The Vienna Popfest offers Austrian musicians a highly respected live platform for innovative pop music for the sixth time. The playing continues for four days and nights on the Kunstplatz Karlsplatz, both open-air and indoors in the art and culture establishments, including the Technical University and the Vienna Museum.
4 days, 50 acts
The traditional lake stage opening in front of the Baroque Church of St. Charles' is performed on 23 July by the "Wiener-Soul" stars and three-time Amadeus winners 5/8erl in Ehr‘n. Next, Austria's electronic music poster child and keyboard magician Dorian Concept gives one of his rare live performances with his band.
Some of the highlights amongst the 50 music projects: the internationally celebrated sound artist Fennesz (Sunday, 26 July), the punk-folklore-dadaists of Attwenger and the Austrian bass music & reggae band Dubblestandart, which brings with it the high priest of dub, Lee Scratch Perry (Friday, 24 July). Also to look forward to are advanced pop acts such as Fijuka, with her brand-new CD, Innode, Aiko Aiko and Eloui.
