    You have to show up about 2 or 3 am and get in line for the free tickets.
    Remember it's at Radio City Music hall.
    First come - first served.

    The 2 or 3 am is probably your "safe" play, although I was able to get in line last year about an hour before they gave out tickets and I still got two. I don't know how many tickets are being alloted this year as compared to last. That would be interesting to know.

    I think last year it was something like 400 for the main room and 600 or so for the second room, but this year I don't know how the seating is set up. Getting there earlier may get you a higher level of ticket if they split it up that way.

    Found this.. I'm not sure if they are even giving out tickets this year.. it looks like you just line up an go right in as opposed to last year when you line up for tickets and then came back later to get in.

    GUIDELINES FOR ATTENDING : Local ordinances prohibit individuals from securing overnight positions on the sidewalks directly in front of or around Radio City Music Hall. Fans may line up on the morning of the free event at the direction of Radio City personnel. Fan entry will take place at the "Carriage Door Entrance" located on 50th street between 5th and 6th avenues. The draft is a first-come, first-serve event for the general public and is limited. Doors will open at 11 a.m. The draft begins at noon.
