PHP Eventbrite API Client Library


API key

Eventbrite API keys are available here:

User key

Eventbrite User_keys are optional. They are only required if you need to access private data. Eventbrite users can find their user_key here:


Load the API Client library

require 'Eventbrite.php';

Initialize the client by setting your authentication tokens

Add your authentication tokens to make this example work:

$eb_client = new Eventbrite( array('app_key'=>'YOUR_APP_KEY', 

Initialization using OAuth2.0 tokens

You can also initialize the API client with an OAuth2.0 "access_token":

$eb_client = new Eventbrite( array('access_token'=>'YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN')); 

Or, initialize the client by using an intermediary OAuth2.0 "access_code", which will automaticaly be exchanged for an OAuth2.0 "access_token":

$eb_client = new Eventbrite(array('app_key'=>'YOUR_API_KEY', 
                                  'access_code'=>'YOUR_ACCESS_CODE' )); 

For more information and usage examples regarding OAuth2.0, see our

Documentented API methods will be available on the client object

See Eventbrite's API Docs for more information about the available method calls. Request parameters should be encapsulated in an array of key/value pairs as in the examples below:

event_get example

// request an event by adding a valid EVENT_ID value here:
$resp = $eb_client->event_get( array('id' => 'EVENT_ID') );

// print a ticket widget for the event:
print( Eventbrite::ticketWidget($resp->event) );

event_search example

$search_params = array(
    'max' => 2,
    'city' => 'San Francisco',
    'region' => 'CA',
    'country' => 'US'
$resp = $eb_client->event_search( $search_params );

event_new example

$new_event_params = array(
    'title' => 'My test event',
    'description' => 'testing event creation, remember not to set the privacy or visibility of test events to "public".',
    'start_date' => date('Y-m-d H:i:s', time() + (7 * 24 * 60 * 60)),
    'end_date' => date('Y-m-d H:i:s', time() + (7 * 24 * 60 * 60) + (2 * 60 * 60) )
    $response = $eb_client->event_new($new_event_params);
}catch( Exception $e ){
    // application-specific error handling goes here
    $response = $e->error;
