Make it a night to remember with fast-track entry and access to premium hospitality

Already have a ticket to see your favourite act play at Glasgow’s most iconic music venue? Well, we’re here to make it an unforgettable night at the OVO Hydro and spoil you the Virgin Money way. You can get fast-track entry into the arena, plus special access to the Capital FM Starsuite lounge with a feast of food and drinks available for you to purchase before the show.
