Danube Island Festival by day

Danube Island Festival

Europe’s biggest open-air event attracts around three million visitors to Vienna’s Danube Island each year. From June 27 to 29 there will be cabaret, great food, sports, a children’s program and, of course, numerous pop concerts. This year’s stars include Macy Gray, The Commodores and Count Basic – admission is free!

The last weekend in June sees Vienna’s Danube Island turn into a massive party scene. During a period of 600 hours, 2000 performers will present a program on 11 stages and in 19 themed areas. There will be entertainment for all ages and all tastes, and, of course, a huge number of stands to ensure that no one goes hungry.

The top acts of this 31st Danube Island Festival include music by R&B star Macy Gray, the Motown cult group The Commodores and the Austrian band Count Basic. Others include Kosheen, Genetikk, Bilderbuch and I-Wolf & The Chainreactions. Hit singer Nik P. will also be there, and Stefanie Werger, Andy Lee Lang and Ernst Molden will play more Austrian music.

Get an adrenaline kick on the Sport Island

Dedicated to sports activities in 2011, this little island between the U6 and Brigittenauer bridge has become a great success. It is being expanded this year and daring visitors can now jump from a height of 10 meters onto a huge air cushion, among other activities. There is also a speed climbing wall on which you have to climb up 15 meters as fast as you can.

Another novelty is the 20-meter long slackline that allows you to test your sense of balance. Advanced athletes can go onto the High Wire Garden (10 meters), where they have to overcome a number of obstacles spread over 40 meters.
