Q: HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO ATTEND THE BALL?
A: 21 or older.
Q: WHERE’S THE BALL BEING HELD?
A: Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas
Q: WHAT’S THE CLOSEST AIRPORT?
A: McCarren International Airport, about 5 minutes away from the Hard Rock.
Q: HOW DO I GET THERE?
A: Drive, or better yet, take a taxi,limo, Uber or Lyft. Traffic, parking, everything will be a nightmare on Halloween night in Las Vegas, and with the Fetish & Fantasy Ball being the biggest Halloween event in Vegas, the area around it will be a zoo. If you’re not staying at the hotel, we strongly recommend leaving the driving up to someone else so that you can just concentrate on having fun.
Q: IT’S MY FIRST TIME, WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
A: The FFHB is a mandatory costume ball where attendees can display their wild side in a public setting without feeling bound by the rules of day-to-day life. It’s a chance to dress in sexy, seductive, and outrageously creative attire, however, it is not uncommon for people to attend dressed in modest outfits or gag costumes. Constant entertainment, and surprises around every corner make this event like no other. With attendees from all over the world, our events are an ideal way to explore your secret self, make some new friends, and see some things you don’t see every day. And remember “YOU ARE THE SHOW, SO DRESS TO THRILL”.

A: The FFHB starts at 10:00pm and ends at 3:00am. VIP’s have an early admission cocktail reception beginning at 9:00pm.
Q: DO I NEED TO WEAR A COSTUME?
A: You need to adhere to our dress code which is roughly COSTUMES of any type, FANTASY / FETISH WEAR such as: uniforms, leather, lingerie, latex, rubber, p.v.c., lace, feathers, saran wrap, or anything else you might dream up. FORMAL WEAR meaning tuxes for men, gowns for ladies. Ladies may wear sheer fabrics, and revealing outfits, but no nudity is allowed. See DRESS CODE for complete information.
Q: WILL I BE ABLE TO ENTER THE BALL AT ANY TIME?
A: As long as you have a valid ticket in hand that has not been scanned you will be able to enter the event from the moment it opens until the time it ends.

A: Set and performance times can be found under the ACTS tab on this website.
Q: ARE TICKET PRICES GOING TO INCREASE FROM WHERE THEY ARE NOW?
A: Yes, they go up over time and as allotted ticket amounts are sold. Tickets are cheapest during the holidays (November, December, January) at about $50 each, and go up periodically from there.
Q: WHY THE TICKET SURCHARGES?
A: Ticket surcharges begin with credit card processing fees. These are added to ticket purchases in proportion to the price of the ticket. These go directly to credit card companies and are unavoidable. Clark County adds a 9% tax to tickets of all “Entertainment” providers which is called an LET charge (Las Vegas Entertainment Tax). LET is unavoidable, and is sometimes built into the price of your ticket, or camouflaged. The ticketing COMPANY then adds their own surcharge as well, to pay the employees that service your orders. How MUCH they charge is the “surprise”, but again, unavoidable. Purchase your tickets before June 1st, and avoid surcharges.
Q: WILL TICKETS BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR?
A: Depending on the venue, some tickets may be available at the door, but mainly on years when Halloween falls in the middle of the week.
Q: IS THERE ANOTHER WAY TO BUY TICKETS OTHER THAN THE INTERNET?
A: Yes. After Labor Day you can purchase at the Hard Rock Box Office or at any independent Ticketmaster location.

A: All tickets purchased through this website are shipped by certified mail beginning in mid-September. Tickets purchased after September 6th will be shipped according to your selection at time of purchase. VIP Tickets are only available through this website.
Q: ARE VIP TICKETS AVAILABLE ANYWHERE ELSE?
A: No. VIP tickets are only available through this website.
Q: WILL TICKETS SELL OUT?
A: There is always a chance that the event will sell out in which case no more tickets will be sold. We recommend purchasing early so that you can rest assured you will be able to attend. Some ticket types and/or price categories have smaller quantities and will sell out more quickly than others.
Q: CAN I UPGRADE MY GA TICKETS TO VIP TICKETS?
A: Yes. Prior to September 6th of each year, upgrades can be done online.
