We are working in partnership with Tramway in October 2019 so that the Take Me Somewhere Artist Pass will also get you concession tickets to all DIG (Dance International Glasgow) performances. View the DIG programme here:


We recognise the importance of artists being involved in local and global conversations around creativity, and understand that seeing a broad a range of work by national and international artists is an important way to fuel creative practice.

The Take Me Somewhere Artist Pass offers access to concession rate tickets for festival shows, to theatre, live art and dance artists.

To get your pass please follow these 3 easy steps:

1) Scroll to the bottom of this page and sign up to our mailing list (if you haven’t already). 

2) Email with your CV, biography or a weblink to your work. We will confirm by email when your Artist Pass is available.

3) Pick up your Artist Pass in person from the Tramway box office, bringing your confirmation email with you, along with ID. Tramway is located at 25 Albert Drive, Glasgow, G41 2PE.


  • Please bring your Artist Pass to each venue box office when buying and collecting tickets, and when attending events.

  • The Artist Pass covers one ticket per show for the individual named on the Artist Pass. Passes and tickets are not transferable. Please provide ID alongside your Artist Pass when buying and collecting tickets from the box office.

  • The Artist Pass provides you with a concession rate ticket at Take Me Somewhere shows where standard concession rate tickets are in place. 

The Take Me Somewhere Artist Pass would not be possible without the support of Outspoken Arts, Platform, Tramway, CCA and the Glasgow School of Art.


If you are a theatre, live art or dance artist and a parent/guardian and find childcare costs a barrier to seeing work in the festival, we have a limited number of £30 bursaries to put towards childcare during Take Me Somewhere. It will be on a first come, first served basis, with priority going to single parents. Please e-mail with a couple of lines on why this would be helpful for you.
