Scarfie band Six60 is proving to be the biggest drawcard amid strong ticket sales for O-Week events.

Otago University Students' Association marketing and communications manager Katrina McLennan said ticket sales were strong, with all 2000 super passes, which give entry to all O-Week events, selling out on Sunday afternoon.

``These are always really popular, especially with first-years as they are extremely good value and provide the ultimate taster of what being a student in Dunedin is all about,'' Ms McLennan said.

Tickets for single events were selling slightly faster than last year.

Six60, scheduled for tomorrow night, proved to be the most popular event, with about 5000 expected to attend the gig at Forsyth Barr Stadium.

``These guys are huge in New Zealand, but especially loved here in Dunedin in the city where they formed while studying.''

Non-students could buy tickets for Six60 and themed dress-up event Down the Rabbit Hole featuring Hermitude (Thursday) at Forsyth Barr Stadium.
