The ticket price of 45 Euros includes a rich buffet with a variety of food including vegetarian dishes, drinks and selected entertainments. The following sponsors have been won by the LinuxTag-Team for the LinuxNacht: Oracle, Microsoft, Nokia as well as XL Energy Drink. 

The tickets for the LinuxNight are available at the box office at the Umspannwerk, in the online ticketshop (2) and at the entrance to hall 7 at the LinuxTag.
