The world’s largest AIDS benefit event, the “Life Ball” celebrates its 25th anniversary on June 2nd, 2018 in and in front of the Vienna City Hall! This years motto of the world famous and spectacularly staged AIDS charity is the iconic music film “The Sound of Music”.
The Sound of Music
The procedere of the Life Ball is divided into two main program points. The opulent opening ceremonies begin with the arrival of the most colorful, splendid and unusual costumes as well as the prominent guests, who walk side by side over the Magenta Carpet and the fashions show at the Town Hall Square as well as the ball inside the Town Hall. Renowned designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Roberto Cavalli, Donatella Versace, Vivienne Westwood and Missoni have already shown their creations in the fashion show in the center of Vienna. Like every year, numerous celebrities are supporting the Life Ball free of charge.
Red Ribbon Stage at Town Hall Square
The spectaculare show on the Red Ribbon stage as well as the imaginative costumes of the guests lure more than 40,000 visitors and 500 international media representatives every year to the Town Hall Square. Suggestions for the life ball look that fits the motto of the ball can be found in the yearly published Life Ball Style Bible.
Access to the event of superlatives
Although the interest in the Life Ball is huge, the number of tickets has been limited to only 3,780. In order to ensure equality of opportunity, the purchase options are determined in the course of a draw. Part of these tickets are given as so-called “Style Ticket” at reduced rates. For this, a costume in the sense of the “Style Bible” is required. This strict regulation does not apply to visitors with full-price or VIP tickets as well as to the 250 participants of the exclusive Life+ Solidarity gala, but evening wardrobe is mandatory.
