Vienna’s Karlsplatz becomes an open-air site again this year when the Vienna Popfest is held for the fifth time. This year’s program is particularly extensive thanks to the lively and diverse music scene.

Already a much-loved tradition is the opening concert on 24 July, which is held on the ‘Lake Stage’ erected in the large stone pond in front of St. Charles’ Church. Rap star Nazar plays new songs in a live recorded HipHop show and encounters his young colleague Yasmo.

Other highlights at the Vienna Popfest include the concerts by the internationally celebrated hang drum virtuoso Manu Delago and the band Elektro Guzzi. The crowd can also look forward to Effi, Ernst Molden and Willi Resetarits. Fans are excitedly anticipating the premiere of Holy Oxygene by the electronic artist Cid Rim. Combined women power is provided by the experimental artists Mia Zabelka with “Medusas Bed” feat. Lydia Lunch, Dorit Chrysler and Mira Lu Kovacs with her band Schmieds Puls.

Pop fans can look forward to around 60 concerts outdoors on Karlsplatz and indoors in neighboring cultural institutions, such as the Wien Museum, Künstlerhaus and the Vienna University of Technology. Admission is free.

The Popfest also takes place in the MuseumsQuartier Vienna on 26 July. As part of the themed summer MQ Summer of Sounds, there are acts at four locations: in the Mumok Imperial Stables, in the Kunsthalle Wien Ziegelfoyer, in Salon Leopold and in Café Leopold.
