Due to extremely high demand, tickets for the three traditional end of year concerts of the Vienna Philharmonic are drawn by lot exclusively on the Vienna Philharmonic website. In this way, music lovers from all over the world have an equal chance to purchase these highly desired tickets. Between April 1 and 30, 2021, applications will be accepted to take part in the drawing for tickets to the end of year concerts 2021/22.
Application Period: April 1 - 30, 2021
During this period, interested persons are invited to apply on this website for tickets to the Preview Performance (December 30, 2021, 11:00 AM), the New Year's Eve Concert (December 31, 2021, 7:30 PM), and the New Year's Concert (January 1, 2022, 11:15 AM).
The first step toward making an application for tickets is to register for the drawing. The registration is separate from your user account for the Webshop and is specifically for the drawing. This registration is valid for one year.
Users can enter their ticket preferences for the upcoming concerts during the application period in April. Here you can indicate for which concerts and in which categories you would like to purchase tickets. You may register once for each of the three concerts.
The number of tickets for the New Year's Concert is limited to two, and the number of tickets for the Preview Performance and New Year's Eve Concert can be up to four. The ticket prices range between 35 € and 1200 € for the New Year's Concert, 25 € and 860 € for the New Year's Eve Concert, and 20 € and 495 € for the Preview Performance. The program is the same for all three concerts.
Should you wish to make a change in your application, you may only do so during the application period (April 1 - 30). In May, you will be informed of the results of the drawing by e-mail.
There is also a limited amount of wheelchair seating available for each concert as part of the drawing. The application for this seating is also made using the drawing application form. Each application for wheelchair seating includes a place for a wheelchair and a seat for an accompanying individual.
When Should I Apply?
Within the one-month application period, the actual time of application is irrelevant. An application made on April 1 has the same chances as an application made on April 30.
The only way to obtain tickets for these concerts is by taking part in the online drawing! Requests submitted through the postal system, by e-mail or by any other means will not be considered!
