Press Club Concordia, an organisation of Austrian journalists and writers, has been holding a traditional Viennese ball at the Vienna City Hall each June for over 150 years. The 2016 Concordia Ball will be held on Friday, June 17th under the motto 'Viva la Vida!'. As one of the few summer balls in Vienna, around 2,000 guests attend every year, including high-level representatives from politics, business, arts & culture and the media.
For the second time in a row, the well-known Austrian Publisher and Editor in Chief of look! and Die Bundesländerinnen Uschi Pöttler-Fellner will support the Concordia Ball as ambassador. She's "very pleased that the 'writing guild' is in the spotlight with this major annual event."
The 2016 Concordia Ball skilfully combines the very best in fine Viennese ball tradition with Cuban flair and hot salsa music. Latin American dances such as Rueda de Casino will make you dance in the 'Havanna Lounge' until the morning light.
We thank our many guests for their visit to the 2015 Concordia Ball. Among the 2,000 guests from politics, business, media, art and culture were Thai designer iCONiC, Iraqi author Najem Wali and Chinese artist Deng Xiaomei.
