Life Ball > Tickets



The regular ticket sale for the Life Ball 2014 took place from March 23 to April 3 in cooperation with the Austrian newspaper “Kronen Zeitung”. As inspiration and official start for the ticketing the Style Bible 2014 was published as an exclusive supplement of the “Kronen Zeitung Bunt” on March 23.

As we want everybody interested in a ticket to have equal chances of receiving one of the 3,780 Life Ball Tickets despite the high demand, the purchase options were allocated by drawing lots. Therefore, it wass unfortunately not possible to guarantee you a ticket or to bindingly book one in advance – it is Fortuna, the goddess of luck, that decided who was able to purchase Life Ball tickets.

Those who purchase Style Tickets agree to the Dress Code & Styling Conditions.
