open or closed during an event at Tele2 Arena and Friends Arena. However, the roof is usually closed during concerts and during sport events it’s usually open (depending on the weather) during March-Nov.

  • At bigger concerts, temporary cloakroom solutions are usually available, but it varies from event to event and is a decision taken by the promotor of the event. Read more about what applies ahead of your visit on the event page where we update with information a few days before the event. To events.

  • Yes, there are multiple charging stations from Charge Fuze displayed at visible and easily accessible locations around our arenas where you can rent portable chargers.

  • Cueing is allowed from 07:00 AM on the day of the event. For security reasons, earlier cueing and camping around the arena is strictly forbidden.

  • Sometimes it may happen that the view from a particular seat is obscured by, for example, technology or stage equipment that has been added during the guesting productions stage building. In such a case or in case of other problems with the seats please visit the Guest Service/Information Desk as soon as possible and the staff will try to help you find other seats.

    Any complaints should always be made on-site at the arena’s Guest Service/Information desk. After the event has concluded, the seats are considered approved by you as a guest.

  • Smoking is prohibited in and around our arenas, and we don’t have any smoking areas to refer to at the moment.

After your visit

  • You can call our switchboard at +46(0)8-600 91 00, Lost and Found have opening hours Monday-Friday between 09:00-10:00. Other times, you are welcome to e-mail info@stockholmlive.com. Please leave further information about the object missing and the date of your visit to see if it has been found.

  • If you have any queries or problems during an event, please contact one of the on-site staff or our Guest service/Information desk and they will try to help you.

    During the majority of events at our arenas, Stockholm Live rents out the arena to a promotor. The promotor has the main responsibility for the event, which includes times, security planning, event design, age limit, sound- and light production. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please contact the promotor directly. Each event page shows who is the promotor.

    For questions or comments about food & beverage, you are welcome to contact our suppliers:

    Friends Arena: Five Moments.
    Tele2 Arena: Levy Restaurants.

    For other questions and viewpoints, please email us at info@stockholmlive.com


  • All our arenas have accessibility seats ready for anyone with extra need of accessibility in order to get in or out of the arena, or to be able to experience the event first-hand.

    Accessibility seats include the need for a wheelchair, impaired hearing or sight, limited mobility or any extra need that might occur. Any eventual accompanying person is welcome free of charge. The accompanier will be seated in a separate chair next to, or alternatively, in a regular seat behind.

    The exact amount of accessibility seats depends on the design of the event and its total audience capacity. All our arenas conform to the recommendations from SKL (Sveriges Kommuner och Landsting) that 2 permille of the available seats on any event should consist of accessibility seats. For any particular event, the amount of accessibility seats is decided by the promoter depending on design and audience capacity. Guide or assistance dogs are allowed to take to the accessability seats in each arena.

    To book a ticket with guide or assistance dog, contact info@stockholmlive.com
