Tickets at the concert box office
We open our concert box office one hour before the start of the performance. Here you can either purchase tickets or pick up tickets you reserved in advance. During the interval we are happy to provide information about the festival and offer you tickets for upcoming events.
What happens if I can’t attend an event?
If you can’t attend a concert for any reason, we will exchange your ticket for another ticket or a voucher up until one day before the event. The voucher is valid indefinitely.
On the day of the concert we will take your tickets on commission. Your tickets will be offered for sale as soon as all other tickets of the same category have been sold. For this service we retain 10% of the ticket price or at least a processing fee of 5 euros.
We cannot take back prepaid tickets at the concert box office.
The concert I want to see is sold out
If a concert you would like to attend is already sold out, please do not hesitate to call us on +43 316 825 000. We will be happy to put you on the waiting list and will contact you as soon as a ticket becomes available.

Always a great gift!
Our vouchers are valid indefinitely and can be used for all our performances (styriarte, PSALM, recreation, Meerschein Konzerte) and for our merchandise (DVDs, books, CDs, styriarte umbrellas). Vouchers can be issued for any amount. We will gladly gift wrap your vouchers or tickets free of charge. However, we would appreciate a donation of 5 euros in support of the initiative “Hunger auf Kunst und Kultur” (Hungry for Art and Culture).
What if I’m late for a concert?
If you arrive late, we will try to offer you an alternative seat. We will personally accompany you to the seat during applause or between parts of the programme. After the interval, you can move to the seat you originally purchased.
Please understand that this is not possible when concerts are being recorded or if the acoustics of the venue are particularly sensitive.

We always try our best to ensure accessibility for all our venues. If you need our help accessing any of the concert halls, feel free to call our ticket centre (+43 316 825 000). A staff member will call you back and arrange everything for you.
Service Email and newsletter
To make your experience even more enjoyable, shortly before the concert we will send you a service email with all important information, such as directions to the venue, refreshments during the interval or any changes to the programme. For this purpose, please give us your email address.
Our monthly newsletter provides you with the latest news about our programme. Please subscribe to our newsletter on our homepage if you wish to receive it. We will also keep you updated on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Follow us!
Changes to the programme or the cast
Changes to the programme or the cast are sometimes unavoidable. We will immediately inform you about any changes of this kind via our service email and on our website. Such changes do not entitle you to a refund.
Exchanging of recreation subscription tickets
If you are unable to attend a concert of your subscription cycle, we will exchange your subscription ticket at our ticket centre for another concert ticket for the current season.
Renewing of recreation-subscriptions
As we are confident that you will be fully satisfied with the quality of our programme each season, we assume that you will want to keep your subscription. Therefore, we will automatically renew your subscription for the next season. If you change your mind, you can cancel your subscription by a given deadline, which is usually around the middle of June. We will inform you in writing of the exact date.
