|||”Survivor” tips at HSBC Arena”


MixJukebox said that they won’t interfere at the line formation, so we don’t know how it will work. We strongly discourage people sleeping at the venue region, because it doesn’t have any buildings close to and there are no shopping or bathroom near, only if you get a cab/bus, so it is a very dangerous place if you aren’t in a big group. We recommend that, if you want to get a good place, just arrive early on the 7th, don’t sleep over.


||| Food:

HSBC Arena has restaurants and fast food on its inside, but they are a little overpriced.



  • Taxi (it starts counting around 2.16 dollars and increases)
  • Bus: (around 1.35 dollars)

Ask for help at your hotel, if you want to come by bus. The lines that go to HSBC Arena are: 332; 352; 613; 706; 708 and 736.

|||13 years or under

Brazilian who are 13 years old or under that age need to show an autenthic document signed by the parents or legal guardian stating a person who’s 18 years old or above to be responsible for the minor. We don’t know if this is necessary for foreigners, so we recommend for you to send an e-mail to MixJukeBox.

1) Will there be any goodies for sale?

No, there will be only Music Bank t-shirts.

2) Why can’t I take my camera? If I do, what will happen?

Music Bank will be broadcasted at South Korea and cameras and filming equipment would be troublesome for the show. If you insist and take your camera, you will be asked at the entrance to discard it. Be careful!

3) Are there any places where I can keep my bags at HSBC Arena?

Yes, there are lockers at the building that costs around 4.50 dollars. 

8) Can I give gifts to the artists?

Mix Jukebox stated that they are still working on how to get the gifts and said that they will probably collect them at the line before the concert starts.

9) How can I buy the tickets?

Go to https://www.ingressorapido.com.br/Identificacao.aspx, starting from May 10th, and click at the box that says “País de origem: Brasil” and select the name of your country (search for its name in Portuguese first). After entering your ID number, we hope the rest of the formulary is in English.

9) How does the pre-sale works?

If you are a member of the Korean official fanclub of any of the seven groups that are going to perform at Music Bank, or a HSBC client, or came to the NU’EST event organized by Mix Jukebox in Brazil, send an e-mail to contato@mixjukebox.com.br, asking for your password to access the pre-sale that starts May 8th!
