A big event with a serious background
Celebrating the joy of life and the diversity of cultures, Life Ball unites the social tradition of the Viennese ball culture with opulence, extravagance, glamour, fancy performances, committed speeches as well as emotional moments.
Life Ball guests have always been encouraged to wear fancy, unusual outfits as the creativity of the styles and costumes is part of the concept and contributes to the unique flair of the event. The Life Ball Style Bible is an inspiration for ball guests to feature their own Life Ball aqudate look according to the annual changing motto.
The Life Ball can be divided into two major events:
— Red Carpet & Opening Ceremony with Fashion Show at the City Hall Square
— the actual Ball as well as the Party inside the City Hall
Each year, the opening ceremony attracts tens of thousands of visitors as well as 500 national and international media representatives to Vienna´s City Hall Square, where everybody can experience the 2-hour show on the Red Ribbon stage live and for free.
Following the Opening Ceremony, the jamboree starts inside the city hall for 3,780 holders of Life Ball tickets. Many halls and yards of this historical building open up for guests, indulging them with an iridescent show comprising live concerts of national and international stars, DJ sets, exciting performances and culinary surprises until the early morning.
